ELA on perustettu vuonna 1988. ELA on akkreditoitu FELTOMin (Maltan englanninkielisten opetusjärjestöjen liitto) perustajajäsen, ja se on täysin pätevöity Maltan opetusministeriön toimesta. Olemme Maltan yliopiston virallisia edustajia. Vuosien varrella koulumme haluavien opiskelijoiden määrä on kasvanut huomattavasti. Tämä on kannustanut meitä laajentamaan ja avaamaan uuden keskuksen.
Laajentumisesta huolimatta meitä pidetään edelleen ”pienenä” kouluna nykypäivän markkinoilla. Näin voimme säilyttää maineemme kouluna, joka antaa erityistä henkilökohtaista palvelua. Koulussa on ”perhemainen” tunnelma ja ryhmämme ovat pieniä ja kansainvälisiä. Koulumme enimmäiskapasiteetti on 350 opiskelijaa.
Englannin kielen opettajat ovat täysin päteviä, omistautuneita ja kokeneita
ja ovat englanninkielisiä tai kaksikielisiä puhujia.
ELA sijaitsee Gziran kaupungissa, joka sijaitsee vain 10 minuutin päässä Slieman merenrannasta ja on edelleen kävelymatkan päässä kaikista tärkeimmistä kohteista, kuten ravintoloista, baareista, kaupoista, apteekeista ja luonnonkauniista näkymistä, joita tämä suosittu alue tarjoaa.
Tarjoamme täyden palvelun, mukaan lukien majoituksen, täyden vapaa-ajan ohjelman, lentokenttäkuljetukset sekä edustajistamme palvelut, jotka puhuvat sujuvasti useimmilla kielillä. Pääkoulun rakennus on täysin ilmastoitu, ja siinä on hyvä vastaanottoalue, videotilat, ruokala ja opiskelualue. Koulu tarjoaa myös ilmaisen internet-yhteyden kaikille ELA-opiskelijoille. Olemme avoinna ympäri vuoden maanantaista perjantaihin paitsi juhlapäivinä.
ELA has partnerships with the following universities and colleges in Malta. You can gain full or conditional acceptance into one of these institutions.

It was a good experience, I learn a new language because before came to Malta I didn’t speak English and now I feel really happy for my progress. In my point of view the new location is good,however the last location in Sliema it was perfect because has a lot of amenities.
In general the lessons was good, excellent staff of teachers, the staff in general it was always polite and helping when you have some inconvenience. The School should be work in integrate more the students.
Thank you very much for your review!
As you rightly pointed out, ELA has always been very strong in the academic area and we pride ourselves in delivering engaging lessons which ultimately help our students improve in the language which will undoubtedly open many doors and opportunities.
At ELA we also have a fun packed activities programme for all our students. In fact, activities are organised everyday both in the afternoon and in the evening. However, we have taken your constructive comment on board and we will be marketing these programmes more with students.
It was a pleasure to have you join our family at ELA and we wish you all the very best for your future endeavours :)
I would prefere more games during the day, not only at the end of the course. The location was ok. The teacher was ok.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Dear Mr. Pietsch,
Thank you for your feedback on our courses. We will be forwarding this to our Director of Studies who will ensure that your feedback for more language-based educational games in the class gets passed down to our teaching staff.
Nonetheless, I am pleased to inform you that we offer a fun packed-activities programme for all our students. These activities take place in the afternoon and in the evening as well as during the weekends, keeping our students gainfully occupied whilst interacting with students of different nationalities and getting to know Maltese history and culture. I am also pleased to inform you that these activities change weekly.
We hope to see you again next year, and please note that all of our students are more than welcome to give us feedback during their course, which generally leads to immediate results in the area in question.
I am a beginners. This week was for me good decision.
I was 8 hour a day and can more learn.
the course´s was right divided up.
The teachers were excellent.
I met new friends.
Malta is very nice island.
the host family were very friendly and helpful.
This was very nice week.
Now, I must learn still more.
Thank you very much for your review! We are very pleased you have enjoyed your stay at ELA and that you have improved your skills in the English language. It was a pleasure for us to welcome you to our international family and we look forward to having you again with us.
We wish you all the best!

