Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you want just one week to learn that you should not do at this school. I studied in a group of 30+. The first day was a waste of time and money. On the first day we were shown a presentation of the school, photos of all the teachers and staff, spoke about Malta, fire safety rules, we went in circles around the school ... about 2 hours took the test, which was conducted in a dark room, as a result of the speed of my implementation It was slower than usual, and I was assigned to the group level below. At school, there is no mandatory requirement to perform the on-line test, so the group of people gathered with a completely different level. On Wednesday, I realized that not forge their level, but to change the group for 2 days did not make sense. I have the experience of studying in the same school in London, the difference is huge, and in the organization and performance classes.
Other comments
In conducting the test requested that light, but girl-officer, who conducted the test, did not consider it necessary to do so. Classes were held in a very small room, it was very crowded and the air conditioner did not work the first day. At a temperature of 33 with the windows open 3 people have become ill. One of the three teachers for 30 minutes trying to explain one of the 13 people in the grammar of the group, which in my opinion is not allowed in the group 3-hour lesson.

During the General English I had different teachers with different approaches. I feel I have lost my time (about 8 hours of my course) and my money with a teacher In particular.

Well-organized study hours. The school staff was sometimes rude. Not the teachers, but only some people of the staff.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The first day they gave us all the information projecting a power point presentation that however has not been given to us. I would suggest a manual richer in information, the one received was a little bit thin. The drivers who accompanied us in the transfer from the airport to the apartments and vice versa, often they didn't know the addresses of the accommodations.
Other comments
Overall the judgment is good. The only comment is about the personnel of staff, that sometimes was a little bit rude.

From the three teachers I was really impressed by Kis, The teacher from Malta dissapointed me. She is young, I can't remember even her name. When I had classes with her I regretted that I wasted time and money, but for the teacher Kis, you could pay extra)

I liked the Internet area, that was available for a lot of time during the day and on saturdays, I also liked the EC Beach club (it's free although it was closed on Sundays). I also liked classes and classrooms.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
It's important to live more or less near to the school, because public transport in Malta is horrible. If you live near to the school is easier to use the Internet area, the EC Beach Club or the gym when you want.

great experience. I never thought to go alone to another country, where I have to speak English, but it was the best decision i made. and Malta is the best place, because here you find people from all over the world and you just have to speak English! but I think it is not that important, to book school for the whole day. the best is to go around with the people and just talk. that's the way to learn English.
