At the National Football Stadium in Malta

Thanks to our student Malte for writing this nice post :-)

Today, Wolfgang and I went to the national football stadium of Malta. We saw the game Malta against Bulgaria. When we went by bus to the stadium we didn’t see that many people. First when we were standing in front of the stadium we saw a big group of people. The stadium was very modern and I was very surprised by this. After a little bit of trouble with the tickets (the scanner didn’t accept my ticket) we got into the stadium.

At first, as good german guys, we bought ourselves beer and pizza. Then looking for our seats, was a little adventure, because the seats had no number. After we sad down, we looked around and we didn’t see many people. We were surprised because we thought Malta was a football loving country. When the game started, we thought there was about 3.500 people in the stadium, which was crazy because there were seats for 17.797 people.

We had a good mix of Maltese and Bulgarian fans. 9 minutes later the Bulgarian scored the first goal. The Maltese gave it their all, but they were not better than the Bulgarians. I enjoyed watching the Maltese team so much, that I bought an official Maltese jersey during halftime. In minute 59 of the game, the Maltese defence made a lot of mistakes and the Bulgarians scored their second goal very easily.

The last 20 minutes of the game only Malta was in the offence and in the 78th minute they scored the equalising goal. The game ended and Bulgaria win 2:1, Malta played better than Bulgaria, but with 2 shots that hit the post and 2 very close headers over the goal, but they had bad luck.

I’am glad that I saw this game and want to see another game soon.

Fun, sun and confidence in English with Maltalingua’s Junior Course

If you’re aged between 8-12 or 13-17 and want to extend your summer, have some fun AND learn English, Maltalingua’s junior language course is ideal for you! Malta is a beautiful island with an extremely pleasant climate and, due to its location in the Mediterranean Sea, is still warm even in October!

A course at Maltalingua gives you the opportunity to study English with other kids and teenagers in a British owned and run school with an international environment. Class sizes are small and there is great focus on personal, individual attention to the students, both in and out of the classroom. All teachers carry a certification to teach English as a foreign language so the quality of the school and its teaching is extremely high.

Extend your summer in Malta

Learning at Maltalingua does not take a break when lessons are over! The ALL (Active Language Learning) method of teaching combines in-class tuition with outdoor active learning so you can ‘learn by doing,’ gaining experience of real-life situations while fully immersed in an English speaking environment. Maltalingua School of English also offers a comprehensive programme of social, cultural and sporting activities as well as evening entertainment so you can spend your free time making new friends and practising your English! You can also visit the school’s  new Beach Club which is open all year round (weather permitting), just off Mellieha Bay, the largest beach in Malta, and enjoy lunch and use of the facilities.

As the only language school in Malta which is open during the autumn holidays, this is a great time to benefit from the special offer where you can save up to €100 off the normal cost on an English course (see flyer for details).
