Active Learning, Activities & Free Time

The Maltese islands, located at the heart of the Mediterranean, offer a perfect setting for unforgettable experiences that revolve around the sun, sea, and swimming. At our school, we have curated an active learning program that not only encompasses these exhilarating activities but also includes cultural excursions and entertaining evenings, ensuring a well-rounded and engaging experience for our students.

To kickstart the adventure, we organise a welcome dinner that sets the tone for the exciting weeks ahead. Our programme includes boat trips to Comino Island and the stunning Blue Lagoon on weekends, where students can immerse themselves in crystal-clear waters and marvel at the breathtaking surroundings. Additionally, students have free access to the use of Beach Club (weather permitting), where they can unwind, soak up the sun, and make lasting memories with their newfound friends.

To add more excitement to the evenings, we organise junior parties filled with music, laughter, and entertainment. Students can let loose, dance the night away, and create lasting memories with their peers. Additionally, our students have the opportunity to attend the highly anticipated Isle of MTV annual concert, where they can experience the vibrant music scene and enjoy performances by renowned artists.

For sports enthusiasts, we organise football, beach volleyball, tennis or table tennis tournaments, and treasure hunt tournaments and encourage friendly competition and teamwork spirit. We also organise many outdoor games, i.e. obstacle courses, ball games etc. Our recreational games and hunts encourage friendly competition, encourage breaking the ice and help make friends in a relaxed and fun environment. Students can show off their skills, participate in friendly games, and create unforgettable moments outside of the classroom.

For those who want an adrenaline rush, we include exciting activities like 'Banana' boat rides or crazy sofa ride as part of our watersports activities on the beach of Mellieha. Whilst on the beach, there is also an option to try kayaking, snorkeling and more (if not included in the programme). You would simply speak to our staff so that it can get organised for additional fee. While motorised activities may incur additional service and fuel charges, we negotiate low rates to ensure an exciting and affordable experience. Please note that parental consent is required for these activities and there is also a minimum age for certain watersports activities. Safety is our main priority.

At Maltalingua, we believe that learning English goes beyond the classroom. That’s why we offer varied programme of activities so you can explore the best of what Malta has to offer. Our guided tour takes you to Malta’s greatest historical and cultural landmarks, immersing you in the island’s warm climate and fascinating stories, from wandering the ancient streets of Valletta to exploring the fortified city of Mdina and uncovering the secrets of the Three Cities, every step is a journey into Malta's rich history.

Of course, no visit to Malta is complete without seeing its stunning coastline. We will take you to Golden Bay and Paradise Bay, where you can relax, swim in crystal clear waters and soak up the Mediterranean sun. In the summer months, we also do weekly meetings at our Beach Club to ensure endless fun and relaxation.

We understand the importance of free time, so we offer one free afternoon and one evening and a full day on Sundays for students aged 13 to 17 years. In the meantime, you can explore the island with your friends or participate in optional activities that we can arrange for you for additional charge. Feel free to ask us for recommendations as we have so many fun things to do on the island.

We are dedicated to ensuring that your time in Malta is not only educational but full of adventure, cultural exploration, and that you have the opportunity to create lifelong memories. Our wide range of activities and excursions, in addition to our high-quality language instruction, provide an immersive and rewarding experience that goes beyond traditional language learning.
