ENGLISH COURSES at EC English language schools are designed to help you learn English as quickly and effectively as possible
Origins of EC
EC forms part of an organisation which was established in 1905. Over a century in education and English language learning has given us a quality edge. The history of EC can be traced back to the good intentions of two women: Miss. Ethel Yabsley and Miss. Madeline Sceberras, who opened a small school for the children of British naval officers stationed in Malta at the start of the twentieth century.
In 1991 EC Malta was established to build on Malta’s growing popularity as an English learning destination. The school quickly became a success.
The last twelve years have seen a period of steady growth in EC. We have become a leader in English language learning in Malta in terms of not only quality English lessons, but by providing students with varied accommodation options and social activities. EC is proud to have lead the field in modern teaching methods and innovation in English courses. It was EC Malta who successfully pioneered the Club 50+ programme and Junior Summer Camps.
In 2002 we acquired our first overseas school which was re-branded as EC Brighton and seamlessly integrated into the company. EC had announced itself on the world stage and our next overseas school, EC London, established us as a strong player in the world of English language schools.
Looking forward, we ventured outside the UK in 2006 with the acquisition of EC Cape Town in South Africa. It is now one of the top schools in the city.
In 2007 we began our focus on establishing a strong network of American schools, firstly, with EC Boston and then EC San Diego in early 2008.
What we Believe
At EC, we put a lot of emphasis on quality. Quality programmes aimed at improving students’ English. Whether you learn English for school, university or English in the workplace, ultimately we are talking about the most important international language today.
Our students value the quality of our organisation. EC welcomes thousands of students every year from more than sixty countries on all continents to study English. Our schools are centrally located to allow easy access to all or English language students.
For us, one of the most important elements of your experience with EC is our staff. Our teachers, administration and social leaders are there to ensure that you reach your English learning goal in a caring environment.
In our seven centres we have accumulated a combined total of over 150 years of English language teaching experience and each new EC school helps us to enrich ourselves, making us more diverse, and adding to our strengths as a whole.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our centres and helping you achieve your English language goal.
