The beautiful island of Malta, located in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, is an ideal place for studying English if you like sunshine, swimming and meeting new people.

All year round, students from all over the world travel to Malta to study English and enjoy the great holiday atmosphere. Malta has something for everyone: Mediterranean climate, crystal clear sea, wonderful cafés and shops, exciting nightlife with parties and discos organized especially for international students.

Malta is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is located about 100 km south of Sicily and 300 km north of Tunisia. It is a member of the European Union and Maltese and English are the two official languages. The capital is Valletta and the currency is Euro.

There are three islands altogether, Malta – the biggest – is the centre of government, business and tourism. Gozo – the second biggest island – is more rural with fishing and agriculture being the main activities, but still a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main island. The smallest island is Comino which is uninhabited.

Malta is a very historical island going back to 7000 years. It has many ancient temples, some of which are the oldest in Europe. You can also see the influence of both the Greek and Roman cultures on the islands. St Paul was also shipwrecked here according to the Bible.

The island is very beautiful, and the climate is warm and sunny, perfect for lazing on the beach and relaxing. The scenery is wonderful, and the sea breezes are refreshing. The sea is azure blue and clean, perfect for swimming and diving. There are some good walks and cycling is another good way to get around the island. There is a great nightlife on the main island with lots of pubs, clubs and restaurants. The sea food in Malta is especially good and usually very fresh. You can also take a cruise around the islands.

Since 1814 Malta has been part of the British Empire. It was an important link between Gibraltar and the Suez Canal. The ships would dock here on their long journeys to India and the Far East. British soldiers were stationed on the island until 1979. Malta became independent in 1964 but still had strong ties to Great Britain. In World War II the island was awarded the St George cross for bravery, one of the highest military honors in the British army. This was because of the efforts of the people in defending the island against the Germans. You can still see the cross on the Maltese flag. Only two organizations have ever been awarded this honor.

The strong ties to Britain mean that 90 percent of Maltese people speak English. This has led to a thriving English Language Teaching Industry. There are many language schools where you can learn English catering to all levels, as well as specialist subjects like Business English. You can then practice your language skills with the natives. The advantage Malta has over the traditional native speaking countries like Ireland and the UK is the climate. You can combine a sunny seaside holiday while studying English, a perfect combination. This is much better than learning in rainy and noisy London! All in all, a great place to visit and a great place to learn!
