Why study English in Sliema
Find out why this destination may be the right choice for you!
Sliema was once a small fishing village, and is situated on 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 ferry will even take you across the short stretch of water, enabling you to immerse yourself in the truly wonderful history of Malta.
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” truly is 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 art cafes.
In the other direction, past the vibrant St. Julian’s (famed for its amazing cuisine), you’ll find a 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 by frequent and reliable public transport. It takes about 10 minutes to get to Valletta by bus, and similarly 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!
