35 years of providing quality and excellence in the ELT industry.
inlingua Malta was founded in 1980 and was a pioneer in offering English Language Courses as a foreign language. Based in a prime location, in the heart of Sliema, it started out with 6 classrooms offering a range of courses and packages for both individuals and groups. Today inlingua Malta has grown to a staggering 7 floor building with 44 air-conditioned classrooms, a library, a language computer lab, 2 meeting halls, classrooms with interactive whiteboard facilities and a spacious and plush reception ensuring the comfort and needs to all their students.
One teacher who has been with inlingua Malta from the beginning recounts a funny story of many moons ago in the 1980s:
“A memory which makes me smile is that of a Monday in August, when a huge number of students were expected and a few teachers were recruited to help correct tests. We were there bright and early and soon were busy placing students in the various classrooms and giving them the tests. Since all the rooms were taken, we used the space on the window sills in the corridor to correct the tests on.
Everything was going well and then disaster struck! A teacher ,who shall remain nameless, brought a pile of finished tests to be corrected. He put them on the windowsill, turned around, and with his elbow accidentally pushed them out of the window! They landed in an abandoned yard far below, completely out of reach! We were so shocked that for a moment we were speechless! And the poor guy was nearly in tears! The hardest part for him was walking back to the classroom and asking the students to do the test …..AGAIN!!”
Forming part of one of the world’s largest language organisation, inlingua offers the ‘inlingua method’ a unified teaching method that also consists of having the same learning material utilized in all the 322 inlingua centres around the world. This facilitates the possibility of a student progressing their English learning voyage anywhere around the globe.
This year inlingua Malta has once again proven to be a trendsetter in the industry by being the first Language school to achieve two ISO certifications in Quality Management (ISO 9001 & ISO 29990) by the International Organisation of Standards. ISO 29990 is a standard focusing on the provisions of Educational services, thus inlingua ensures a quality product and a fulfilling language learning experience.
We are proud to state that we are a family owned language school and every student that has joined this family for the last 35 years has always given positive feedback, we pride ourselves with having repeat students who visit the island not only a second time but also a 5th, 6th and 7th time, not to mention the group leaders from all over Europe who year after year bring groups of students and professional individuals to learn and have fun together.
