Our mission is to provide the highest standard of education services in teaching English to non-native speakers, using the most innovative and effective methods and incorporating the best technological tools while providing our students with a holistic experience of the language and of our country through active engagement in activities related to history, culture, cuisine, adventure, and interaction with the local community.
Always innovating! New courses....new skills....new learning....!
Committed to excellence in English language instruction, we strive to exceed our students’ expectations.
Established in 1991, Alpha School of English offers an extensive range of innovative English language courses to students of all ages. Licensed by the ELT Council, accredited by FELTOM and an approved LanguageCert Test Centre, all our students have the opportunity to take an internationally recognised exam at the end of their course.
Our extensive range of English and professional training courses are run by an international team of dedicated and highly qualified English teachers & trainers who are also native speakers of the English language. We pride ourselves on our friendly “can-do” attitude. We specialise in customising our courses to suit each individual student and group. Using the latest high-quality teaching resources, we offer courses which are hands-on and challenging, with the focus on “real-life English.”
Conveniently located in St Paul’s Bay, a traditional fishing village which is also a popular family resort, the school is also just a short distance away from Malta’s main sandy beaches and places of interest. The relaxed Mediterranean environment in St Paul’s Bay complements the friendly and helpful atmosphere at Alpha School of English. Our classes are small, so individual attention is guaranteed.
In 2020 we developed Alpha eCentre and now offer students the choice to take all our courses online. Our dedicated eCentre offers General & ESP online courses to groups and individuals.
We aim to retain only the best teachers that our students consistently rate highly. This makes our courses more rewarding for all students of all levels.
Most of our teachers are far more qualified than required by law. This ensures they can bring the highest quality of teaching to all classes.
Every student completing a course of English is presented with one of our school certificates stating the course you attended and the leaving level of English as assessed by your teacher.
If you need a formal assessment of your English level then we are a recognised English examination centre for LangCert allowing you to take exams online or at our school that can be used for university, immigration and other government purposes.
We are a FELTOM accredited school. This means that we have to meet a stringent set of quality criteria to be members. This is more than the legal requirement and we choose to work hard to achieve the required accreditation standard in order to differentiate ourselves from other schools and to ensure our students can feel confident when choosing us.
We are an ELT recognised school. This is the main legal requirement for a language school in Malta. This primarily means our teaching process is scrutinised every year to ensure that it meets national standards and these standards are raised every year meaning that we continue to grow from strength to strength every year.
We are first and foremost a family friendly school with courses and a timetable to suit all ages and study requirements of students. This means parent can bring their children and everyone study at their own ideal level.
The students that attend long term for 3 -12 months make incredible progress with our personalised teaching methods. We take great satisfaction when a student starts with us struggling to construct sentences and they leave holding full conversations and a recognised English qualification!
Many of our teachers come from experienced and business backgrounds so our business and professional training courses help improve the confidence and skill level of professionals.
By far our most popular course is the General English course that is taught at 5 different levels and 4 different age groups to ensure each student comes away from our courses better skilled!
For private students we have One-to-One lessons and home tuition type courses. Jut you and a teacher. Pure focus and pure progress!
One of the only schools in Malta with a dedication to very young children from age 2 years upwards. Our two dedicated classrooms for the youngest students and highly experienced teachers make young learning fun. When children leave our classes able to talk and sing in English. We know our job was well done!
