Founded in 1963, NSTS was the first English Language School to operate in Malta. NSTS is also a founding member of the Federation of English Language Teaching Organizations (FELTOM) set up in 1989 to promote quality standards nationally. NSTS established the codes of conduct for good practices and led FELTOM to becoming internationally recognized as the quality overseer for Maltese English Language Teaching Schools.Welcome to the NSTS English Language Institute and congratulations on joining the tens of thousands of learners who have followed English language programmes at our Institute over the past 50 years.
NSTS is known internationally for its leadership in English language teaching and ongoing development in learner-centred communicative methodology. We are committed to offering high quality education that meets both personal and professional needs. Our holistic teaching philosophy maintains focus on the learner as an individual. Join our courses for an effective and long-lasting learning experience.
Apart from excellent tuition, you will also receive the best personal support throughout your stay with us. After being welcomed on day one, you will complete a Placement Test so that we can assess your level of English. Individual learners also benefit from a specially-designed ‘needs analysis’, which identifies linguistic and professional needs and allows our academic team to plan and provide a custom-made course of studies.
NSTS believes in the best personal experience and outcome for every student, facilitated by experienced and highly-qualified teachers. NSTS uses the latest teaching techniques to help students reach their full potential. Learning English through different media and materials provides a dynamic, interactive experience.
The NSTS English Language Institute offers courses at all tuition levels, whether you are a beginner or already proficient and seeking to improve your skills. NSTS courses are based on the six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages of the Council of Europe.
Progress will be monitored by our teaching staff throughout your stay. Through constant, focused individual attention and professional advice, you will be encouraged to exploit the full potential of your NSTS experience.
At the end of each programme, NSTS awards an English Language Institute Certificate, detailing the training programme undertaken and the level of proficiency achieved. The Certificate can be used for academic and professional profiles.
NSTS places utmost importance on education through enjoyment of life. Many of our students repeatedly recommend our language school to family members, colleagues and friends for academic integrity, multicultural diversity and our programme of English-speaking social and cultural activities. We invite you to discover more about us and the ways we can offer you a unique and unforgettable learning and living ‘Malta English’ experience.