It was my very first time studying English abroad. Therefore, I don`t have any comparison. However, the course was very good since everybody was very committed and professional. I hope to come back again.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

Our school was very good. Stuff were always ready to help you. But there was problem with ventilation system in our class, it must be improved because it is difficult a little to learn when it is hot in the classroom. My host family was very polite and nice.

to study in Malta I came with my family. We lived in apartments near the school, near the embankment of Sliema. I studied. From June 4 to June 15 at school I really enjoyed studying. I learned many new words, I heard the speech of English teachers , met new friends. in my group there were 7 people, most of them were Russian children. we tried to talk only in English. Teachers speak only English, they explain everything, I understood them. Classes are small, clean and air conditioners work there. I liked studying and I want to come to Malta to continue my studiesNäytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
What I like is that the school is warm and flexible to students, moreover the school does care about the students.
This is my first trip to Malta, and I got somehow like allergy with insects there. If there had been a pre alert, I would have been better prepared.
It will help if there is a more precious examination for the new comers, which is able judge their level and put the same in the same class.
In general I consider that the teachers were good professionals. Some weeks we were 10 mates in the class and the dynamic was difficult to us. Other times the majority of the students were from Germany then I had to adapt the german accent and requirements. I prefer the mixture of nationalities. During the course I had to sufer the alteration changes in the school, sometimes it disturbed the classes. In other hand I didn't feel monitoring about my improvent and the planning of my course.
When I've had some problem about accommodation or in other sense, the management and administration were very polite and efficient. Therefore I only have good words about that
the school was useful, but outside the school I did not know how to practice the language. maybe that's why next apartment for better placementNäytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

The courses aren't good organized, that's why you note a big difference between the students in one class. The teacher, I'm sorry to say that, don't have enough experience with teaching except some of the business English teachers. I would like to have harder exercises and more new words, I tried to change my situation but all of my trying got nothing. The administration wasn't enough helpful.
With housing the host family was nice but the eating was at all unbearable, doesn't tasty. The beautiful thing was only the international atmosphere between the students, but that's alone wasn't enough.
Dear Mr Al Awihee,
First and foremost we would like to thank you for your feedback. We at ELA are always seeking ways of improving on the service we offer our students, as can be attested by the other comments on this page.
I would like to start by saying that ELA has been established since 1988 and is a founding member of FELTOM, the local organisation representing the most important schools on the island). ELA’s academic staff complement is fully qualified as per the regulations laid down by the ELT Council within the Education Department. In addition, our teachers have to attend regular CPD training to ensure they keep abreast of the latest pedagogical approaches to the teaching of English. We also observe our teachers at work and have regular staff development meetings in order to ensure that a very high standard is kept. It is in the school’s interest that this is so, since our best adverts are the many satisfied clients that leave our school content with the quality of language teaching they receive.
As you well know, on the first day you had to sit for a student placement test which consisted of two parts: a 30-minute multiple choice test consisting of 46 questions to test your grammar and lexis, together with a 5-minute oral test to gauge your level of spoken English. In the written portion of the assessment you scored roughly half the marks available, while in your speaking test you fared slightly better with the examiner’s note saying that there was a noticeable first language interference in pronunciation and also sentence structure. Moreover, it was felt that you needed to work on widening your vocabulary pool. Needless to say that these results did not reflect an Advanced (C1) level, as you insisted you were, but, rather, an Intermediate (B1 – Higher) level.
When you disputed this placement, we followed the normal procedure of conferring with your tutors, all three of whom confirmed our initial assessment. However, we consented to you sitting for a progress test, to eliminate any lingering doubts. Normal procedure in our school is for learners to be allowed to sit for this test after four weeks of tuition, however we allowed you to sit this test after only ten days, as you were very insistent that you could not possibly have been an Intermediate level learner, but in fact insisted that you were an Advanced (C1) level learner.
This test was corrected by a different person in order to ensure an entirely objective assessment. You were given an Intermediate Level Progress Test in order to see if you had successfully completed at least 75% of the Intermediate Level syllabus. Unfortunately, the score in that test was quite a bit lower than the minimum 75% required to move up to a new level, and we were forced to strongly recommend that you stayed in the Intermediate level for at least another two or three weeks, as this had, so far, been supported by two different assessments, two different examiners, and three different teachers (apart from the fact that this review is replete with grammar and syntax errors not usually committed by a C1 learner).
We however, accepted your request to change to our business course since it would have made your lessons more relevant to your work-related needs. When we approached you to see how you were faring in class, you told us that everything was fine after this change, hence why we cannot fully understand the reason behind this feedback.
We are pleased to note that you enjoyed your time with the host family we chose for you. Since you commented that the food was somewhat ‘tasteless’, we took the trouble of contacted all the students who happened to be staying with the same family to check what they thought of this issue. All were very satisfied with the food and portions given.
One final note: At ELA we take pride in carefully assessing our students before placing them in the classes we think are most appropriate to their level. This is also important to ensure that prospective applicants do not find themselves in a situation where other students in their class have a different overall CEFR level to theirs, as would have been the case here if we had acceded to your request.
I liked study in your school. I hope to came back in the future.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

