9 good reasons to go to Malta on a language course
Do you want to learn English while enjoying the Mediterranean sun? Malta is the perfect destination! Not only does the archipelago offer a relaxing environment, but it also enriches your social and educational life with the variety of students who come to learn English and experience Maltese culture every year. In this article, you will discover 9 reasons to go on a language study trip to Malta.
1. Combining the useful with the pleasant
Although it is located south of Sicily, Malta is a small island where life is good at any time of the year. Cradled by the sea breeze, the heat is never stifling. It is one of the first destinations to learn English while enjoying your free time through various activities: swimming, diving, boat trips, to name a few.
2. Long summers
What about an 8 month summer? The summer season is very long in Malta. Moreover, it is not uncommon that in the middle of December the sun shines for more than 10 hours, and your thermometer rises to 20 degrees.
3. Very good quality-price ratio
Compared to other countries in the euro zone, life on the archipelago is quite cheap. The value for money has never been so attractive in Malta!
4. Easing of Covid-19 restrictions
Malta’s stated aim since this summer is to lift most of the restrictions caused by COVID, thus allowing tourists and students to visit the island again! In addition, English language schools will be able to offer face-to-face courses again. So, thanks to the new flexible COVID-related security policy that the country applies to tourists, you can enjoy not only the weather, the fantastic food, the idyllic beaches, but also the culture of the island.
5. Everyone speaks English
Learning English while studying in an English-speaking country and building memories with students from all over the world will make learning easier! In addition, the growing expatriate population makes Malta a melting pot. Due to the strong presence of Anglo-Saxon and European communities, English is spoken almost everywhere. The locals almost all speak a slow and clear English: perfect when you come to learn this language!
6. Short distances
With an area of 31 km², your journeys will be very short, which is very convenient for getting to class in the morning. You’ll spend more time enjoying yourself than chasing transport.
7. A fascinating history
This small archipelago has a great history. From Neolithic temples to medieval cities to the Second World War, Malta’s history is rich. Before it became known for hosting the filming of Game of Thrones or before the sun became its main attraction, Malta was primarily valued for its strategic location in the Mediterranean. Indeed, the French, the British, the Romans, the Moors, the Sicilians and the Knights of St. John have all left their mark on the island and Malta’s historic sites are now among the most fascinating in the world.
8. Gozo will be your favourite island
The island of Gozo, much more peaceful than Malta, will soothe you at the end of a busy week. It is the ideal place to rest for an afternoon or to work in complete serenity.
9. A range of educational options
As a former British colony, Malta has a number of schools where you can study English. Throughout the year, people of all ages from all over the world go there to learn English.
As you have noticed, Malta is an ideal destination for studying and enjoying a good quality of life. Interested in studying in Malta? Contact us, we will be happy to provide you with more information or check our list of schools in Malta.
