Just a stone’s throw away from Maltalingua is the vibrant and lively St. Julian’s Bay. This is an ideal location whether you wish to enjoy some of the island’s most beautiful views or you’d rather spend your evenings experiencing some of Malta’s best nightlife. It also offers plenty of chances to mix with the locals and practise your newly-acquired English skills!

Students Night Out

For the night owls, Paceville is a short distance from the heart of St Julian’s Bay and boasts some of the biggest and best nightclubs in Malta or, if you’d prefer the comfort of a traditional English pub (and the opportunity to speak to native speakers), head to the Sun in Splendour. The picturesque Spinola Bay is perfect for a casual stroll after enjoying one of its many popular restaurants. For some quiet time, away from the busy bars and restaurants, Balluta Square has some very cosy little cafés and restaurants with a slightly more chilled-out atmosphere than the night spots of Paceville. If, however, excitement is what you’re looking for, then look no further than the casino at Dragonara Palace where you’ll have the chance to practise some slightly specialist English vocabulary and, hopefully, win enough to pay for a beer or two in Paceville!

Why English grammar is crucial to learning the language effectively.

As a world language, it is undeniable that English skills are vital, whether in business or simply when travelling. English can help you to communicate with people from all over the world and can provide new opportunities and open doors to you which were previously closed. Whether it’s the chance to sign a contract with an overseas customer or the chance to make new friends from around the world, English conversation skills are a major advantage. But is there more to using a second language than simply conversation practice?

Of course speaking skills are important and, by extension, it’s vital to increase your vocabulary but an often-neglected skill when learning English is its grammar. Grammar rules are the building blocks of a language and learning and understanding why sentences are constructed in a certain way or how to conjugate verbs, position adverbs and form tenses can help you to achieve fluency in English a lot faster than simply by speaking. If you understand the principles of English, you can apply these principles to any new concepts that you learn, increasing your capacity for independent learning as well as your ability to communicate effectively in English. As with any new skill, it takes practice to master and there are a number of online resources to help you.
