    General English

    Rated 5 out of 5

    The first positive impression comes when you arrive at the hotel after a tiring flight and enter a chilled out atmosphere, introduced by the nostalgic purple colours of the interior and the ambient lighting and music. The next day, you find out how convenient the hotel is - it's close to the school and to all the city's sights.

    The hotel staff is very helpful, friendly and attentive at all times. Any questions you have are answered quickly. Back to the interior - at first, the design looks surreal - lots of staircases and halls with sofas and cushions, but that's interesting! You feel like you are Alice in Wonderland!

    The rooms are spacious, light and clean and the food - I'd like to mention the food especially - it is much more superior than a typical 3-star quality - I'd give it at least 4 stars! Special thanks to the cooks! There's a really wide menu, which caters for every taste, all the food is fresh and is definitely prepared with love!

    All the hotel staff, from housekeeping and receptionists to managers take a lot of care in everything they do.

    If it were in my power, I would definitely give the hotel another star to make it four! :)

    The excursions which were arranged through the LAL leisure department were just wonderful! The tourist guides did a great job and made everything informative, interesting, which gave us another opportunity to practise English both actively and passively.

    Special thanks to the leisure department manager, Diana, who has also been very positive, active and helpful! We didn't know she was so good at pool and other games! :)

    The school's packed lunches (sandwiches) have also been good! They were freshly made with lots of vegetables and fruit!

    To sum up, me, myself and my students felt really positive throughout our stay, which will help us during the cold winters in Russia - we'll have beautiful memories of our sunny days in Malta with LAL!

    I have been in Malta for 6 weeks and it has been the best time of my life. At first the country appears to be too small, but really there is so much to do and a lot to see. There are people from all over the world so you can practice your English all day long.

    IELS school has made my life easier in Malta. The lessons are so much fun so my English improves a lot. The people from the staff, like the teachers, managers, reception, leisure and welfare are the nicest people I have ever met in these kind of schools.

    Many thanks for the great time, especially for the teachers who taught us very well. It was instructive all the time, helped me to improve my English knowledge and we learned with fun. It was made perfect by the many beautiful and interesting tours we took in Devon and Cornwall so I could combine my English study with holidays in a good way.

    Intensive English

    Rated 5 out of 5

    I really enjoyed studying English at this school. I had a great time in Malta. Class sizes were small, so I could ask a question anytime I wanted to. There are two points which made LAL perfect for me: firstly that I could change classes anytime I wanted to if I felt it was too easy or too hard and secondly that there are few Japanese students in Malta, so I could be completely immersed in English. The LAL staff and teachers are all really friendly too. Thank you!

    Rated 4 out of 5

    I have been Malta for 6 months and it has been a great time. I booked an academic year programme and it was really good value for money. The school offers a lot of facilities and activities. There are also many kinds of courses to choose from, such as general English, Intensive English, TOEFL, Cambridge Exams, Business English, etc. My teacher really cares about us, what we are thinking about and what we ar interested in, which motivates and encourages us to study. All IELS staff are like friends. Whenever you need them they are there to help you. My experience in Malta has been an enjoyable combination of studying and entertainment in a safe and relaxed Mediterranean country.
