Global English language group, EC English Language Centres, is expanding its 30+ offering worldwide, answering growing demand for adult language learning with new schools in New York, Toronto and Malta.
Malta is aiming to attract more foreign universities to the island, its Education Minister has said, amidst concern about new legislation changing the requirements institutions must fulfill to become a university.
The Institute of English Language Studies Malta, one of the largest English language schools in Malta and Gozo, recently celebrated its 30th anniversary with a party and international familiarisation trip.
Traditionally a market for short-term junior courses, Malta's English school sector is aiming to attract longer-term, mature students. The country’s ELT representative body, the Federation of English Language Teaching Organisation, expects 2014 figures to show more growth after strong increases in 2013.
Chief Executive at English UK, Eddie Byers, has stated that the UK's ELT sector needs to work harder to make the government understand it is a "key feed" into the HE sector. And English Australia's Sue Blundell wowed ALTO delegates with data illustrating Australia's growth and grasp of stats.
