Yes, Maltese speak English at a native level. English is the joint official language of Malta and is spoken by almost the whole population. It was introduced to the island in 1800, when the British ousted the French garrison, which had taken control of Malta in 1798. Due to Malta's strategic position in the middle of the Mediterranean, it became the headquarters of the British navy. Some attempts were made in the 1950's to integrate the island as a full part of the United Kingdom. Despite this, Malta became independent in 1964 as a Dominion within the British Commonwealth, with Elisabeth II as head of state. Finally, in 1974, the island became a Republic and the last British troops left in 1979.
English is very important in Malta as it is the language in which the majority of affairs are conducted. A good example is the University of Malta, which offers most of its courses in English. The most important daily newspapers and media are in English. It is therefore easy for Anglophones to get by in Malta, as the language is used in every aspect of life on a daily basis. English is taught in schools from an early age and parents encourage their children to communicate in English.
Maltese, the other official language, a Semitic language which descended from Maghrebi Arabic, with many borrowings from Italian and, in particular, Sicilian. The Maltese alphabet is based on the Latin alphabet, but uses the diacritically altered letters ż, also found in Polish, as well as the letters ċ, ġ, għ, ħ and ie, which are unique to Maltese.
We have a really cosmopolitan atmosphere. Our English students actually come from all over the world, from many Latin American countries to many European and Asian countries. Of course, depending on the season, the origin of the students can vary.
If you have booked a transfer, you will be picked up at the airport and brought to our campus. We will then show you to your appartment or take you to your host family.
On Monday, the first day of class, you will be asked to take a placement test if you have not already taken it online before your trip. You will then be placed in an appropriate study group by our experienced academic staff and classes can begin.
On Sunday evening, there is a Wellcome party, where you can connect and make plans for the coming weeks.
Of course, we also have a supervised programme for teenagers. We organise activities and excursions by experienced teamers after class, and 1-2 full-day excursions take place at the weekend. Here you can find more information on the programme for young learners.
