The experience is mostly positive. Thank you for your help in booking and accompanying.
As for learning, it's worth it to go to school to improve listening and speaking skills. What about grammar, although lessons were written and designed to practice this skill, in fact, grammar was paid less attention.
I liked the organization of the training: welcome and farewell activities, the location of the school, the availability of canteens in the territory, the classes themselves and recreation areas. The activity program was also saturated, but I investigated Malta myself, so I can not share my experience. The guys who went on excursions were fully satisfied.
My training lasted a week. As it was expected, a week course duration was not enough, but immersion in the environment still gives results even in such a short period. What you call, you start thinking in English. The only thing that confused was that there was no learning structure. It is not intended for those who arrive for a short time. I had students in my group who were studying for 3 weeks... At the very beginning of the training, the school gave us textbooks, in which there were many topics. One topic was discussed in one lesson. Therefore, if you go for the sake of being in a linguistic environment, for motivating yourself to learn and understand the language, then this is an excellent solution. But if your goals differ, I'm not sure that it will be effective. The tete-a-tete lessons with the teacher, in this case, are more effective.
As for living, I lived in Sliema. I went on foot to school, the road took about 30 minutes, it’s problematic with transport in Malta, so as not to spoil your mood, I would recommend minimizing of using the public transport. Those who lived in St. Julian, complained of the noise. Young people walk in the streets till the morning, so the noise rises all the night. In addition, Slim seemed to be more atmospheric and clean in terms of beaches.
In general, I liked Malta! Very much! Atmospheric, warm, delicious, beautiful places around ... Plus a pretty fast flight from Russia. And because the territory of the island is small, in a short period there is an opportunity to visit many interesting places.
