Welcome to BELS
We’re the language school with a difference. Our clients’ needs are given priority, and we truly mean it. BELS is an owner-run organisation built on core values: we supply quality service, we choose to be small and we remain client-focused.
We take pride in being a dynamic organisation, which is sensitive to global trends, thus operating schools which adhere to international accreditation standards. We strive to have the best teachers, with courses and services that stand out as the finest offered on the Maltese Islands.
Our culture is based on a holistic language learning approach that fosters learning both inside and outside the classroom. We offer our clients English courses in an environment that is conducive to learning, always providing a warm and welcome break from the hectic lifestyle.
The BELS group includes two adult, year round schools: one in Kerċem, Gozo and another in St. Paul’s Bay, Malta. BELS also runs a seasonal junior program during Easter, summer and autumn, in Malta.

BELS were established in Gozo in 1997 for the teaching of English as a foreign language. The School was, and still is, located in one of the most beautiful surroundings in our sister island. The learning objective there includes a cultural element and a total focus on the client.
During the last twenty years, BELS evolved into a multi-faceted school offering a service not only in Gozo but also in Malta, in St Paul’s Bay. The age bracket of its clients has expanded further, and now includes a TEENS School in summer.
BELS has solidified its organisation, built new bridges and reached out to clients from far-reaching nations. Its vision, developed from knowledge from its past, is clear and full of optimism:
TO SHARE OUR PASSION FOR LEARNING ENGLISH
The Vision at BELS is supported by its Mission Statement:
TO SUPPLY A 360˚ QUALITY EXPERIENCE TO OUR CLIENT, WHO IS ALWAYS OUR MAIN FOCUS
Our past has taught us that the focus on the client can never waver. BELS strives to supply a complete quality experience to our students, irrespective of age and interests. BELS Gozo, with its beautiful countryside surroundings in Kerċem, serves clients who are after a serene experience which can be supplied in conjunction with the Gozitan culture and its clear blue waters. BELS Malta, in St Paul’s Bay and Mellieħa, has a more varied clientele, both in age and interests. Here, the teaching style and cultural experiences are moulded to meet the expectations of its clients.
