Hi, I am an English native speaker teacher in Italy and have recently spent 2 weeks in Sliema with a small group of Italian students. My students really enjoyed the course and were happy with their teachers and class activities. They said the teachers were motivating and they felt they were learning a lot of new words and expressions. They loved the afternoon and evening activities with the activity leaders. As an Esl teacher I really liked it and found the staff super friendly and very helpful. I enjoyed the cheerful atmosphere there and actually quite miss the buzz! I found the activities were a nice combination of fun and culture. They had quite a few parties and also visited historical cities . I believe they had a lot to offer for teenagers who are not easily satisfied! Well done! The only thing my students complained about was the food..the sandwiches weren't appreciated but I trust that it will be improved in the future! Hope to be there again!

As a teacher, I have just come back from Malta where I had been Staying for 2 weeks with 18 students from 11 to 15 years old. I complained for the Low level of the teaching quality. Not native teachers, with a bad knowledge of English, mess, noise in classes, everybody could do what they wanted. I asked to move some of my students because the level was not right for them, but they did it for only a few. Excursions were a mess: bad organized with young leaders who didn't know what to do, no previous info about the excursions, no controls in the apartments by the leaders. Bring apartments: horrible, dirty, full of beatles and big insects. Food was disgusting and of a very low quality. I claimed a lot, but it was useless. Not again with my students.

Teacher was good but the staff in charge of visa was not helpful. I don’t understand why they put signs ‘ask anything about visa’ on the desk. If they don’t want to help
