Malta is a perfect destination to learn English. The beautiful, sunny island in the middle of the Mediterranean offers a wide variety of English courses together with sea, sun and a varied leisure programme.
For more than 160 years Malta was a British colony. This time left its legacy in the form of a second official language - English. Most of the population speaks English freely and English teaching for foreign students is one of the most advanced industries in Malta.
Malta is one of the few truly bilingual countries in the world: here you will learn English not only in your classroom but also in your free time, which gives you plenty of opportunities to practise the living language. You can meet other learners of English from all over the world in the school as well as friendly locals and British expats. English language newspapers, books and magazines are sold everywhere and most TV and radio stations are in English as well.
At the same time you can experience a truly wonderful Mediterranean lifestyle with its great weather, delicious food, relaxed atmosphere and genuine, fun-loving people. The Maltese archipelago is famous for its southern hospitality and British legacy.
Escape the cold Northern climate and combine your English studies with a fun holiday – this is what makes Malta so popular among learners of all ages, nations and levels. While studying English in Malta you will enjoy year-round pleasant weather, great nightlife, small, picturesque towns and villages with cosy cafes and shops, sandy and rocky beaches with beautiful, blue seas and a wealth of history and culture.

Please remember that Malta is part of the EU and the Schengen Area. While most students will not need an entry visa to visit Malta, please check if you need one or not prior to travelling. The visa procedure is very simple and straight-forward. More information can be found here or in the Maltese Embassy in your country.
