Response from school
Dear Claudia, Thanks for your review. We are sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with your stay however we would like you to elaborate further so that we can investigate this. We know that you weren't satisfied with the food provided by your host mother but you never mentioned that you weren't satisfied with the lessons while you were studying with us. We also understand that the late arrival of your baggage (almost half way through your stay) might have effected your opinion about your overall stay in Malta and we could understand your frustration because of this however we couldn't do anything more to rectify this,but to speak to Air Malta to deliver your suitcase as soon as possible (which we did constantly as we were in contact with you via Whatsapp trying to sort it out for you)

Additional information
Positive aspects of school
Staff is very kind, caring and helpful.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
There was no kitchen/kitchen facilities in the residence besides a fridge so it was not easy to make a dinner. Canteen has very nice food! You have to go to the office and request the trips as they are quite often not well promoted. In the end they end up not happening because they don't have the minimum amount of people. Apart from that, language assessments should involve speaking too, as it caused some problems if they are good in grammar but they are not able to speak.

Additional information
Positive aspects of school
Age range for Young Learners. Good option for young kids who want to start English lessons to avoid classes with teenagers. Most schools offer wider age range which is not beneficial for younger kinds. Our son who was reluctant to start learning English was encouraged to speak and now he is eager to continue classes back at home.
