The Centre for English Language Proficiency (CELP) conducts research on English language use and proficiency, as well as on a variety of topics in TESOL. CELP is currently engaged in various research projects:

Corpus of Learner English in Malta (CLEM) – this project’s focus is to build a corpus of leaner English, which will support research connected with areas such as SLA, bilingualism, textual analysis and more.

CELP is responsible for co-ordinating the University’s English Communicative Aptitude programme and the Needs Analysis Exercise (NAE) that determines which students are eligible for the programme. CELP is currently collecting data through both the ECA programme and NAE in order to develop a better understanding of University students’ English language proficiency.

TELT corpus – this project focuses on building a corpus of written and spoken data collected from the Test for English Language Teachers (TELT) examination. Funded by the ELT Council, this project aims to investigate the language used by pre-service teachers. Part of the ELT Council’s remit is to enhance language awareness in the ELT industry in Malta.

CELP was commissioned to design and run the Spoken English Proficiency Test for Teachers (SEPTT). The research that is being conducted on SEPTT consists of an investigation into the impact and washback of the test on the ELT industry at large, on school management, on teacher trainers, on pre-service teachers, and on teaching and learning. The long-term plan is to analyse the speech data collected from each examination session with a view to comparing the teacher discourse used in SEPTT with authentic classroom discourse.
