They say travel broadens the mind and this is certainly true on a trip to Malta where you can combine a fascinating cultural experience with an English course in the sun.
Due to its location in the Mediterranean Sea, Malta boasts a pleasant climate all year round and summer temperatures consistently over 30 degrees. This provides a perfect backdrop for a great number of sporting and cultural activities to be discovered. Perhaps unsurprisingly for an island, watersports are in abundance; several of the islands’ beautiful beaches offer the chance to go water-skiing or windsurfing and the crystal-clear waters are ideal for scuba-divers to explore wrecks, reefs and marine life. Malta is also one of the top-ten surf spots in Europe and boards and wet-suits are readily available to hire.
As a former British colony, Malta is a bilingual country where English is widely spoken. This has attracted several language schools to the island ensuring that teaching standards are consistently high. English language schools here are extremely popular due, not only to the quality of teaching – all trainers are native speakers with a certification to teach English as a foreign language – but also for prices; their courses are competitively priced so learners can be assured of value for money. Schools boast a friendly atmosphere with staff and students mixing by the private pool or roof-top terrace after classes.
The international environment also enables learners to meet new people and practise their English in a relaxed setting. There is an extensive range of courses to suit individual needs and free time can be spent exploring Malta individually or taking part in one of the school’s activities, designed to give learners an insight into historical, cultural or fun aspects of the island together with fellow students. So a trip to Malta can be greatly enhanced by an English course, broaden your mind in Malta!
