Welcome to the Centre for English Language Proficiency
The Centre for English Language Proficiency (CELP) was established as an institution of the University of Malta in September 2012 to promote English language proficiency among University students, conduct research in related areas, and assist in language policy implementation with special reference to English. CELP also offers an international M.A. in TESOL.
As millions of students around the world respond to the realisation that English plays a crucial role in achieving personal and professional success, they are investing in their education by making English a priority in their lives. Nationally, CELP serves as a pillar of support for University students and aims to raise awareness that English fluency is an important part of personal and professional development, affecting both their studies and future employability. Acting as a foundation to education and economic prosperity, English has a distinct role in our society; it is part of our identity but also our passport to the rest of the world.
Functioning within a remit of service and support, CELP engages directly with all University Faculties, Institutes and Centres, providing consultation, tuition, and evaluation. Students participating in CELP’s study-units and activities become more aware of quality standards in writing and oral presentation. They are guided and instructed on how to develop ways to monitor and edit their writing and how to become autonomous learners. Their confidence in writing and presenting in English will increase through enhanced exposure and tuition.
