Atmosphere was great, the group was very small, therefore more effective.
Other comments
The school does not inform that even though the Senior Package is apparently sold and offered to senior students - the student might end up in the class full of teenagers - as classes are combined according to the English level and not age. That was informed a couple of days ahead of the start of the course. that was the biggest unfairness of the school even though at the end the group was small and senior, and overall experience was great.

Other comments
The school was small (only 6 classrooms), but familial. The school offered guided tours, but no parties for get together in the evening like in big schools. But that wasn't a problem. The students met each other to go out or for sightseeing. Elicia was a very good teacher because she corrected our mistakes a lot and she had a good feeling why we made this mistakes due to our native language. I would choose this school again. I liked my guest family. Some students changed their guest family, which was no problem.

I advise you to watch your English level after you have first week in IH maybe you would manage to change to higher level (e.g. from intermediate to upper-intermediate). You should take mini-group lessons. If you want to see as many sights of Malta as possible you should take a course without afternoon lessons. Otherwise you can take trips only on your weekend. All information about trips around Malta, bus stops, accommodation is available at reception.
Other comments
If you dislike something (teacher, lessons, class etc.) or you decided to change your group you should just talk with the school director or reception staff. Your preference and wishes will be heard and accepted as soon as possible. Anyway my English experience with IH in Malta was great, thank you!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I have attended both private lessons as classroom ones... I think that it's better to attend only the classroom lessons, and if the student will start his course during the week, it's much better to let him in only hearing the lessons, the learning it's better with the group support.
Other comments
No to private lessons and yes to more classes to attend during the week... Anyway I have to thank you Elena and all the staff for supporting me logistically..
