Malta is made up of a group of islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. The island of Gozo is home to the Ggantija temple, the world’s oldest freestanding structure. Because of its strategic location, Malta has been occupied by the Phoenicians, Arabs, Romans, the Knights of St. John, the French and the British, all of whom have left their mark on the islands.
Malta became a British colony in 1814 and went on to achieve independence in 1964. Mediterranean culture is dominant in Malta, but 150 years of British rule left their mark. English is still an official language, the Maltese drive on the left side of the road and enjoy a nice English breakfast. The most popular daily newspaper is the Malta Times which is published in English.
Malta has something for everyone: Mediterranean climate, crystal-clear waters, an abundance of history, pretty villages, colorful feasts and celebrations. Malta also offers wonderful cafes and restaurants, a lively nightlife, a wide range of shops and, of course, English classes.
St Paul’s Bay was once a small fisherman’s village; today it’s the most beautiful seaside resort town in Malta, with an enjoyable promenade alongside the beach. The temperature is ideal all year long and there are numerous aquatic activities available nearby.

Outside of class, there are counselors who assure that the programme runs smoothly 24/7. They are in charge of waking the students up in the morning, supervising activities and looking after the students at night.
Courses are taught by qualified and experienced teachers and are based on four key points of language instruction: reading, writing, conversation and oral comprehension.

The programme includes 20 lessons (45 minutes each for a total of 15 hours) per week .
Classes take place in the morning, with a mid-morning break to assure that the students can concentrate throughout their courses. All academic materials are included and distributed on ht first day of class. Classes are international and made up of no more than 15 students per class, assuring the oral participation of each student. Students receive a certificate on the last day of the programme, showing their level and the progress that they made.
