AELS Courses

All courses at AELS-Malta are designed to engage and motivate our students. Lessons are delivered by highly-experienced education professionals using the most recent educational materials. 

AELS-Malta language courses are levelled according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Language Learning and Teaching established by the Council of Europe. Entry level to our courses varies according to the course chosen. The student’s level of language-learning is established by means of a placement test which can be taken online.

AELS-Malta has an open door policy where the Director of Studies is available to offer support and advice about any academic issues.

We believe that linguistic skills will progress much more rapidly as a result of students being fully immersed in the serene English-speaking environment which the school offers.

We offer a range of courses, ranging from General English to IELTS Exam Preparation, Business English and English for Specific Purposes (ESP), One-to-One Courses, Conversation Classes and Closed Group Courses. More information regarding the length of lessons, duration of courses and how to book a course can be found in the sections hereunder.
