Students’ Blogs

• Armands S. | 14 years | Latvian | Advanced

Latvia Hi everyone! My name is Armands and now I will tell you what I like or dislike in Malta.

I was in Malta last year. I came back because last year I had fun here. I met a lot of new friends and came closer to Malta’s history. I really enjoyed it last year and I wanted to come here again.

This year I met staff from the last year (Gabriel and Steve).

When Saoirse saw me this year she said: “I remember you from the last year!”

I asked “OK, so what’s my name?”

She answered: “Armands”.

This year the trips to places in Malta are more interesting and they are better than last year. Maybe because last year I was a Junior and this year I’m a Teen. But I think that this is because last year the first week activities were the same as the third week’s trips.

One thing that I dislike this year is that from last year I was funnier and better than from this year.

Last year nearly every staff said: “Come here next year, we will be here again” but only Gabriel, Saoirse and Steve kept their promises.

I enjoy Malta and don’t want to go home.

• Elizaveta D. | 14 years | Russian | Advanced

When I arrived to Malta, I knew that the holiday will be great. After some days I started to enjoy Malta, because there were a lot of nice students and staff. There were also a lot of foreign students!

First, I would like to say that I have the best roommates ever! Their names are Nika (Veronika) and Nastya (Anastasia). They are the best and I love them. I have known Nastya for only two weeks, but I already call her my friend. If I was alone in my room, it would have been boring. Also, I have got some foreign friends; their names are Olivier, Filip and Anton (Polish & Swedish). They are funny too. Most of the time we are together: me, Nika, Nastya, Anton, Filip and Olivier. Because of them I don’t miss my home at all!

Also, I have got a wonderful teacher, her name is Rodiann. She is very friendly! Our lessons are very interesting because of her. We do a lot of exercises, interesting games and conversations about crazy topics. Two weeks have passed and it’s like only two days! It’s incredible! I hope that my parents will send me to Malta again next year.

• Alexander V. | 14 years | Russian | Advanced

This is my second time in Malta. I decided to come here again in the same hotel because I like this hotel and knew everything about it. Another reason is because I thought that my friends who were here last year would be here again. So it has happened! Of course not all of my friends are here again, only three, but they remembered me and were glad to see me here again.

The staff and some teachers remembered me and said: "Welcome back!". I was glad to see them too. They also were asking me questions about me. For example: "How are you?"

I wanted to come to Malta for the second time because it has a lot of beautiful views and cities mostly, Malta`s capital city, Valletta. There are a lot of beautiful historical houses, places, and also there are a great number of shops where you can buy everything you want. There are also good activities in the programme. Sometimes you don`t know what to do in your free time. These activities can help you to become more healthy and stronger. Also these activities help you to find new friends and to get to know other students.

There are good english teachers. They help you to learn new words, to study, to understand and to pronounce english words correctly. Since last year the hotel has changed: there are new teachers, new activities, and new staff members. This year the rooms have new furniture. I like this hotel and maybe, I`ll come here for the third time.

• Anastasia S. | 15 years | Russian | Advanced

Two weeks ago I came to Malta to study English.

It took 4 hours to get to Malta from Russia. Soon I made friends. They are very friendly and always support me when I need their help. The school has a very interesting daily programme. I really enjoy it because every day I can find something interesting for me to do with my friends. We have a lot of activities: excursions, parties, shopping, swimming and boat trips.

We also have lessons. I find lessons interesting for me because I can develop my knowledge in different ways not only in studying English.

Unfortunately, in one week I will go back to Russia I will miss this place.

• Alexander L. | 13 years | Russian | Advanced
I arrived to Malta on 24th June 2017 with my friends. On the first day we met some new friends. We all stay together in one room. In the first day we went to the club, it was fun. But I was really tired because we stayed up really late.
• Simona K. | 15 years | Bulgarian | Advanced

Hi, I’m Simona and I am from Bulgaria. I arrived in Malta on Sunday. This is my first time at the school and I didn’t have friends here. I was really stressed out and nervous because everyone knew each other and I didn’t know what to do. But on Monday we went to Popeye Village. This place is originally created for Disney’s film but after they made the movie they abandoned the place. Now the village is open for tourists. The staff helped us to create our own film. It was very funny and helped me to make new friends and feel a lot more comfortable.

At the end of the day we went on a boat party. It was a great experience. I was dancing and chatting and had a lot of fun. Now I love the time I spend here in Malta.
