The ECS language school is housed in two expertly converted Maltese townhouses in Sliema, one of Malta’s most popular tourist areas, and only a stone’s throw away from the sea front. Close amenities include shops, cafés, restaurants and ferry crossings to and from Valletta, the capital city.

Established in 1988, ECS was one of the first English language schools in Malta and a founding member of FELTOM. We are a boutique operation that provides a personalised learning experience with individual attention lavished on each of our students.

At ECS we offer a bespoke curriculum rather than standard courses, and each week students cover exciting new material depending on their needs

Students benefit from dedicated, experienced teachers, comfortable facilities and modern resources. Sliema’s international feel is mirrored in our great nationality mix. We also offer an exciting socio-cultural programme to help all our students make the most of their time at ECS after school hours.

Additionally we also provide study-work opportunities to further help students focus on their professional path. These include quality work shadowing, internships and vocational experiences. Students can benefit from opportunities with various reputable Maltese companies in more than 60 sectors


ECS is designed with students’ learning at the forefront. The school premises consist of two blocks, with classrooms spread across both buildings. Our students instantly fall in love with the charm of the building that the school is set in.

Classrooms in the main block are all fully air-conditioned. A central courtyard with a mature garden acts as an area where our students love to relax and mingle with their school-mates before lessons or during breaks. Block B is wheelchair accessible and is equipped with a lift and a games room. Free Wi-Fi access is provided to students throughout the premises.

Our facilities include:

  • 18 fully-equipped classrooms
  • Modern teaching equipment, including Interactive Whiteboards
  • Outdoor area where students can socialise and relax
  • Facilities to buy snacks and drinks
  • Free reading book library
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the premises

Academic Philosophy

ECS was established to deliver high quality English courses tailored for international students who require English in order to further their studies or who need industry-specific language practice to develop and progress further in their careers.

Our academic philosophy places the student at the centre of their learning experience. Our lessons are dynamic, interactive, and focused on students’ needs. To maximise learning opportunities, material used is relevant to each course context and lessons provide the practice necessary to build the skills required to thrive successfully outside the classroom, whether it’s for leisure or professional development

We want our students to reach the highest levels of academic excellence. Each student is closely monitored and feedback is an integral part of each course. Progress is mapped regularly and every student can keep track of improvements made over any given period of time

Our Team

ECS is made up of a dedicated team of professionals who are always available to assist students. All team members adopt an open door policy, ensuring a welcoming environment and easy access to assistance when required.

Our academic staff is highly trained and qualified to tailor the lessons according to their students’ level and needs.

All members of our academic department attend regular continuous professional development sessions, which include regular class observations. This ensures that all lessons at ECS are delivered to the highest standards


ECS is licensed by the ELT Council (License number: 289/ELT49) and FELTOM, the Federation of English Language Teaching Organisations. The school is also ISO: 9001 certified, further guaranteeing a high level of customer service and standards across all the school’s services.
