At the Cavendish School of English in Malta we are blessed in abundance. Not only do we have a modern educational environment, providing the kind of materials and equipment in airy, bright classrooms that you would expect to find in an efficient 21st century language school, but we are also privileged to be housed in an elegant baroque building which dates back to the 18th century and sits among many of its kind in this beautiful, compact city. We are also blessed with a complement of teachers, whose sole purpose is to give our students the most effective and complete learning experience possible.
We have developed a timetable and itinerary which not only provides our students with the time they need in the classroom environment, but also provides them with the stimulus to use their language skills where it really matters: in the world beyond the classroom walls! Again we are blessed to be on an Island which enjoys so much history, folklore, nightlife and a wonderful climate. Therefore, every Friday, when we hold our Conversation club, we are able to offer our students the opportunity to practice their English whilst visiting beautiful places, such as Mdina – Malta’s medieval capital city and one of the oldest walled cities in Europe, Marsaxlokk – a colourful fishing village, Hagar Qim – a complex of ancient temples dating back to the pe-historic period, Limestone Heritage Park & Gardens – a unique and tranquil environment dedicated to the crafts & craftsmen whose created our Islands beautiful heritage. These are just a few of the fabulous places we visit with our students during their stay with us.
All of these are just some of the wonders of these small but very interesting Islands. When students take a language course with us, they will enjoy conversation time with their teacher and schoolmates that is complemented with a social activity like the types mentioned above, specifically for the purpose of promoting dialogue, Friday mornings are set aside especially for this purpose. But also on a week night the teachers offer an ‘extra’ get-together where again any of the aforementioned activities can take place.
