At our English language schools we also offer mini-group courses which are ideal for students who prefer to learn in a smaller classroom environment. Mini-group courses have a maximum of 6 students per class, therefore guaranteeing more individual attention from the teacher and the ability to learn at a slower pace. Each of the group courses at our English language schools can be taken as a mini-group course; both our General English Standard courses and General English Intensive courses have a mini-group option for all levels of English. These are available at our BELS Malta and BELS Gozo English schools.
Enrolling in a mini-group at one of our English Language Schools in Malta and Gozo offers specific advantages such as more guidance, feedback and individual attention from the teacher. The limited number of students per classroom benefits learners as each student allows for more speaking time per student. Lessons can also be personalised more due to address individual requests. Moreover, a small classroom environment gives the teacher more opportunities to observe and asses the students and their individual learning needs.This usually results in more effective learning, especially for quiet students who can receive more encouragement from the teacher. In addition, each student will have more speaking time and direct feedback from the teacher.
Our standard and intensive mini-group courses focus on the four language skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking) and the language systems (grammar, vocabulary, phonology, discourse). All lessons are delivered in a communicative and student-centered approach.

Additional courses & things to do after learning English in Malta and Gozo:
Many students who have specific learning goals and would like individual attention to reach their aims also register for individual lessons in addition to their group courses. Combination courses are ideal for students who would like to benefit from interaction in group lessons, while also deal with personal weakness when learning English.
Outside of our school there is also a lot to see, do and taste. When it comes to exploring the Maltese islands, we also have a number of activities on offer at our schools.
