I had an unforgettable time in Malta! The Cavendish school is located in a beautiful building in the heart of Valetta. The team is not only professional, but also dedicated, kind and warm. Lessons are even more fun in this great atmosphere. In addition, the school offers great excursions - opportunities to use what you have learned! Thank you for everything! We always love to come back!

Why I went to this school more then once? To learn English in a warm Country was one of the important point why I decided Malta. Since 2014 i went there every year. In the Cavendish I like the way how they teach and how they guide me with my English experience. Its always a pleasure to met people from the whole world. The staff is extremely friendly and helpfully.

I attended this language school 4 times and I would chose it again and again, as my English skills permanently improved during my lessons and I always had a lot of fun with both alle the international students (of all ages) and the wonderful crew including teachers and all the school staff members. The school itself is a small but beautiful building located in the heart of the Maltese capital, which makes learning a big pleasure!!

I spent a week of the summer 2019 in this school, hoping I could train my conversational English a bit. No way. This school is the worst of language schools I ever attended, and I have been learning languages in England, France, Spain and Italy. The worst of all, from an organizational, methodological and social point of view. Teachers are hardly trained there, they are mostly Maltese second language speakers, hardly any native speakers. They do not use modern language methods, not even listening exercises. The placement test is a joke, there are B and C levels together in one class. A complete mess! Courses are packed in summer, most of all the Junior Classes. Pupils can bring their mobiles and play with them all the time, no appeal for concentration. Lessons are only 4 days a week (which is not said in the contract) and the excursions are all but thrilling. This is a total waste of money. Attention, parents, don't send your kids to this school. It's just a place where they get stored, not taught. A real rip-off!
