Jag hamnade i Advanced men mer än hälften av eleverna kunde inte föra en vanlig konversation på engelska. Grammatiken höll måttet Advanced men inte eftermiddagarnas tallektioner. Bra stenciler för grammatiken men att köra viskningsleken på tallektionen känns inte så proffsigt tyckte jag.

Yasmina Alishia Pouassom
IELS LAL Language Centre, Sliema
Duration: 3 weeks

My stay in Malta was wonderful! It’s incredible, I made a lot of progress in only 3 weeks. I reached the goal I had set and I am very happy to have made this language stay with ESL. The trip was organized in an optimal way and the people in Malta were all very nice. The teachers were all very much committed and motivated and they offered very attractive classes. The school organized so many things, like cinema nights, guided tours through the towns and much more. The staff members are all very friendly and are dedicated to answering to questions and to solve the students little problems. My host family could not have been better! All its members were very nice and always answered my questions. The trip and the stay in Malta were very well organized and I can only recommend such an experience to all!

I needed a good reason to learn a new language. My daughter-in-law is Norwegian, so her family and I can only communicate in English. I feel that, to improve a language, there is only one way: full immersion. I wanted to make my stay interesting from a cultural and historical perspective.

Malta was my destination last year. Upon arrival, I was welcomed at the airport and taken to my host family by taxi. IELS is in the centre of Sliema, and I spent a pleasant week there; I was warmly welcomed by the caring staff and lots of activities were organised. Teachers are nice and helpful. I was happy to see that I was not the only one trying this kind of holiday; it was very reassuring. And I was not the only one who had decided to go back to English classes, even though I am not 20 anymore. It’s comforting, at 50 years old! I met Brazilians, Austrians, Germans…

I decided to repeat the experience, but not alone; this year I chose Manchester, and a great communication partner, Margaux. Thank you everyone!!

Host family
The Maltese are known for their hospitality and, through the ages, have welcomed people of all nationalities onto their island and into their homes. Our partner school has carefully selected the Maltese families who host students. As each person is unique, the school does its best to match their requests, taking into consideration their interests, age and individual preferences. Students will have the opportunity to practise the English they've learned in class with the family and to experience the Maltese way of life. Students receive half-board (breakfast and dinner). The host families, who live in various towns in Malta, are located up to 30 minutes by bus from school.
