BELS were established in Gozo in 1997 for the teaching of English as a foreign language. The School was, and still is, located in one of the most beautiful surroundings in our sister island. The learning objective there includes a cultural element and a total focus on the client.

During the last twenty years, BELS evolved into a multi-faceted school offering a service not only in Gozo but also in Malta, in St Paul’s Bay. The age bracket of its clients has expanded further, and now includes a TEENS School in summer. BELS English language schools in Malta and Gozo are open year-round.

BELS has solidified its organisation, built new bridges and reached out to clients from far-reaching nations. Its vision, developed from knowledge from its past, is clear and full of optimism:



The Vision at BELS is supported by its Mission Statement:


Our past has taught us that the focus on the client can never waver. BELS strives to supply a complete quality experience to our students, irrespective of age and interests. BELS Gozo, with its beautiful countryside surroundings in Kerċem, serves clients who are after a serene experience which can be supplied in conjunction with the Gozitan culture and its clear blue waters. BELS Malta in St Paul’s Bay, has a more varied clientele, both in age and interests. Here, the teaching style and cultural experiences are moulded to meet the expectations of its clients.
