Our General English Standard and Intensive courses are also available as mini-groups. This option is 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.

Enrolling in a mini-group 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.

These are available at our BELS Malta and BELS Gozo English schools. 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.
