Course structureAn overview of lesson times, starting from the first day
First Day (Monday)
The first day begins with reception, registration and a short language test. The test is nothing to worry about – it’s specifically designed to put you in a class with other students of a similar level to yours. The test will be followed by a session / welcome speech, the handing out of the teaching calendar and other activities, and possibly lessons. Here is an example:
- 08:00-08:15 Check-in and registration at the school
- 08:30 Test
- 10:00 Introduction and mini-tour
- 12:45 Lunch break

During the first week, you’ll be invited to join other students and teachers at an event organised for all new students. It may be held in a bar or at a typical Maltese restaurant, but whatever it is, make sure you go and socialise with other international students from all over the world!
By the second day, you will begin to follow the regular academic calendar. During the week, two different teachers will alternate, so you will be exposed different types of pronunciation. The first Wednesday of your course you will receive the textbook, and then as time goes by, you’ll receive the other supplementary educational materials. Note that during the high season, the school adopts a calendar called “Double Banking” when the lessons are held both in the morning and afternoon, but on alternate days. This simple system gives you the chance to enjoy your free time at different times of the day; for example, you’ll have Wednesday mornings free and Thursday afternoons free.

Getting around in Malta
With regard to the means of transport, in Malta you really have a lot of choices, ranging from cheap buses to visit inland to the efficient boats to visit the surrounding islands and even to a “water taxi” service in the Porto Grande. From the central station in La Valletta, buses reach virtually all the towns of the island. The bus station is right at the entrance of the old town (near the colossal “Fountain of the Tritons”). Usually there are buses departing every twenty minutes for any destination, every quarter of an hour for the most popular lines. The price of a one-way ticket is about €1.40. If you stay on the island for a long time it is definitely cheaper to buy a ‘weekly pass”. For about €12, you can travel anywhere for seven days (except for night buses).
