For people who want to spend their holiday exploring a new culture, discovering beautiful architecture and historical landmarks or simply enjoying some sun, sea and sand, Malta is the perfect destination. Couple this with the fact that the bilingual island group is home to numerous high quality English schools and this makes combining your holiday with learning English an attractive option.
Its location in the Mediterranean Sea means that the climate is extremely mild all year round, providing the perfect backdrop to explore the beautiful architecture of the old towns and cities on the island. A stroll around the streets of the capital, Valletta, reveals a historical point of interest at every turn, demonstrating why the city was voted Capital of Culture for 2018.
Take In The Sights Of Malta
The sun seekers will not be disappointed as a visit to one of the island’s beautiful beaches is a perfect way to make the most of the Mediterranean climate. Whether you prefer the lively tourist spots with cafes, bars and restaurants to give you a break from the sun or you’re happier in a more secluded bay away from the hustle and bustle of a busy resort, Malta has the beach for you.
You also have ample opportunity to try out some watersports as the busier beaches offer a number of options including wind-surfing, sea kayaking, jet-ski hire, water-skiing, wakeboarding or even paragliding! The crystal-clear waters surrounding the island however are perhaps best discovered close up – scuba diving is huge in Malta and whatever your level, you can get up close and personal with some beautiful marine life, stunning reefs and the more advanced divers can explore the island’s wrecks.
Take An English Language Course
English is widely spoken among tourists and, as a former British colony and therefore bilingual country, there are plenty of opportunities to practise your English skills with the locals. Malta is therefore the ideal location for an English course and the high number of language schools on offer coupled with the government organisation FELTOM, which oversees professional standards in all language schools, ensures that the quality of teaching remains high. Language learners from all over the world come to Malta to enjoy all the island has to offer holiday makers as well as to learn English and make new friends. Maltalingua English Language School is the ideal institution for all of this as the high standard of training is combined with a friendly, international atmosphere where students are encouraged to mix by the private pool or join one of the excursions on offer, all the while meeting new people and practising the newly acquired language skills.
The school has recently been renovated so classrooms are modern and air conditioned and teachers are friendly. English courses at Maltalingua are competitively priced and they will even pick you up from the airport and take you to your accommodation if necessary. With budget airlines like Air Malta and Ryanair operating from London Stansted and a beautiful, culturally rich and historically interesting island waiting for you in the Mediterranean Sea, it’s time to learn English in Malta.more blog posts
