BELS Malta Language Schools are Owner-run, with over 20 Years of Experience
BELS first opened its doors in 1996 with a small, family-run English school on the island of Gozo. 20 years later, our passion for English has expanded to two lively year-round language schools. Today our schools include a year-round adult school in Gozo and a year-round adult school in Malta which also offers seasonal junior programmes.
Throughout all the growth, we have retained our core values and principles: we provide quality education and services, and we choose to remain small and client focused. At our schools, we know each student by name and their individual learning needs.
