Why choosing and English Course in Sliema? Some facts...Here is some more information on English courses in Sliema
Why take an English Course in tignè, Sliema?
Sliema was once an old fishing village, and is actually a peninsula surrounded by the Mediterranean sea. From the east coast of Sliema (where the school is located) you can enjoy a wonderful view of the capital city, Valletta. A little ferry boat will even take you across, so you can immerse yourself in the truly wonderful history of the Maltese nation. The Sliema promenade is the place to be, and is swarming with tourists and locals, sitting on benches overlooking the crystal clear waters, digging into their ice-creams or stopping for dinner at one of the numerous restaurants along the coast. The “Sliema Waterfront” is truly a gem. In downtown Sliema, just a few hundred feet away, you’ll find The Point, a large shopping centre along with an endless array of boutique shops and artsy cafes. In the other direction, past the vibrant St. Julian’s (brimming with amazing cuisine), you’ll find the town known for its nightlife, Paceville. Along with clubs and bars, there is a lovely little beach, a cinema, bowling alley and shopping centre. Sliema is also very well connected to the rest of the island, and public transport is frequent and reliable in this location. It takes about 10 minutes to get to Valletta by bus, about 10 minutes to St. Julian’s and Paceville. Buses will also take you to the beautiful golden beaches in the north of the island… Riviera, Golden Bay and Mellieha Bay are all worth seeing!

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” servi
ce 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).
