Other comments
I spent two wonderful weeks on Malta in BELS school. The ideal location of the school allowed me to enjoy studying as well as swimming and being on Malta. Most of the students were older than 25 years old, so they had some life experience, which made conversations during lessons much more interesting. The teaching process was organized very well. Especially I would like to thank my teachers Dayton and Lorraine for their interesting and useful lessons.

The city Valetta! The interaction between historic city centre and new elements is very well accomplished. Anybody from tourists to diplomats cross in the smallest space. Rabatt and Medina on the main island and you should check out the museums.

The school is really very good. I had a bit of bad luck with the private accommodation, but many were extremely pleased with the private accommodation.

If it could be a very formative experience or not it depends on you only. The school gives you all the possibility to take the maximum advantage from this experience. The best part is the numerous occasions to socialize and to use the English in real life. It is not only a school.

I liked the informal atmosphere and the small size of the school, which allowed a personal relationship between teachers and students. I appreciated the careful management of the director and the teaching quality assessment carried out every week.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
it is useful to print a copy of the Bels school price list, just in case there were to pay extra, to avoid errors as it happened to me
Other comments
the apartment in the residence of the school was absolutely perfect because it was near the sea and practically adjoining the school, and then easily accessible.
