Study English courses in English schools in Malta

Malta is situated in the Mediterranean, 100 km south of Italy and enjoys sunny weather for three hundred days of the year. The skies are blue and the sea is warm even in winter. Malta is very popular for water-sport. Scubadiving, water-skiing, swimming, sailing, windsurfing, waterpolo and fishing are available.

The Maltese islands consist of Malta and the smaller island, Gozo and the tiny island Comino. Malta is about 300 sq.km, Gozo is approximately 100 sq.km, and Comino covers only 2.5 km. the capital of Malta is Valletta.

The total population of the 3 islands is 370,000. Maltese and English are both official languages in Malta. Malta was under British rule for 160 years and probably has the highest level of English in Europe (outside the UK and Ireland).

There is no official accreditation scheme for language schools in Malta. FELTOM is a self-regulatory body which guarantees schools are of a high quality and provides redress for dissatisfied students.

Culture

The Maltese are known for their Mediterranean hospitality. Malta is safe and the nightlife is similar to other Mediterranean resorts. Due to the warm nights a lot of the nightlife takes place outdoors, with small cafes and restaurants as well as larger bars and clubs.

Malta has been occupied by the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and French. In 1800 Malta became a British dominion, finally gaining Independence in 1964. The rich Maltese cultural calendar includes many religious celebrations and festivals commemorating the events of Malta's history. Malta is full of prehistoric temples and has some of the oldest surviving standing man-made structures in the world.


















































































Weather

Malta's climate is strongly influenced by the sea and is typical of the Mediterranean. The Islands have a very sunny climate with a daily average of five to six hours sunshine in mid-winter to more than 12 hours in summer. Winters are mild, with the occasional short chilly period brought about by the north and north-easterly winds from central Europe. Summers are hot, dry and very sunny. Summer Temperatures ranges between 24C in May and 32C and more in August, which is the warmest month.

Along the coast the summer temperatures in are often cooled by cooling sea breezes, but in spring and autumn a very hot wind from Africa occasionally brings high temperatures and humidity. This is known as the Sirocco and also affects Greece and Italy. In Malta the air is generally drier because of the short sea track from the African coast. Annual rainfall is quite low, averaging 700mm a year, and the length of the dry season in summer is longer than in neighbouring Italy. Sea bathing is quite possible well in to the winter months, and the beach season can last until mid to late October.

Finance

The Euro (€) is the legal currency of Malta. Malta uses a euros and cents system of decimal currency with 100 cents in a euro.



Budget

The cost of studying in Malta is significantly less than the UK and Ireland. Food and drink is cheaper, as is the cost of transportation. Accommodation (especially homestays) is not much cheaper when you consider the much lower wage base in Malta. Students should budget around €200 per week for accommodation, food and entertainment


Banks

The process of opening a bank account in Malta is not really different from other European countries, but as most students do not stay for long periods (six months or more), this is seldom necessary. The best way to open a bank account open an account in a bank in your home country that has a presence in Malta (such as HSBC).



Tipping

In cafes and restaurants a 15% tip is normal. Unless your food or drinks are delivered to you, you do not tip.









































Work

Finding work in Malta is very difficult. Unless you have a special skill (such as computer programming) and are sponsored by a foreign company, there is a huge amount of government bureaucracy preventing foreigners from legally working in Malta and an insular attitude to hiring people who are not native to the islands.

Some students find work working in bars or restaurants during the summer months but competition for these jobs is quite high and the work is poorly paid.
