the thing that I certainly liked the most of the school were the teachers and the school staff, all were very kind and nice people, always available for any request and never rude. And the lessons were also useful and exhaustive, and the teachers always prepared.
I would definitely go back to study at this school. I spent many pleasant moments and I was never bored. It is the first time I have met people from Anglo-Saxon countries that aren't arrogant or rude. And then Malta is beautiful.

The atmosphere. The teachers aimed to get us to talk which is how you learn the language but you also get to know your colleagues quickly and gain confidence with them.

I stayed there just for a week, so speaking practice was the most important for me. MANY thanks to the teacher, for me it was very interesting. I really liked the organization of excursions, they were very interesting and provided a great chance to practice.
Perhaps the school should think about organizing short-term courses for 1-2 weeks where the main focus will be made on practical use of the language and not on learning it, because I think it is impossible to learn something within 1-2 weeks. You should also think about organizing Saturday and even Sunday classes, it would be very convenient for me. WIFI does not work well on the 5th floor, for me it was important, as I could not use the dictionary.

The central location of the school, the competence of the teachers
The school building is spread over 6 floors with a single small elevator for students (2 or 3 people), or a very narrow staircase. The two stars for the organization are due to the following episode: one day 3 other people and I were sent to a classroom for the lesson, but after half an hour wasted waiting we realized that the lesson was in a another classroom. The lesson started without us and no one thought to warn us of the error. Despite these small problems, the general judgment is still positive, both for the school and for the teachers.
