This week Malta presented us with the Isle of MTV, an open air festival attracting over 50,000 people, coming together for one of Malta’s best free events. This is a spectacular event that takes place every June celebrating the beginning of a new summer ahead of us.

It has now been seven years since the start of the Isle of MTV in Malta, it is one of the greatest shows being held here and also Europe’s biggest free event!

Once again it was held at the beautiful Fossos square in Floriana, right in front of the local parish church.

This year’s line-up consisted of, DJ Hardwell, Kiesza, Dizzee Rascal, Nicole Scherzinger and Enrique Iglesias, a line-up that certainly attracted a great number of students from different schools around Malta. With no exception to our school, with a group of over 40 students including our junior students.

Locals and foreigners mix together creating an amazing atmosphere. As the sun hid away and the lights turned on, the party began. First to perform was the Canadian artist Kiesza, a good start to the party having just being introduced to the music industry. One artist after another the Isle of MTV never fails to create an amazing spectacle. Over 3 hours of  pure relaxation, nothing beats a great party with flashing lights, super sound and great company.

It is definitely a night that our students will surely not forget, have a look at our pictures and see for yourselves 😉

July is just around the corner and Malta is heating up and buzzing with life. Sunny blue skies and temperatures reaching 35⁰C create the perfect opportunity for swimming all around Malta, Gozo and Comino.

Beer Festival:farsons beer fest

The Farsons Great Beer Festival is held from the 27th of July to the 5th of August. Definitely one of the best festivals held every summer here in Malta. Not only do tourists get to taste our local beers such as CISK, but also the opportunity to try other world renowned beers. The Farsons Great Beer Festival is held in the small village of Ta’ Qali with the ancient city of Mdina as its backdrop.

It’s a festival that is all about good music, good food and, of course, good beer, definitely one not to be missed. It is a free 10-day festival filled with lots of entertainment and activities, and a large selection of bars offering food and drink. Numerous live performances featuring hot local musicians and bands can be enjoyed on the open-air stages.

MuJazz-Festival-MALTAsic:

In the middle of July we have the Malta Jazz and Rock Festival which is held from the 17th to the 19th. This is a three night concert full of international jazz music being held beneath Valletta’s stronghold, revealing a beautiful scenery of one of the nicest man made harbours world-wide. Fans of jazz music will gladly take this opportunity to spend beautiful evenings with world-famous artists this month.

If Jazz is not your thing, just around the corner from the school is Malta’s entertainment hub of Paceville – the town that never sleeps.

Beaches and Coves:Maltese beach

The Maltese islands have over 30 different beaches and bays. Surrounded by water, it rarely takes more than one hour to reach a destination of your choice. Whether in Gozo, Comino or Malta you are never far from the crystal clean blue waters perfect for water sports, snorkelling or simply sipped on an ice cold beer!

Boat Party Maltalingua StyleBoat Party Night Cruise:

The boat depart Sliema front at around sun set and these twin masted wooden ships motor out of Valletta harbour and head along the eastern side of Malta up the coat to the islands in the north. Propelled with pulsating music and high spirits the Turkish gullet spends time in the Blue lagoon for a swim and then returns back to Malta at around mid-night. A great way to wind down after a week of study.

Come and visit us at Maltalingua and experience the difference!

A Trip to Valletta with Maltalingua

Valletta Trip

Article written by: Danilo Plüss (Maltalingua Student)

On Wednesday, June the 11th, we visited Valletta. The activity was organized by Mariella our English teacher and tour guide. We met up at Giuseppe in St. Julians and while we waited for the bus we had a cold beer :)

The driver arrived at 15:15 at Giuseppe and full of expectations of Valletta, we get on the bus. The driver will bring us safely through the traffic to Valletta. As we arrived Mariella showed us the first building while talking about the history of Malta. This was the palace of the Prime Minister. Then she led us to the fortress town and explaining various buildings – of course in English!

Malta’s capital city: a living, working city, the administrative and economic heart of the islands. Valletta was named after its founder, the Grand Master of the Order of St John, Jean Parisot de la Valette and it is situated near the two deep harbours Marsamxett and the Grand Harbour. It only took 15 years to build all of Valletta with all the forts and cathedrals.

The most impressive for me was the view of the ports of Birgu, Bormla and Isla.

After nearly three hours walking through Valletta and another cold beer in a street café we left satisfied and with a lot of historical knowledge and beautiful memories to take home with me.

In all, a perfect day with Maltalingua!

A visit to the Blue Grotto

Blue Grotto

Rating: 5.0/5 (2 votes cast)

The Blue Grotto is simply one of the nicest places to be visited in Malta. Just like the Blue Lagoon, it takes its name from the crystal blue waters it offers. The Blue Grotto is located at the very south of Malta but unlike the Blue Lagoon which is a bay, the Blue Grotto is an inlet cave. There are a number of caves which can be visited by boat.

With sunny weather over the Maltese islands it is an ideal activity for the students. The location is a 30 minute drive away from the school and once we reached the location you can really feel a change in the environment.

As we arrived you can immediately see Filfa, one of Malta’s islands just a few kilometres away. We quickly got our boat tickets and where put into groups of eight, each small boat behind another. The driver of the boat was a relatively old man who had been working there for over 40 years. He explained as best as he could as we went from cave to cave.

The formation of the caves and the clearness of the water are an amazing spectacle. Each cave has a different shape creating different colour effects reflected off the water. After the visit was over we headed back to shore and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon swimming in the cool clean waters.

The students really had a good time because it is just such a nice place and I definitely recommend anyone visiting Malta to visit the Blue Grotto.
