Interview with Glenda Gonzalez Ruiz, Sales & Marketing Manager of Inlingua Malta : “Language tourism in Malta is very essential for the economy”

Glenda Gonzalez Ruiz, Sales & Marketing Manager, Inlingua Malta

Why would a student choose your school?

Our school was the first on the island in 1980 and since then we have been focused on providing the best English programmes with qualified teachers, and the best student nationality mix. Location is very convenient surrounded by beaches and all the amenities for the stay of the students.

 

In your opinion, what are the main benefits for a student to study abroad?

I came to Malta from Venezuela in 2014 and studied for 11 months at inlingua, until now it has been one the best experience in my life, you will meet people from all over the world, you will learn about their culture, history, gastronomy, it is like travelling to different countries but you are in an English classroom learning a new language with other students that are in the same level of learning something completely new. if you are learning for a long period you will miss your family, friends, your country, your food but you will appreciate it more when you come back but having new friends from different countries that then you will visit and practice your new language with them.

 

How do you see the future of language tourism?

Malta has become one of the 6th destinations to learn English. Language tourism in Malta is very essential for the economy, since we have around 40 English schools on the island the industry has become very competitive, however, we all try to offer the best experience for them, with regards to courses, accommodation and activities. Malta is growing everyday in the tourism sector and many changes have been made in order to improve their stays and I think it will continue growing in the same way despite Covid situation.

 

What types of courses do you think will be most in demand in the future?

English with Business purpose for an accessible price will be an excellent option in the future, but General English will be still the demanding alternative.
