Malta’s ELT Council was proud to organise the 5th annual ELT Conference in Valletta and to host the Image Conference, which has previously been held in Barcelona, Brasilia, Cordoba and Munich. With international speakers including the likes of Paul Girder, Kieran Donaghy, Antonia Claire, Marjorie Rosenberg and Scott Thornbury to name a few, the conference was also the stage for many local talents and was enthusiastically received by all who attended.
IH MG’s Director and Assistant Director of Studies, Lisa Phillips and Kate Kazanovska, presented on visual literacy and learner autonomy. The conference might best be summed up by Kate’s comment, “Create, share, inspire”.

In November 2015 Riga private school ‘Maksima’ – our friends in Latvia – organised an annual open English language olympiad for secondary school students. The participants had to show their language proficiency in writing, speaking, and also solve puzzles and do some creative tasks.
In order to support this initiative, IH Malta decided to offer the organisers 10 vouchers for our summer school, worth between 300 and 500 euros.
The olympiad was a blast with lots of creative ideas, interesting presentations, and even a small teachers’ conference.
Now we are looking forward to seeing the participants in our summer school in Paradise Bay!
It is hard to overestimate the significance of the English language nowadays. It is the most widespread language in the world spoken by people on six continents. English is the language of business, trade, sports, science, fashion, architecture and information technologies.
International conferences, meetings and different sports events are all conducted in the English language, so you might say that in order to succeed in the contemporary world you should have a good command of the English language otherwise you simply will not be understood.
People choose different ways for studying English in Malta. Some people prefer traditional forms of studying like different courses, one-to-one classes with a tutor while others enjoy all the benefits of innovative methods of studying like Skype lessons, or online classes. Of course, all these methods have advantages and disadvantages so when choosing a particular method it is necessary to take into account the purpose of study. If the person’s objective is just to communicate with other people, then Skype lessons can help to cope with this task. The obvious benefit of this way of studying is that you do not need to leave home and go somewhere. So you save a lot of time! You are taught at home, while sitting at the computer. All you need is access to the internet.
However one of the most popular methods of studying a language is still enrolling English courses. The advantage of this method is that while attending the courses you study all components – listening, reading, writing, speaking, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. Besides now there are a lot of tailor-made courses, which cater for specific target audience. It means, for example, if you need English to do business, the course will be designed to suit your needs.
There are a lot of possibilities to master the English language and to join the world English community where the knowledge of English will give you an opportunity to feel at home in any place on the planet.
