The combination of language learning and exploring the island’s popular sights made Alexandra’s experience of taking English courses in Malta truly unforgettable.
18-JUL-2023 | Learning a new language is an enriching experience that opens doors to exciting opportunities and broadens our horizons. Alexandra, a Swiss student from the Verbalists Education & Language Network, recently embarked on a fantastic journey to Malta to improve her English skills through a 4-week Intensive English course. By taking the counsel of Verbalists’ academic advisors, Alexandra went on an adventure that not only enhanced her English skills but also introduced her to the captivating culture and breathtaking scenery of this Mediterranean gem.
Valletta: A living tapestry of history and culture
Alexandra’s first stop was the enchanting city of Valletta, the capital of Malta. Steeped in history and recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Valletta is a true architectural marvel. Its narrow cobblestone streets lead to stunning baroque palaces, grand churches, and imposing fortresses. Alexandra immersed herself in the city’s rich cultural heritage, exploring the famous St. John’s Co-Cathedral, home to awe-inspiring masterpieces by Caravaggio, and the Grand Master’s Palace, a testament to the Knights of Malta’s legacy. With its vibrant atmosphere and bustling waterfront, Valletta offered Alexandra a glimpse into the heart of Maltese life.
Mdina: A timeless Citadel of Tranquility
Next on Alexandra’s itinerary was a visit to the ancient city of Mdina, also known as the “Silent City.” Enclosed within imposing medieval walls, Mdina exudes an aura of tranquility and timelessness. As she wandered through its narrow streets, Alexandra marveled at the stunning architecture, palatial mansions, and charming courtyards. The Cathedral of St. Paul, with its magnificent interior and serene atmosphere, left her in awe. Exploring Mdina during the evening, when the city’s golden lights twinkle against the night sky, provided Alexandra with an unforgettable experience that transported her back in time.
Blue Lagoon: Nature’s aquamarine paradise
For a refreshing escape from the urban hustle and bustle, Alexandra set her sights on the renowned Blue Lagoon. Situated on the island of Comino, just a short boat ride from Malta, this natural wonder is a true paradise for nature enthusiasts. The crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Blue Lagoon are simply breathtaking, inviting visitors to take a dip and enjoy the serenity of this idyllic setting. Alexandra indulged in swimming and basking in the warm Mediterranean sun, surrounded by sheer natural beauty.
Alexandra took English courses at IELS, a renowned language school in Malta. The dedicated and experienced teachers at IELS played a pivotal role in building her confidence and encouraging her to speak English as much as possible. Alexandra described her English courses in Malta: “At IELS the lessons are designed to motivate you and keep you actively involved in learning. Lessons include activities such as group work, role plays, class discussions and mini projects. Teachers did not only correct my mistakes along the way but also provided valuable guidance to help me improve…and that meant a lot to me.”
