NSTS MALTA – COURSES

 

Our Director of Studies heads the Academics Department and is supported by associates and teachers who are all dedicated and passionate about teaching to make your learning at ESE stimulating, rewarding and fun.

 

ESE offers a range of courses which are designed to improve your proficiency in the English language. These programmes vary in terms of learning levels, duration and the number of participants in each class.

 

We offer General English, Business English, Long Term and Academic Year Courses and Examination Courses. Closed groups are also welcomed in either General English or a specific discipline such as Banking, Hotel Management, etc.

 

At ESE we follow the Council of Europe and the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE) system by which the language competency levels are defined. These CEF levels range from A1 (roughly equivalent to elementary level) to C2 (Proficiency).

 

Every student is tested and interviewed on his/her first day of attendance at ESE in order to establish the student’s correct level of English. Furthermore, the class teacher will analyse and monitor the specific needs of the student to ensure the students’ progress and that the student obtains the maximum benefit from the course which he/she undertakes at the school. Learn more about Teen and Adult courses.

 

GENERAL ENGLISH (20/30 LESSONS): Improve your basic English. You can choose from either General English 20 or 30 which means 20 or 30 lessons of 45 minutes each per week.

 

These courses are designed to improve your general proficiency in English. Our aim is to develop your ability to communicate more effectively and to understand English as it is spoken by native speakers. These courses therefore cover the basic skills of speaking, reading, listening and writing, as well as the development of your grammar, vocabulary and fluency in the language.

 

These courses vary in terms of learning levels, duration, and the number of students per class (with a maximum of ten students per class). Also courses can be tailored to suit the needs of students in a particular class.

 

INTENSIVE ENGLISH: Group & one-to-one

This is a combination course consisting of a General English 20 course in the morning and private one-to-one tutoring in the afternoon (10 lessons per week).

 

This course is ideal for students who would like to improve their level of general spoken English while focusing on an area of particular interest.

 

MINICLASS: Learn in smaller groups

A Miniclass English course is similar to a General English (GE 30) course of 30 lessons per week but it is a smaller group with a maximum of 6 students only.  This ensures extended student-teacher interaction time to satisfy individual requirements and to make your learning more effective.

 

PRIVATE TUITION: Learn more in less

This course is specifically designed and recommended for clients who have limited time available  for study and wish to make the maximum progress in the minimum  time available. You will  have continuous monitoring and evaluation of your progress with your own tutor who will be chosen  to meet your special needs.

 

BUSINESS ENGLISH: Focused on individual professional needs

A 'Needs Analysis' will be conducted prior to your starting the course to determine the specific aspects of Business English which you would like to develop further. The course is flexible enough to take into consideration your individual professional needs.

 

...essential business skills

Being a small group of not more than six students, there will be lots of time for hands-on sessions focusing on essential business skills such as negotiation, participating in meetings, delivering presentations and doing business in an international environment.

 

...and social language skills

Your proficiency in English will also improve substantially through an expanded vocabulary, greater grammar awareness and improved writing skills, while attention is also be given to developing social English language skills.

 

ACADEMIC YEAR COURSES

 

Study English for extended periods

Academic Year Courses are designed for students who want to study for extended periods or study at a university where English is a requirement for entry. These courses could either be one semester or the full academic year course of two semesters, totalling six or nine months respectively. The courses, which schedule 30 lessons per week, commence in January and September, with the course syllabus combining an extensive English language programme with a cultural one. AYC courses have a maximum of ten students per class.

 

Learn how to learn efficiently

The core curriculum concentrates on the four essential skills necessary to enable learners to communicate in English – speaking, listening, reading and writing.  Students will also be taught skills which will allow them to become more effective and efficient learners. There will be a focus on pronunciation while grammar will be taught in context.

 

Leisure activities included

A typical day at ESE is split into three one-hour sessions in the morning and a further hour and a half in the afternoon. In addition to joining other students on afternoon activities, AYC students will be entitled to free participation in activities such as film shows and organised walks.

 

OPTIONAL CAMBRIDGE, TOEFL IBT OR IELTS EXAMINATION: Towards the end of their course students will have the option of either enrolling in the Cambridge Main Suite Examinations, TOEFL iBT or the IELTS Examination preparation course (subject to students being at the appropriate entry level). Examination fees will apply. Students not joining an examination course will enroll in a General English 30 course appropriate to their level. Students who are not able to start on the designated start dates may join the AYC on other dates at ESE's Director of Studies' discretion.

 

IELTS (INTERNATIONAL ENGLISH LANGUAGE TESTING SYSTEM): Your proof that you are able to study in English
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination is a widely recognised and reliable means of assessing whether candidates are ready to study or train in the medium of English. It is owned by three partners – The University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate, the British Council and IDP Education Australia.

