Our General English standard course focuses on giving the learner balanced practice in both systems (grammar, vocabulary, phonology, discourse) and skills using general topics and authentic material. The course concentrates on all the four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing with special emphasis on fluency. The aim of these English language courses is to improve the students’ skills in all the areas of the language.

Lessons are conducted using the communicative learning approach and the blended learning approach. Therefore, our English courses are interactive and combine the use of both traditional and digital learning tools. Our lessons incorporate a range of activities for different kinds of learners in a multinational classroom. They will help learners improve comprehension of grammar and expand vocabulary while also practicing using the language in practical, everyday situations.

This course is available in Malta and Gozo with a maximum of 12 students per class. Lessons are held in the mornings on weekdays. If you prefer smaller groups for your English language courses in Malta and Gozo, BELS offer mini-group courses with a maximum of 6 students per class.