The lessons were interesting and the teachers were really good! The atmosphere was nice! The organisation before hand was good, but not in that certain week. When I started at Monday, it was very chaotic at the office. For Business English, people with different language levels were put together in a group, but that didn't make sense. There could be a big difference between someone who is just B1 and someone who is almost C1 which I didn't like. I also tried to explain that during the course, but there was no other way.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

We are very pleased you had a great time at ELA Imre! We look forward to welcoming you back at ELA :)
My accommodation was fair. My apartment was dark, and the front neighbor was too near. Usually, I had the curtains closed. I had a European plug.
The Wi-Fi wasn’t working all the time. The best place was at living room. The furniture, I think, could be improved. The cleaning staff was good and kind.
The ELA School was kind. I did not know any other method to learn English. I think there are other methods to learn English.
Personally, 40 hours was too much. We finished at 16 to 15h in the afternoon, which is quite late to do anything after.
The most interesting, in my opinion, maybe, is 20h or 30h, and the last session to be “one to one” – a mixed method.
The materials used were usually photocopies, except for one book, which we didn’t use.
I have improved my English, but not a lot. I need more conversation, an environment of real English, and more time!
Dear Ms Abad,
Thanks for taking your time to write a review about your experience at ELA. We are pleased to see that overall your experience with us was a pleasant one and that you would not hesitate to recommend us to your friends. As regards your problems with your accommodation, these could have easily been addressed if you had approached one of the staff there or communicated this to the schools’ accommodation department, as detailed in the student pack given to all students at the start of their course. For instance, on checking with the Mercury residence, we were told that all guests that ask for an adapter are supplied with one, no questions asked. As you may know, there is no universal electrical plug system.
It is pertinent to point out that this particular accommodation option is aimed at younger students who are here on a tight budget, hence the lack of fancy furniture (in fact most of our 50+ students prefer 3*hotels in the area). However, we are pleased to note that you were more than satisfied with the overall cleanliness of the place.
With reference to the tuition offered, we are pleased to see that you did register progress in the 2 weeks here. As you rightly point out, there are a number of different methodologies that one may pursue in their quest to learn the language. At ELA we favour the communicative approach as we find students easily adapt to this fun, hands-on approach. This explains why our teachers source a number of course books and websites to plan their lessons. The workbook provided, is mostly availed of by teachers to provide supplementary homework as opposed to classwork.
We are of course glad that you found all our staff very approachable and friendly, especially since ELA markets itself as being the school that offers a personal service and were a family atmosphere reigns supreme.
With reference to the number of sessions booked, we partly agree that 40 sessions per week may be too much for some. However, not every student is the same. As you rightly point out, students can book from as little as 10 up to 40 group sessions per week. It all depends on the needs and exigencies of the student. Your suggestion of opting for a mix of 20 group and 10 individual sessions is very possible and, in fact, is quite popular with our students.
We would also like to point out that contrary to the wrong perception one may get from the review, at ELA we insist that our students are immersed in English and are totally against resorting to students’ mother tongue in order to teach English. Our policy is to mix our students’ nationalities as much as possible to ensure that this is never resorted to. Moreover, our fully qualified tutors know this and regularly undergo training to keep abreast of the latest pedagogical advances to ensure that the most effective teaching occurs in our classrooms.
Your comment regarding the need for more English comes across as somewhat contradictory, especially since the review states that 40 sessions were too much and next time round you would be opting for 30. There is also an element of truth in your final comment that one needs more time to master the language (especially seeing that the level in question was pre-intermediate ), 2-3 weeks is definitely not enough to achieve this. In fact, we always tell our students not to view language courses as an end in themselves but as the first rung of many that will eventually get you closer to that objective.
Hope the above puts your constructive comments in the right perspective. We look forward to welcoming you once more at our school.
It was much better than in a classical college and there were no college stereotypes. The professor was very sympathetic. If I had any negative thing to say, it would just have to be that the pauses were long and were not as interesting as the classes.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
