About Us

Established in 1988,

ECS was one of the first English language schools in Malta and a founding member of FELTOM. We are a boutique operation that provides a personalized learning experience with individual attention lavished on each of our students.

Our language school is housed in two adjacent typical Maltese townhouses that have been expertly converted into classes, leaving the characteristic features and combining traditional charm with modern equipment.

Situated in Sliema, one of Malta’s most popular tourist areas, we are only a stone’s throw away from the sea. Our school is ideally located close to shops, cafés, restaurants and beaches.

Due to the size of our operation, we pride ourselves in being able to guarantee that personal touch to all our students.

Our school is also ISO 9000 Certified, providing an added guarantee of quality assurance across all our services.

Our Vision

Our Mission

ECS welcomes students of all ages, nationalities and different walks of life to come and learn, improve and master their language skills. We offer the ideal environment for learning, combining high academic standards with a relaxed friendly atmosphere and a committed team.

Individual attention is our hallmark and improvement is guaranteed in whichever course you choose. This approach, along with vast experience and a variety of courses to choose from, is what makes ECS a successful English language organization.

Our aim is to provide students with a home away from home and to develop their English language proficiency in an environment which fosters development, providing students with a unique learning experience.

These courses are ideal for students who require, or prefer, individual attention for the whole duration of the lesson time. Together with the teacher students determine the specific objectives for the course, and lessons are then structured to reach these aims. Whether students want to revise grammar structures or improve their pronunciation, individual lessons help you to progress in those aspects of English that they really want to focus on, at their own pace.

Students also have the option of having group lessons in the morning and private lessons in the afternoon, in order to reap the bene ts from both types of courses due to the different interaction patterns used in class.
