Why Learn English in Malta?

About Malta

Malta is a small island in the centre of the Mediterranean.  Its position makes it the ideal destination to visit all year round.  Malta boasts a rich history, with stunning temples found around the main islands dating back to 3600 B.C.  Sunny weather all year round means that many visitors can enjoy the outdoors throughout all four seasons.  Malta is an archipelago made up of three islands, namely Malta, Gozo and Comino.  It has a population of about 450,000, while its sister island, Gozo, has only about 40,000 inhabitants. Comino, on the other hand, is renowned for the beautiful crystal clear waters of the Blue Lagoon, which is a very popular swimming destination for tourists and locals alike.  Malta is dotted with stunning architecture from different eras and people visiting the island enjoy walking around our capital city, Valletta and the Medieval city of Mdina. For those who enjoy a busy nightlife, Paceville, St.Julians and Sliema are the ideal tourist areas with streets lined with bars, restaurants, cafes and clubs.  In Malta, one can enjoy local food, as well as other Mediterranean and international cuisine.  Maltese people are renowned for their generosity and kindness and the fact that we are bilingual means tourists feel welcome and at home when visiting.

Living in Malta

Living on a small island like Malta means that everywhere is within reach.  People find it easy to socialise and meet friends and family as they are often only a few minutes away.  Since Malta has such a small population, we have close-knit families who often meet during holidays and festivities as well as on special family occasions.  A big part of our culture is something we call ‘Festa’ – this is a village feast which is celebrated in different localities, normally at the weekend during the summer months.  Each parish church celebrates the feast of the patron saint by decorating the streets, organising parades, band music, setting up stalls selling typical Maltese delicacies, as well as beautiful fireworks.

You might be asking yourself, when should I go to Malta?

Most people like to come during the months of July August and September with more than 50% of all students coming during the peak 3 months.  The good thing about coming during the summer is that it is the hottest time of the year.  The downside is that the Island gets to be a little crowded and prices increase. Spring and Autumn offer good alternatives but come in the winter to take advantage of our lower prices and more individual attention.

How long should I stay?

The average stay for learning English in 2015 was 3.2 weeks.  In truth the average duration is getting longer with many more students coming for longer periods. Malta offers a lower cost of living then other destinations.  Once your course and accommodation fees are paid you can live on circa 75.00 euro per week.

Will I find students of my same age?

am Language studio caters for students of all ages.  By offering both Adult and Teenage courses we offer our services to students as young as 12 right through to senior citizens.

Some additional facts:

The majority of students came from Italy, Germany and Russia. In total these made up 49.7 per cent of total student visits.

The largest number of language students were aged 18 to 25 and totalled 19,613, or 25.3 per cent. Students aged 50 and over were in the minority and numbered 4,250. Female students outnumbered males, and accounted for 58.0 per cent of the entire student population.

July was the busiest month for English language specialised schools, with 17,207 arrivals, or 22.2 per cent of the annual total. In contrast, December recorded the lowest number of arrivals, with less than 1,000 student visits.
