Malta is an oasis in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Thanks to its history linked to Great Britain, Malta is the ideal place to learn English. Due to its strategic location, Malta has been contested by various powerful countries over the centuries.
The archipelago consists of three islands of unique beauty: Malta, Gozo and Comino. A fourth island, equally beautiful, is Cominotto, which is uninhabited. Several populations have settled in Malta throughout the course of history, all with the purpose of conquering the island: Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans and Arabs.
This peculiar historical background has turned Malta into a unique place for its mix of cultures. The traces of ancient civilizations and struggles for the territory can be seen in the prehistoric temples, forts, castles, medieval dungeons, baroque palaces and also Norman cathedrals.
In 1530, King Charles I of Spain donates the Maltese Islands to the Knights of St. John, a military religious order also known as the Order of Malta. This arm of the Catholic Church fights against the Muslims on several occasions, during the so called "Crusades".
In 1798, Napoleon invades Malta and deprives the Knights of St. John of the ruling power. The Maltese do not support the French occupation at all. Great Britain, aware of the strategic power of this archipelago, decides to intervene with a military blockade and numerous battles to demolish the French power in 1800. The British rule is sealed by the Treaty of Paris in 1814 and the islands remain a British colony until acquiring th independence in 1964.
In 1974, Malta becomes a Republic and more recently, on the 1st of May 2004, the country achieves the inclusion in the European Union. Malta is considered an open air museum in the Mediterranean Sea for its high concentration of cultural attractions and historical richness. With regard to this, the history of Saint Paul's Bay is fascinating. In the year 60. C., the apostle went ashore there and today, thanks to its crystal clear water, it is one of the most beautiful places on earth to enjoy breathtaking sunsets.
In Malta you won't need travelling long distances. The total area of the three Maltese islands is only 316 square kilometers. Its nature makes it as an exceptional place to enjoy the summer in the Mediterranean style. Here you'll have the chance to enjoy beaches, traditional food, hiking, water sports and a growing multiculturalism brought along by students of English each summer.
The British presence for more than 150 years ago makes Malta one of the best options to learn English abroad. Malta has a very high number of accredited schools in English, to be a place with a population of just 400.000 inhabitants. For its excellent teaching quality and affordable prices, Malta attracts more than 30,000 students of English each year.

People in Malta are extroverted, easy-going and friendly. It will be easy to put into practice what you learned in your English classes, talking to strangers in public spaces, as the inhabitants of the archipelago are always ready and willing to give information and have a chat on the street.
The Maltese live without haste. They enjoy their spare time amid a multifaceted architecture, as it presents certain features from Northern Africa, a touch of British nobility – in Malta they actually drive on the left side and they have the typical London phone booths - and Italian-style Renaissance buildings. The most prominent buildings in the profile of the Maltese cities are the churches: there are nearly 300, with various architectural styles. If you pay attention to the names of the cities, you'll become aware of all the cultures that have been mixing up in Malta: Victoria, Valletta, Birzebbuga, Mdina, Rabat, Birzebbuga and Saint Julian's, for example.
Undoubtedly, the most famous Maltese character is Corto Maltese, a melancholy sailor born in Valletta, son to a British officer and an Andalusian prostitute.
