Information on the English School in Gozo
Gozo’s English school, central and beautifully managed, is a small family run school, with a special vibe that have helped it attract adults from all over Europe… and beyond!
At Full-immersion we believe that small realities like this English school in Gozo are extremely rare gems within the EFL industry, especially considering that they decided to remain small to value quality over quantity. Think about this: the owner is a Language Teacher herself, who could know that the class environment is the key to success better than her?
But it doesn’t end here, this boutique language school is located literally 20 minutes walk away from the capital of Gozo, Victoria (also known as Rabat), and its wonderful acropolis. If you choose Gozo, you get a truly wonderful opportunity to admire some of the best landscapes of the Mediterranean sea, immersing yourself in the English language.
Many students appreciate the small size of the school, with its capacity of just above 90 students and an average of only 9 students per class. Due to its size, you’ll get to know other international, adult students, in no time - and we can guarantee that this can turn a simple language course into an incredibly intimate and unforgettable personal experience!
The school offers a limited number of spacious, bright and air-conditioned classrooms, in a stress-free environment, perfect to turn your English course in Gozo for Adults into an effective and enjoyable experience.

Why study English in Gozo
Find out why this destination may be the right choice for you!
If you think that Malta is the best place to study English – sun, beaches, Mediterranean lifestyle – but you are looking for a deeply relaxing experience, Gozo is the ideal destination. Greener and smaller than Malta, Gozo offers mature students a unique experience at a more relaxed pace.
In Gozo, it is still possible to experience the local folklore first-hand, with some of these older traditions and habits slowly vanishing from the larger island of Malta. Stunning beaches line the coast, with a warm and sunny climate making it almost always a good time for a walk and sight-seeing.
Enjoy the local delicacies among the friendly and welcoming population. The island offers a variety of wonderful trails, you can choose to go hiking on the cliffs, or long walks by the sea. Take a trip to the seaside town of Marsalforn and be sure to try the fresh seafood!
This island is oozing with history, culture and some amazing architecture. Take a trip to Victoria and wonder round cobbled alleys within the Citadel walls. Visit the array of museums, including the Folklore Museum, the Archaeology Museum and the Torture Museum (located within prison walls which date back to the 16th Century).
History lovers will appreciate a visit to Ggantija Temples, dating back to 3000 BC! Xlendi is also very welcoming, characterised by a small bay surrounded by natural arches and caves, turquoise waters and plenty of areas to sit and enjoy a picnic.
Grab your friends, practice your English and enjoy the sea and sunshine!
