Student opinions about Berlitz - English Language Academy, St. Julians

Verified reviews only, uncensored. All student opinions from students who booked a course at the school with LanguageCourse.net.
Liked
The school was very helpful in organizational moments, they helped to navigate around the city and gave a free safe for storing documents. All of them were really friendly :) + I liked the level of teaching and the fact that the groups consisted of different nationalities, so there was no temptation to speak our native languages. I really liked the school! They are very responsible in teaching and student success.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss At this school you can start studying not from Monday, but, for example, from Wednesday, although it is undesirable.

I felt immediately at home because the atmosphere is very homey. Everyone knew my name within two days and even the receptionist would greet me every morning. In short, it feels instantly familiar and contact with the school staff is very personal.

Good and ambitious teachers, Alex was especially great! We only had a small class, so the price is totally justified. I think the costs for registration and materials are very high.
Disliked
Learning English with a mask. Teachers use a lot of exercises on copies. The purchase of the book for 40 Euros, which we only used once, does not make sense to me.

There were few students in class and the teachers tackled our weaknesses, fixing common errors and customising the lesson to our needs
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Learn in advance about the sights to see in Malta, because there are many interesting places to visit and you don't want to miss them. A word of warning: in Malta the official language is not English, but Maltese. So outside the school you will not hear too much English.

Other comments The teachers rarely get informed about new students. This causes problems. More than three teacher have to share a book which is 13 years old. That is really pathetic. In my opinion it does not make sense to mix students, who spend more than six months there, up with students who are just staying a short period of time in one class.

The teachers are nice and hard-working.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss The accommodations. I did not stay in a flat but some of them are really close to the school but some others are 45 minutes away. The closest flats are more convenient.

Other comments I took the intensive course, which is an hour and a half more per day. It is worth it because it is not only focused on grammar like the others. My experience was very good.
