Maltese for Foreigners is a bilingual (Maltese/English) book series based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It consists of three levels:

Level B1 (Medical Maltese) includes three books specifically designed to teach Medical Maltese named: Medical Maltese Words & Phrases, Speaking Medical Maltese 1, Speaking Medical Maltese 2.
The book series is complemented with a CD or a USB containing the audio files linked to the books so learners can listen to native Maltese speakers reading the text and dialogues. In addition it also has a syllabus for each level based on the CEFR which can be downloaded for free.
The bilingual series is based on a needs analysis, which Charles Daniel Saliba (PhD) has conducted with foreigners learning Maltese and instructors teaching Maltese to foreigners. He published his research, ‘Teaching Maltese as a second language to adults,’ as a chapter in Informing Educational Change: Research Voices from Malta, edited by D. Hyatt, P. Clough and C. Nutbrown. The book was published by the University of Sheffield.
The three books in the A1 level of this series are available in Italian-Maltese versions: Le mie prime 750 parole in Maltese, Grammatica Maltese essenziale e contestuale 1 and Parlo Maltese 1.
