Malta is a spectacular island located in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean and is the perfect place to study English all year round. Its Mediterranean climate, gorgeous bays and tranquil villages make it a haven of serenity. If you're looking for something more active, Malta also boasts a rich and lengthy history, bars, shops and restaurants galore and buzzing nightlife.
English is one of the two official languages on the island, stemming from two centuries of British rule. Malta's most-read paper is the English-language Malta Times, and the Maltese drive on the left. If you're looking for sea, sand and sun as well as top-notch English lessons, Malta is the place for you!
