Exercises for listening comprehension are important for holding a conversation in English at work, at university and in everyday life. That's why we attach great importance to our course participants developing a trained ear for the spoken English language.
Exercises to train pronunciation are important and are practised by having our course participants master situations with English in role plays. The less you have to concentrate on English pronunciation, the more resources you have for the content.
For each course type and level there is a basic vocabulary that you need to learn. At our language school in Malta, you will be taught this vocabulary in interesting exercises and can learn and practice it throughout the day in everyday situations.

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.
