Hello, my name is Lydia Thomas and I am 18 years old and I come from Germany. I have just completed two weeks at Maltalingua school of English. This was my second time studying at the school, as I was also there last summer in August 2014.
I decided to come back because I fell in love with Malta last year and I felt that the second time at Maltalingua would allow me to continue the love affair. I’ll tell you some differences between spring and summer time at Maltalingua. 😀
This spring I have done really great activities for example we went horse riding at the Golden Bay which was a very beautiful experience. I also enjoyed two meals with my friends from school, one at Vecchia Napoli and one at Surfside. Both really enjoyable meals, with a great group of people!
One of the more exciting activities I tried has to be paint balling. It was very difficult but also a lot of fun and very high energy. I also visited the Sunday fish market at Marsaxlokk which is a very traditional experience. 😛
In the summer the range of activities was very varied. You can spend a lot more time sunbathing and swimming in the sea (because it is warmer), which is the perfect way to relax after class. You can visit some fabulous Maltese sights by boat such as Blue Grotto, Blue Lagoon in Comino and Gozo which are all extremely beautiful. The range of activities in the summer is just as varied as in the spring, with a full weekly programme of fun things.
As well as the great activities at Maltalingua, you also get thought by some really creative, interesting and professional teachers who also know how to join in the fun at the weekend. Part of the reason I came back to Maltalingua was to have my English improved.
In conclusion, I would definitely recommend Maltalingua because of the excellent teaching and interesting activity programme, no matter if you come in spring, summer, autumn or winter!
Good luck and I hope you enjoy this fantastic school as much as I have. 🙂
