School Activity feedback by Alex

During my four weeks in April/May 2015 at Maltalingua I joined a lot of school activities organized by Julian, the coordinator. The activities I liked most where the English guided tours with Mariella a school teacher and licensed guide. We were small groups and every week we went with a private bus to different places of interest. We visited the old town Mdina, with its small narrow streets and the fabulous view across the whole island. The stop at Fontanella Tea Garden, with the famous chocolate cake was an obligation!

The Lascaris War Rooms Trip in Valletta was one of the most surprising tours I took part. The way the tourist guide from the museum talked about “the part of Malta during the second world war” was very interesting and he was extremely enthusiastic. After the museum we walked with Mariella around the city and to the Upper Barrakka Garden with its panoramic view. Later we made a stop at one of the best ice-cream parlour in Valletta.

I was there again and again…. :)

The three city tour and the megalithic Temples tour were also very interesting and informative. Only the 4D film at the temples museum was not very informative and meaningful. Whatever, on the other hand the museum and the temples were great to visit! For me it is a must! Mariella knew a lot of history and she also told stories from the present age of Malta. Her English was clear and easy to understand….also for me, perfect.

There were other not English guided tours also organized by Julian I liked too. We were always a nice group of students with Julian and we had a lot of fun. Sometimes it was a little chaotic, the bus rides needed a long time for every distance because of the incredible traffic on this island. But at the end everything worked! 😀

The Beach trip to a sandy beach called Ghajn Tuffieha was lovely for relaxing, swimming and playing beach ball. The Boat trip to the Blue Grotto was one of the worse tours I made. Eight euro for that short boating was really expensive but anyway to see blue grotto was nice and I would do it again. The wine tasting was truly really interesting, to see a wine cellar in another country and to taste a wine directly from a winemaker it’s always a nice experience. The canoeing tour in the lovely Gnejna bay I also enjoyed a lot. We were around 20 canoes paddling around. Some of us good other better!

The evening tours with the school were …… what should I say? Now I know that Malta has good wines and excellent cocktails.

At the weekend I made with other students together (sometimes organized by Julian and sometimes only recommended by him) a trip to Gozo and the sightseeing highlights like the Azure Window or a Boat trip around Comino with it’s lovely caves and the beautiful Blue Lagoon or a trip to Marsaxlokk to see the famous fish market. To travel around Malta is easy. With the public transport you can go to nearly every point on the island for little money but you need really a lot of time and even more patience. As I told you before, the traffic on Malta is a mess.

I ´ll recommend every school activity! I loved it. It was an easy way to see and hear a lot of this beautiful island and to stay together with other students and to practice my English.

Like the school motto: Learn English under the sun!

By the way, I enjoyed your lessons and I want to say thanks for this time, I attended a course B1+.

June,  the beginning of summer time here in Malta : ). Malta is very well re-known for its scorching summer sun with temperatures reaching in the mid 30s and above and it also hardly ever rains during the summer months.

For these reasons Malta turns into a Mediterranean paradise, attracting visitors from all four corners, with its main attractions being the sun, sea, sand and naturally learning English : )

beaches maltaMalta is littered with various blue flag beaches and bays all having different characteristics and landscapes. Popular beaches such as Mellieha Bay and Golden Bay can be found in the north of Malta, whilst rock pools and bays can be found in the south and all over the islands. Most beaches in Malta offer the opportunity to partake in a wide variety of watersports, such as jet skiing, diving, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, paddle boating, and much more. Beach BBQ’s are also organized on various beaches for private events or even beach parties.

Speaking of parties, Malta is not far off when it comes to offering some pool party maltaof the best summer parties. Boat parties that take you out into the open water until the sun sets over the red sky and some of the best pool parties in some of the best venues Malta has to offer. Pool parties are increasing in popularity over recent years with private events and parties taking place in such venues.

The night life here in Malta is something not to miss, with St.Julians (Paceville) being the star attraction and Valletta increasing in popularity over the past few years, bringing back the life it (Valletta) once had many years ago. 

One of the most popular upcoming events this June will be the Earth Garden festival held from the 5th till the 6th of June.earth garden malta

This three day event takes place in central Malta, in a remote village called Ta’ Qali, where hundreds of people visit to see what its all about.

Earth Garden is all about up-and-coming artists, some of the best local productions and a good vibe.  A variety of activities are also organised such as exhibited art installations, sculptures, and photographic works and also street drama performances. Various genres of music are played, including tribal music, bands, reggae and also electro swing. This is start to the summer life here in Malta : )

Another key event taking place that same weekend is Rockastra, being held in Victoria, Gozo. This will be the third edition of Rockastra, a spectacular concert of rock music featuring  some of the leading local singers and bands. The location of this event attracts many locals and foreigners to visit the little island of Gozo.
