The English Language Academy (ELA) has been established as a school since 1988 and is staffed by a team of qualified, dedicated and experienced teachers who are all native or bilingual speakers of English.

Students are given a workbook and basic handouts according to their level and as prescribed by the Academy. These are complemented with material from the Resource Library of the school. Audio and video material is also used.If students move up a level, they will have to buy a workbook for the new level for the price of €10.00. There are six levels within the courses from Beginner (A1) to Advanced (C2).

ELA offers expert tuition in a number of courses. The level of each participant is carefully assessed before the commencement of the course. Students have to complete a placement test and have an oral interview with our Director of Studies. On completion of the course the participant is awarded a Certificate of Attendance.

The English Language Academy is fully licensed as a school by the Malta Ministry of Education, is an accredited founder member of FELTOM (Federation of English Language Teaching Organisation in Malta).The school prepares students for international examinations such as IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge and TOEIC examinations.

Gzira, modern town with harbour views

 

Gzira is a modern town in the north-east coast of Malta between Sliema and Msida along the promenade of Marsamxett harbour. Gzira has an area of 1.0 km2 and around 7,500 residents. Gzira means,“island” in Maltese and the town derives its name from the Manoel Island situated in the middle of the harbour. Manoel Island was named after the Grandmaster Manuel De Vilhena who built Fort Manoel in 1726. Gzira is popular for its beautiful views of Valletta and Marsamxett Harbour, its yacht marina, seafront and public garden as well as being close to the University of Malta, Sliema and Valletta.

Chevalier Jacob Taliaferro built the first houses in Gzira in the mid-19th century. During that time, Gzira was troubled with prostitution along the main streets and even if today street prostitutes are rare, some people still have a negative view of Gzira.

Many of the old houses in Gzira have been replaced with new and luxurious blocks of flats over the last decade, loosing much of Gzira’s charm and character. However, one can still find a few traditional Maltese houses with the typical small balconies.

 

Gzira: Things to do and see

 

Manoel Island: The Grandmaster of the Knights, Jean Paul Lascaris built aquarantine hospital on Manoel Island in 1634 to prevent the spread of plague and cholera on board of ships visiting Malta. Manoel Island and its fort were used as a naval base by the British during the World War II and were referred to as "HMS Talbot" or "HMS Phœnicia. The chapel that stood inside the fort, The Chapel of St. Anthony, was destroyed German bombs in March 1942. In 2006 the old fort underwent major restoration and renovation work. Today, Manoel Island is an informal sanctuary for ducks and other birds and maintained by local volunteers. It is funded by private donations, the donation box is located near the bridge and donations are much appreciated.

Fort Manoel: It was in 1726 that the Portuguese Grandmaster Antonio Manoel de Vilhena built Fort Manoel that gave the name to the Island. Today, Fort Manoel is seen as a wonder of military engineering of the 18th century. Fort Manoel has a parade ground and arcade and a beautiful courtyard. The fort is currently undergoing major restoration work, to repair the ravages of time, and also damage sustained during the Second World War.

Parish Church: Gzira parish Church is dedicated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Walk along the promenade: This beautiful seaside promenade takes you all the way to Sliema and St. Julian's with spectacular views of Marsamxett Harbour.

My stay in Malta was very nice because it was spring in this country and all was green and happy. The school is situated in Sliema and is quite big which was very nice because I can get to know a lot of students. The teachers taught me all I need. The group was small and from many others countries and this makes it difficult to speak my own language! Even if Malta is very small, I can take part in many interesting things like for example diving and snorkeling. Malta is great!

Our school was very good. Stuff were always ready to help you. But there was problem with ventilation system in our class, it must be improved because it is difficult a little to learn when it is hot in the classroom. My host family was very polite and nice. Location of my flat was near by sea but far from school (20 min on foot), but the place was good. Teachers were also very good and polite and you really enjoy with this studying.

My school is relatively small and all the students know each other. The staff of the school is like our family because they help us while we are in Malta. Some students are here for a short time and others for longer but we still manage to become close friends because of the various activities organized by our school. I want to write something about my teacher, Analisa. She is very nice and very friendly. I like her very much. I would like her to teach me for my whole course. Thank you ELA!

I have been studying English here for 5 weeks and I am really enjoying it. I’ve learnt a lot of new things in a short time. In my free time I go to the beach nearly everyday and am getting a great suntan. I think with ELA in Malta you’ll improve your English in a very relax atmosphere

The highly qualified teachers will make sure you improve your English and you will be entertained by the fantastic parties organized by the excellent staff at school. You will also be delighted with the great weather

I spent 3 weeks in Malta and it was a very good experience. In English Language Academy I met a lot of nice people from all over the world. The atmosphere was good and I also liked the location of the school. The English course was great because we had a lot of conversation but also a lot of grammar. What I also liked was the diving course. The diving course offered by English Language Academy was very professional without forgetting that people were very nice.

When I came to Malta for a year I couldn’t speak a word in English. On the first day I met a lot of people and made some friends. I don’t know how I could understand anything but I remember saying things in English right after my first lesson. I have come a very long way and I am very grateful to the school and particularly to the teachers. I’ve never had a teacher I didn’t like and the staff always does its best to find a solution whenever you have a problem. I’ve had such a lovely experience l
