At our partner school in St. Paul's Bay, teaching is based on communication and offers students the tools which allow them to freely express themselves in everyday situations. The motivated and qualified teachers benefit from several years' experience in the teaching of English as a foreign language. The course centre is located near the central bus line, close to the town hall, a post office and banks. As a bonus, there are numerous shops in the surroundings and the seafront is only a stone's throw away. Besides the 15 spacious and bright classrooms, the school has several common areas with computer stations with internet access so you can stay in touch with your friends and family. A break room is at your disposal for studying in peace and quiet or for relaxing in the company of the other students. For a bite to eat, there are vending machines available to you.

Die Schule sowie die Insel macht einen guten Eindruck, jedoch sind die Unterkünfte bzw. die Appartements von der Schule in einem miserablen Zustand. Die Reinigung ist sehr mangelhaft, was aus meiner Sicht ein absolutes NO GO ist. Trotz mehrmaligen Kontaktaufnahme, ist man nicht zu einer guten Lösung gekommen. --> daher nie wieder!