Academic or General Training: 
Students taking up this programme can choose either the Academic or General Training option. The Academic option is designed for students taking the entry test to undergraduate or postgraduate studies or for professional reasons. The General Training option, on the other hand, is aimed at students taking the test for entry at vocational or training programmes not at degree level, for admission to secondary schools and for immigration purposes.

 

Join any time: Unlike the Cambridge Series of examination courses that have fixed starting and examination dates, students can join an IELTS class at any time during the year. Examinations are held on a monthly basis. More information: If you would like more information about IELTS please visit their website at http://www.ielts.org/

 

TOEFL IBT - TEST OF ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN-LANGUAGE INTERNET-BASED TEST: The Test of English as a Foreign - Language Internet-Based Test - (TOEFL iBT) is a recognised English-language assessment test and accepted by over 6,000 colleges and universities in 130 countries including the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and New Zealand. 

 

"Using the latest technology, the TOEFL test is given in an Internet-based format (iBT) that fully integrates all 4 language skills measured: listening, reading, speaking and writing. A paper-based format (PBT) is given where Internet-based testing is not possible. With unmatched scoring procedures and security measures, the TOEFL test is the industry standard in English-language assessment. The test is held on a monthly basis and classes run throughout the year.

 

CAMBRIDGE EXAMINATION COURSES: A Prestigious Examination Series

Cambridge ESOL suite of exams has a wide range of certificates from General English for academic purposes to Professional English for the world of business. Cambridge certificates are recognised the world over by employers, universities and colleges and serve as proof of one’s level of English.

 

The Cambridge Main Suite of Examination courses is offered three times a year in January, March and September for examinations which take place in March, June and December respectively.

 

This programme consists of a 12-week preparation course with 20 lessons per week, in classes of a maximum of 10 students, leading to the prestigious Cambridge Examination Series: the Cambridge First Certificate (CFC), the Cambridge Advanced Examination (CAE), and the Cambridge Proficiency Examination (CPE).

 

Furthermore, we can also prepare you for the lower-level examination Key English Test (KET) and the Preliminary English Test (PET), which can be studied over a seven-week period.

***Testimonial; Here’s some information for those thinking about staying with ESE School.

 

We were well received at the airport, a bit shocked to have our picture taken, with a strange little device, but it was painless and ended well. The pictures are not works of art, but can be used for Student cards!!! Just Kidding!!!

 

The families were wonderful, very kind and attentive, so we all enjoyed our stay very much. The classes were great fun the teachers cool so we did not feel sorry for having “sacrificed” our week’s holiday to learn something new, which we did.

 

Malta is absolutely beautiful, even at this time of the year. We enjoyed our trips with the tour guides and rides on local buses. The bus drivers are species of their own, but eventually you get used to them. The school Staff are very nice and they really made us welcome.

 

We would like to thank everybody for “all the special treats” and the ones included us well as making our stay so pleasant. We will definitely come back, next time in summer. And to those hesitating, we can not recommend the ESE School high enough.

 

Thank you very much again.

ESE selects its host families after a thorough screening procedure which includes interviews and inspection. When placing students with host families, ESE takes into consideration any special requirements students may have, such as dietary restriction.

 

*** After we started hosting students, I found meeting different people from all over the world so fascinating. Adapting to a different culture and language is challenging especially when students are not fluent in English. But, watching them progress during their stay, and helping them improve, gives me the chance to get to know them better.

Host Family Caruana (Malta)

 

*** Hosting students gives us the possibility to meet people from all over the world from our home. We love to exchange our traditions, history and experiences as well as make new friends. Our students are more than just guests...they soon become family!

ESE reserves the right to charge a replacement fee of €5 for the replacement of a lost Student Card.

 

Teenage School Transport Service: The school offers a daily private pick-up transport service to school for all teenage students. The service operates from a number of pre-designated pick-up points (close to all of our host families/residences) as shown on the ESE map. This service is free and available to all students booked on teenage courses. It is very important for the student to know where and at what time to be at the pick-up point. This will be indicated in their Welcome Pack.

 

After school, students are offered free transport to ESE organised activities. Students attending afternoon lessons are only provided with free transport to school directly from the morning leisure activity.

 

First Day At School: All new students will sit for a Placement Test which will enable ESE to place the students in a class most appropriate to their age and level of English. During their first day at school, students will be informed about their level and classroom. After the Placement Test the teacher will give out relevant and helpful information with tips and guidelines for a more enjoyable stay in Malta.

 

ESE Group leaders will visit classrooms giving out important information to every student such as the Activity Programme, which contains a daily overview of the pre-paid and optional activities during that week with detailed explanations of the time, prices, and meeting place of these activities.

 

Every week ESE organises a Welcome Party to which all new students are invited and at which students will meet most of the ESE Staff members. The Welcome Party is the start to an enjoyable and worthwhile language and leisure experience in Malta.
