EC Language Centres

Introduction

Our Mission: Helping students succeed in a global community

We believe the best way to teach English is to fully immerse our students in the language and culture of an English-speaking country. We offer a wide range of English language courses for students of all levels and ages and aim to provide a 'home away from home' for our students, by assisting them with airport transfers, accommodation and continuous support during their stay. We believe that by being able to speak English, our students will broaden their horizons and give themselves a competitive edge. While studying in an English-speaking country we want our students to learn about the local culture and cultures of their international classmates. We believe that better cultural understanding brings people together and benefits all. When our students leave us, we want them to take with them an improved level of English, a better understanding of the world, improved opportunities and memories and experiences they will never forget.

Whether you learn English for school, university or English for the workplace, we have an English course that is perfect for your needs.

Accredited Schools

Our centres are accredited by the leading associations in their respective countries and also by the major international organisations. These accreditations prove our commitment to providing high quality and innovative English language courses in all of our centres.

Choose EC for Guaranteed Success

If you do not progress at the rate we expect, we will provide you with support, additional lessons and all the help you need to reach your target level at no extra charge. Your end of the deal is to show us full commitment by attending all your lessons and completing all your assigned work.

Origins of EC

EC Malta was established in 1991 as EC’s first and only school. This small school quickly gained a wonderful reputation and became one of the leading English language schools in Malta. Fast-forwarding to today you can see where this reputation has taken us. EC now has 17 schools in five countries on three continents. This year EC’s 700-plus staff will help over 40,000 students from over 140 countries to learn and improve their English language skills.

What Makes EC Special

You will only find EC schools in English-speaking countries and only in the top locations. Our schools are always in the most prestigious and central areas of the city. Choose any EC school and you will be impressed by the facilities the school has to offer. We heavily invest in keeping our schools modern and comfortable for you. We know you will learn better when you are relaxed and in a good environment.

From innovating Club 50+ to Freestyle English programmes, we’re always looking at introducing new courses and improving the service we offer. We listen to our students and appreciate the feedback they give us. This allows us to establish new English courses as the needs of today’s English learners change. Maybe that’s why 97% of 40,000 EC students would recommend EC to a friend!

In our worldwide centres, we have accumulated a combined total of over 150 years of English language teaching experience and each new EC school helps us to enrich ourselves, making us more diverse and adding to our strengths as a whole.
