Course Book (Only for Ace Group 20 / 30)

Students on an adult course are provided with one course book throughout their stay at the school. Students will need to purchase additional coursebooks when they move up to a higher level or change course.

In the event that students require a change of level within their first week, students are able to exchange their coursebooks for a new book as long as the original book remains in the same condition with which it was provided.

Students who are unable to physically collect their course book prior to their first lesson may receive a code to access their book online. In such cases students should then collect their physical book from the school on the first day they are able.

The course book includes access to a free app that features a digital interactive version of the book and additional gamified language practice activities for class preparation and consolidation.

Placement test

One week before you arrive, we'll email you (or your agent will) a copy of our placement test, so keep an eye out for that. This test helps you and us to understand your English level and decide the best class for you, so as to ensure the optimal learning experience.

Classes are available for students of all different skills and experience levels, from Beginner to Advanced, with the lessons and course material of each class tailored carefully to fit the different levels as described in the CEFR guidelines:

  • Beginners = A1
  • Elementary = A1+
  • Pre-Intermediate = A2
  • Intermediate = B1
  • Upper-Intermediate = B2
  • Advanced = C1

Good value for money. The school is new with very good equipment, all classrooms are modern and have media boards, and WiFi is also very important. The education system includes extra conversation, grammar and conversation classes, which are free of charge. The explanation of the teachers is very understandable. The location of the school is convenient, because nearby there are many cafes and restaurants for lunch, shops and supermarkets. I am looking forward to coming back again!




At first I was a bit afraid because of the school. But soon after my arrival, I saw that my fear was for no reason. They picked me up exactly at the level I was at and helped me with passion to reach the level I wanted to be at. They help each other, laugh, spend time together and explore the island and its culture as well as the cultures of the other students from all over the world.




This English adventure in Malta has changed my life. My teachers at ACE helped me to improve my English and successfully complete one of my goals. The school is very modern, and the location is just perfect. I have made new friends from all over the world and they have become part of my family.

I came to this school and I gain a lot, not only for learning English, but also for friends and happiness. I feel happy every day because of this. I like to communicate with classmates and teachers, they are very enthusiastic. I like to study here.




My experience as a student at ACE English Malta has been amazing because I met people from different countries. Even the school has a lot of activities that helped me to improve my English, such as free conversation classes, afternoon movies or social clubs. Also, the great life in Malta with the spectacular views and picturesque beaches make your adventure out of this world.
