The daily courses in the Junior Programme are held in the school building or in a modern school building located close to the main school. The school center is located in a stylish and spacious, modern premises.

Within these premises, students will find themselves in air-conditioned, brightly lit and spacious classrooms, all fully-equipped with interactive whiteboard technology, as well as specially and professionally designed IWB lessons made by the ACE Academic staff exclusively for ACE students.

The Course

The standard course included in the ACE Junior Summer Programme 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 life 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 junior summer programme allows students to practise their English and boost their confidence in the language through real-life situations and adventures shared together.

Individual or Group Bookings

The ACE Summer Junior programme can also be organized for groups of classmates and their teachers, for individuals and also for young learners who are accompanied by their guardian or guardians, who would like to go on holiday together.  

Our young learners will take home some fantastic memories of their time in Malta and the bonding experience of helping each other to learn, as well as having built on their self-confidence and pride in their improved English language skills.

Junior Activities (Sample)

With most of the student's stay in Malta actually taking place outside of the classroom, we realize 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 in 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.
