The Island of Malta

The Maltese Archipelago is situated at the centre of the Mediterranean, less than 95km south of Italy. With a history that dates back to the 6th century BC, Malta has recently earned its reputation as being one of the most popular English language learning destinations in Europe.

The native English tongue, warm Mediterranean climate, year round sunshine and clear blue sea are just some of the things that lend themselves so well to choosing Malta as a destination.
On the 1st May 2004 the Maltese Islands became part of the European Union.

Places to visit


Jean Parisot de Valette, French Grand Master of the Order of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, built Valletta, the capital, after the Great Siege of 1565. The baroque-style building, many of which survived the blitz of the Second

World War, fully reflect Malta's rich heritage of archaeology, history, architecture, art and culture.

The walled-in city stands high above sea level on a peninsula which is flanked by the famous Grand Harbour on the south side and Marsamxett Harbour to the north. Its streets are set in a grid-like pattern.

Students can visit Valletta during the day or in the evening. Cafes are mostly Italian in style. Try Café Cordina, Eddies and Café Premier, all located in Republic Square and ideal for watching the world go by.
