The standard course included in the Ministay is the General English 20 Course for Juniors. This course includes daily classes from Monday to Friday. The focus is primarily on spoken English; students will learn functional English to help them in real social situations. Special attention will be given to useful vocabulary for the activities/trips they will be participating in. Students take part in English conversations and discussions, not only with the teachers and leaders but also with their peers. By combining classroom lessons with an immersive cultural experience by organizing different activities and excursions around the Maltese islands, the Ministay allows students to practise their English and boost their confidence in the language through real-life situations and adventures shared together.

School groups always benefit from our General English for juniors courses and/or our courses for teens, and students always take home fantastic memories of their time in Malta, while the lessons at ACE English make a huge difference to their English-speaking skills and performance. The syllabus can be designed to focus on any of the following areas:

  • English for Academic Purposes
  • Business English
  • Study Skills
  • English for CLIL (Art, Mathematics, Chemistry, Literature, etc.)
  • Maltese Life and Culture
  • English Language Exam Preparation
  • Pronunciation
  • English Projects

Another advantage of this Ministay is that lessons are held in the main school centre, whose stylish and spacious premises are one of our proudest selling points. When students walk into our school for the first time, they are always impressed by the modern, sleek interior design, the lush, spacious and welcoming environment, and the positive atmosphere throughout.

Within our state-of-the-art premises, students will find themselves in air-conditioned, brightly lit and spacious classrooms, all fully-equipped with the latest interactive whiteboard technology, as well as specially and professionally designed IWB lesson made by ACE exclusively for ACE students.

Activities (Sample)

With most of the student's stay in Malta actually taking place outside of the classroom, we realise how important it is to structure that time outside of the lessons in order to make sure that students are always having fun and being encouraged and stimulated to use their English on a variety of cultural excursions, beach trips, sports, and entertainment. The Activity Programme is always an extension of the language course; a diverse range of opportunities for students to discover, play and share adventures through English.
