Three young students and a teacher

Language stay in Malta for teenagers (Salina)

Presentation of ESE Malta School

Our partner school, the European School of English (ESE Malta), is the ideal school for language stays in Malta for young people and teenagers. The school offers a secure environment, that of the Salini Resort, where young minor students aged 9 to 17 years are accommodated. The courses also have the advantage of being given directly within the Salini Resort, limiting travel for students who have opted for residence accommodation.

To facilitate the integration of young students, the language stay program for teenagers is divided into two. The Teen Club program, which is intended for young people aged 14 to 17, and the Junior Club program for young people aged 9 to 13.

English Courses

English courses for young people in language stays are available in two formats: general English, commonly called GE20 (15 hours of lessons per week), and intensive English, commonly called GE30 (22.5 hours of lessons per week). The courses are taught in small groups, with a maximum of 15 students per class.

The teaching method is dynamic and interactive, with a lot of oral exercises. A method that allows young students to work on the fundamentals of the language in a fun way and to quickly progress in English, regardless of their initial level.

Administrative Documents for Traveling to Malta

To enroll your child in a language stay, a simple copy of your child’s identity document is required. You will also need to complete a “Parental Consent Form,” which will be provided by our team. This document allows us to know your child’s medical contraindications and the medical instructions to follow in case of problems during the stay.

To travel to Malta, your child will need: a valid identity document (identity card or passport), a signed exit permit from the territory (AST) by one of the parents with parental authority, and a photocopy of a valid identity document of the signing parent.
