Students liked about BELS, St. Pauls Bay
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.

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.
