Courses for adolescents MALTA - Sliema (age 13 - 18)

Tuition:
The programme of this course was developed with particular care to guarantee that the teenagers will spend time in a both enjoyable and productive way. It is synchronised with a leisure programme. The classes take place every day from 9:00 until 12:30 in groups of maximum 10 people. These are 2- or 4-week courses on all levels of proficiency (after at least a year of English learning).

Care :
The school's team of experienced guardians organizes and supervises the whole day's programme and is always ready to listen to individual student's requests. Every Monday the students are invited to an evening integration party during which the newly arrived participants are welcomed by the staff and other students.

Accommodation with a family :
Families, most of which have been hosting students for years, are carefully chosen to guarantee the best atmosphere possible for the students. Most families live in apartments or houses and, if possible, host 2 to 4 students of different nationalities. Students live in double rooms. Most families live in Sliema and the neighbouring districts of St. Julian's, St. Andrew's, Gzira, Swiegi, San Gwann and Ta'xbiex. Students usually go to school on foot, however, you can also use the cheap public transport.

Extracurricular activities:
All students are invited to the welcome party for the newly arrived students every Monday, where they get full information about extracurricular activities in which they can take part and where they meet their peers and the school's staff. Two-week courses include a full day trip to Gozo (Easter course) or an evening boat trip (with music) to the Comino Island (summer course), a full day trip round the Malta Island and an evening disco every week. Moreover two other interesting possibilities for spending free time are offered free of charge every week. These may be a trip to a glass factory, karaoke, sports, trips to interesting sights such as Valletta or Mdina. Sports are on offer every day: football, volleyball, visits to sandy beaches allow for spending the time actively. The students of 3 or 4 week courses have a right to a half-day trip, a disco and two additional activities every week. All of the above mentioned activities take place under close surveillance of the guardians.
