Malta is a charming island in the heart of the Mediterranean. It attracts visitors seeking crystal clear waters and a laid-back lifestyle. It is also the perfect place to take an English course, as English is widely spoken by locals and is one of two official languages.
Visiting Malta is a great way to improve your English language fluency as you will use English every day. Everyone here speaks English- even outside of the classroom, so you will have plenty of time to build vocabulary and language skills with the locals.
After school you may want to visit the capital city Valletta the European Capital of Culture 2018, or take a local ferry to Birgu and the Three Cities to the south of the island.
The island is small and has a reliable local bus service, so it is easy to get around. Malta also has wonderful scenery and if you just want to relax after your English course you can visit one of the many beaches to the North of the island, such as Mellieha Bay or Golden Bay and simply soak up the sun.
Over the weekend, if you have some more free time, you can choose to catch a ferry over to one of the neighbouring islands, Comino or Gozo. This is a longer trip and will take a full day.
Our centre regularly arranges activities and cultural tours for students in the afternoon, visiting historical sites such as the ancient city of Mdina, Marsaxlokk fishing village or even scuba diving, trekking and horse riding!
Activities can all be booked at our offices on arrival, just speak to one of our friendly administration team on the first day of your course or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
In the summer months you can unwind in the crystal clear waters that surround the island. The local beach at St George’s Bay is the closest to the school, just five minutes walk away, but if you prefer to be more independent you can also choose to hire a car and visit all the top sites further afield.
Our friendly administration team will be able to offer you their support and advice should you wish to top up your activity package.
Malta enjoys year-round sunshine, lots of culture and a relaxed pace of life. The country has a developed infrastructure with modern shops, a great night-life, charming fishing villages and plenty of cultural heritage sites to visit as well.
Our islands are packed full of history and culture!
Every year many International students choose Malta as their language travel destination – we look forward to welcoming you to our islands and our school!
