ELT Council CEO Sue Falzon said that the English Language Teaching sector was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic as schools were forced to close for months. However, “what does not break you, can only make you stronger,” she remarked as she confirmed that “the industry is back in business and Malta can reclaim its place as a centre of excellence in a highly competitive sector.”

“In this case we can also say that we have acquired invaluable skills in future-proofing the industry,” Ms Falzon added, stating that it was only thanks to the “resilience and collective sense of responsibility of all those involved” that the industry managed to survive.

Speaking of the relevance of the ELT sector to the tourism spectrum in Malta, the CEO remarked that “not only do language schools contribute directly to the economy thanks to the industry’s multiplier effect, but students also take with them memories of their stay in Malta which they share with friends and relatives in all corners of the world.”

“Let’s never lose sight of present and future challenges for which we must remain prepared,” Ms Falzon concluded, “but let’s also celebrate what we have achieved together.”
