Beginner English Courses in Malta and Gozo

General English Beginner Course (20 lessons / max. 12 students)

This two-week course is suitable for complete beginners and students who are new to learning English. The course includes 20 lessons per week, and has specific start dates. Lessons are delivered in our bright and modern centers, using interactive boards and a student-centered approach to enhance the learning experience. 

It will help students gain the confidence needed to start using English and provide the necessary language input to begin to understand and speak English in everyday situations. The course material covers the foundations of the English language. It will help students understand and participate in basic conversation using common expressions and phrases.  Students will also gain skills in all areas of the language: grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, reading and writing. In addition, the course equips them with the necessary skills to become autonomous learners of English. 

Our lessons are communicative, allowing you to develop your communication skills by practicing the new language, working with classmates and taking part in activities such as role-plays and interviews.

Since this is a starter English group course, there is no minimum level of English required to join. Once the beginners course is completed, you will be ready to join an Elementary level group course (A1).
