That is entirely up to you. If you prefer a group environment then choose a Holiday English course or a Mini – Group. Both these courses cover general English topics relevant to everyday life. You can also choose a group course for business English or an exam preparation course leading up to a Cambridge exam such as IELTS, FCE, CAE etc.
If you want an intensive course, choose One to One lessons where your trainer designs the lessons around your individual needs and requirements.
After booking your course you can take our online placement test at www.inlingua-mct.com and we will send you the results with information about your level and the class you will be allocated when you arrive.
Alternatively, you can also take the placement test on your first day of school.
Group courses start every Monday all year round but you can also join a course mid week if necessary. One to One courses can start any day at your convenience.
The minimum duration of an English course is one week. We recommend that all courses be followed for approximately 3 weeks to gain confidence and knowledge in the English language but of course, the longer you study, the more you will learn.
At the end of your English course we will give you an inlingua certificate which states the type of course you followed and the duration as well as the level of English you have achieved.
You can choose from various options when you book a course with inlingua. We offer budget accommodation in our school residence, host families, hostels and hotels which range from basic to luxurious. For more about our accommodation options

Full details of visa requirements and the latest information, can be found on the website of the Malta Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Nationals of some states can visit Malta for up to 90 days without a visa. Should these third party nationals want to stay longer than 90 days, they must contact the Department of Citizenship and Expatriate Affairs to apply for a long stay permit for a period of up to one year, or for the remaining duration of their course.
Third party nationals requiring a visa to enter Malta must apply for a “C” type (short-stay) Schengen visa at Malta’s diplomatic missions and consular posts in their region. Where Malta has no diplomatic mission or consular post, third-country nationals may apply for a ‘C’ type Schengen visa at the embassies or consulates of either Austria, Italy or Spain with whom Malta has Representation Agreements. Applications for long stay ‘fixed term’ residence permits may only be made at Malta’s diplomatic missions.
