  3. Classroom tasks: small classes provide a supportive learning environment
  4. After-class: teachers set homework tasks which extend your classroom learning
  5. Self-Access: you are given guidance on computer-aided learning

IELTS measures your ability to communicate in English across the four language skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing. For people who intend to study or work where English is the first language, IELTS can be a crucial qualification.

IELTS is recognised worldwide in more than 4,500 institutions in 120 countries, and is regarded as the single most important requirement for non-native speakers who wish to enter a university worldwide.

You will normally need a score of 6.0 or higher to join a university in the UK, while universities elsewhere need to be checked individually.

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.
