Glenda Gonzalez Ruiz, Sales and Marketing Manager of Inlingua Malta

Why would a student choose his school?

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

 

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

I came to Malta from Venezuela in 2014 and studied for 11 months at inlingua, so far it has been one of the best experiences in my life, you will meet people from all over the world, you will learn about their culture, history, gastronomy, it’s like travelling to different countries but you are in an English classroom learning a new language with other students who are at 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 you will then visit and practice your new language with them.

 

How do you see the future of language tourism?

Malta has become one of the 6th most popular destinations for learning English. Language tourism in Malta is very essential to the economy, as we have around 40 English language 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 every day in the tourism sector and many changes have been made to improve their stays and I believe it will continue to grow in the same way despite the Covid situation.

 

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

Business English for an affordable price will be an excellent choice in the future, but General English will remain the demanding alternative.

You’ll also be able to pick up conversational language you wouldn’t study in class. By immersing yourself in another culture, you develop valuable life skills needed for personal growth. But of course, you get to see the world and experiences different ways of living.

 

How do you see the future of language tourism?

The future of language tourism, to me personally, will only keep growing, for as long as we have people, we will students wanting and needing to learn languages. Globally, in 2020, we have lived through a pandemic which has hit our industry hard massively halting nearly all international travel. But, we will come through this and see business return as normal and the demand increase.

 

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

2020 has seen a year like no other and has changed how we have operated on a day to day basis with the world moving online and for EC with great success. I think the demand for face to face learning with never go and will still be most in demand in my opinion but i think online classes courses will continue to grow and be hugely popular.

Interview with Karl Sammut, Sales and Marketing Director of Gateway School of English: “Students not only learn the language but also get to see the world’s diversity.”

Karl Sammut, Sales and Marketing Director, Gateway School of English

 

Why would a student choose your school?

Great mix of nationalities, GSE is very well known for having a lot of different nationalities in both classrooms as well as bedrooms.
Excellent academic team that is dedicated, professional and sees the specific needs of each and every student.
Accommodation right next to the school, only 2 minutes from bedroom to classroom; both the school and residence are located in an elegant and peaceful villa area in St Julian’s only 12 minutes’ walk from St Julian’s bay – Malta’s most popular tourist area with plenty of cafes , restaurants and hotels.

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

Students not only learn the language but also get to see the world’s diversity which will help them in their future careers especially in a world that is becoming more globalised and international. The fact that students study in an international environment also helps them to acquire communicative skills which will certainly help them in their future workplaces and their dealings with international colleagues, customers and clients.
For the younger students who travel individually this is an opportunity to experience a certain degree of independence from their parents and thus grow as a more independent person having to fend for oneself while abroad.

How do you see the future of language tourism?

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic I think the language travel industry remains resilient and students of all ages would still want to travel for a language course post pandemic. I believe language travel is a lifetime experience that students cherish and remember for the rest of their lives.

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

Business English and Professional English courses especially English for specific purposes such as Aviation English, Legal English, Medical English, English for Tourism and other ESP courses.

We have also seen an increase in demand for Exam preparation courses such as IELTS and TOEFL for employment purposes or university admission.

Studying abroad involves new acquaintances and the emergence of new useful connections.
You can get a job before graduation.
Nobody imposes the learning process itself.
It is possible to travel inside the new country , and more

How do you see the future of language tourism?

I think that as soon as the issue of free movement becomes more or less settled, students will go to explore new countries again.Having meetings (online, unfortunately), many agents are enthusiastically asking about 2022, when, hopefully, most countries will have free access to the vaccine.Another question to which we do not yet have answers, unfortunately, how will the movement of children under 16 will take place.

But, otherwise, I think there will be no changes. And the industry will return to the level of 2019.

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

In my opinion, the IELTS preparation will be popular , as IELTS is requeated for all Higher Education institutions. Business English will still have its place in future. As after Covid- 19 time , I quess, the business became even more global with all Zoom meetings availibility.
