One of the longest established schools on the island, our partner school guarantees great quality English classes especially designed for foreign language learners. Classes are held in Swatar for most of the summer and in St Julian's or a residential area near St Julian's at the start of the camp (the first week). In a small group made up of international students, you'll study English in air-conditioned, bright and comfortable classrooms. Every week, before or after classes, the school organises sports, recreational and cultural activities and one full-day excursion. To help you make the most of your stay in Malta, the school staff will be there to assist you throughout your stay.

Testimonials

Johana Deschanet et Maeva Serbin
Johana Deschanet et Maeva Serbin

We had a two week stay in Malta and the time went much too quickly. We had the chance to learn English in an idyllic environment, with courses that mixed a good atmosphere with enriching learning. We were looked after by the cosmopolitan team members who were responsible and funny at the same time and we felt very well from the first day here. We benefitted from the various nationalities present, enjoyed the great freedom – even when well supervised – and we had lots of autonomy. The highly varied activities gave us the opportunity to discover new things and have international experiences. This holiday will remain in our memories forever. We would like to repeat the experience as soon as possible!

Qawra Palace Hotel residence
Located a few minutes from lively St Paul's Bay and the village of Bugibba, this residence faces the Mediterranean and beautiful Salina Bay. Each student shares a bedroom with 3 other students of the same gender. All of the bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning, a TV and telephone. Bed linen and bath towels are provided, but students must bring their own beach towels. The stay includes full board, consisting of a continental breakfast, a hot meal at the school (on weekdays) and a hearty evening meal in the form of a buffet. Students have access to the indoor and outdoor swimming pools as long as they are supervised. At weekends, a cold packed lunch is provided. Our ESL Group Leaders also stay on-site and are there for students if needed.

Host family
Experience the authentic Maltese lifestyle by living with a host family during your summer in Malta! You’ll stay in a twin or triple room with a shared bathroom, bed linen and towels (bring your own beach towel) and storage space. Students may do laundry once a week. Full board is provided, so you can get to know your host family during breakfast and dinner time, while you’ll have lunch at the school with your fellow students. The majority of host families are located in the quiet towns and countryside surrounding the school.

Private bus service
The bus will come and pick you up every morning at a designated bus stop near your homestay or the residence and will drive you to the school or to the place where the activity takes place. All transportation is organised for you throughout the day, until the evening when you will be driven back to your homestay or residence.

During the activities, the group leaders will bring you to visit Malta. The island's Mediterranean climate guarantees you numerous and splendid seaside activities. You will be brought to fine sand beaches and a full day will be dedicated to an excursion, to the Blue Lagoon, for example. At "Malta Experience", you will see a multivisual display which will teach you things you didn't know before about the 6000 years of the fabulous history of this island. And you will still have free time left over to go shopping, go swimming, go sunbathing, or quite simply relax beside the swimming pool. At nightfall, a very dynamic nightlife begins. The school organises evening activities on the beach where you will be able to play volleyball, football or even enjoy a barbecue. The school will also offer large outdoor parties or discos (supervised by the school's staff) so that you can dance and have fun with the other students.
