Magdalena Kasperowicz-Swanson, Marketing Operations Executive, Berlitz Language Centre Malta
Why would a student choose your school?
Berlitz Malta is the most centrally located school in Malta. Students do not need to travel locally and they do not have any extra expenses to travel, either. We understand language as a tool for communication and focus on high percentage speaking time. All instructors are native speakers and use a conversational approach to engage the students in speaking in the target language only from day one. Only by speaking students will be able to communicate in the new language quickly. We prepare our students how to communicate in real life situations. All exercises and discussions are based on current topics which students can refer to. We enable our students to gain confidence and feel comfortable communicating in an international and a global environment.
In your opinion, what are the main benefits for a student to study abroad?
Malta is considered as one of the best English learning environments in Europe due to the English speaking nation, the beautiful location, the holiday feel climate and the friendliness of its people. Malta as multicultural English speaking country gives the students an extra kick of motivation to practice their language skills after schools hours while exploring the Island, staying with English speaking family or at a hotel and meeting new people.
