Want to learn English in Europe and enjoy almost guaranteed sunshine? Want to explore gorgeous Mediterranean islands with a truly unique history crammed into just 316 sq km? Malta awaits.
Five honey coloured rocks rising out of the turquoise Mediterranean sea, Malta, Gozo, Comino, Cominotto and Filfla sit around 100km south of Sicily. The English connection comes, as with so much of the English speaking world, from British empire-building in the nineteenth century. The Brits left in 1964, when Malta gained independence, but the language stayed.
Malta’s history can be traced for thousands of years before the English arrived. When UNESCO gave Valletta World Heritage status, they called it “one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world” because of its unique Greek, Roman, Arabic and European past. The history of welcoming people continues to this day. In the busy bars and nightclubs of St Julians, you will meet people from all over Europe and the world, letting their hair down in the sunshine. There’s a serious party vibe that Mediterranean islands stimulate!
You will not be short of activities for your free time in Malta. Enjoy some of the finest diving conditions in Europe in gorgeous, peaceful Gozo, explore the quirky, distinctive charm of Sliema’s bustling streets or simply soak up the rays on any of the stunning beaches that ring the islands. Learn English in Malta, where the good times come as you want them.
