English Language Academy was established as a language
school in Sliema in 1988. We have tried to
keep our school small so we can offer a really friendly
atmosphere and personal service. The school is staffed by a team of
qualified, dedicated and experienced teachers who are native
or bilingual speakers of English. ELA is an official TOEFL iBT Examination Centre.
The English Language
Academy is in Sliema,
which is a lively town in the heart of Malta a short ferry
ride from the capital of Malta, Valletta. Click here for a small map
or here for a larger map of Sliema or here for a
full map of Sliema. Every classroom is air-conditioned and we have a free Internet
Cafe with 2 computers and we offer free WiFi. The school is 2 minutes from what is
known as the Ferries, where you can go by ferry to Valletta.
The sea front is 5 minutes away, as well as a beautiful
promenade. The famous Malta sandy beaches are about 40 minutes
away by bus. On the first day of your course after lessons we offer a free guided tour of Sliema.
Direct Communicative Technique methods are used in all our classes. These are currently considered the most effective systems
of expanding the students' knowledge of vocabulary, structures and idioms. Using only the English language, the teachers encourage the students
to practise the language. Their interest is stimulated through new situations and alternative ways of expression. Our English courses cater for
both fluency and accuracy. The English Language Academy is also one of the few teacher training centres in Malta.
