Learning English at EC Malta
Hello there, welcome to EC Malta. My name’s Keith and I’m the Director of Studies here. Well, I can assure you that everyone here wants you to have the best possible time whilst with us on this island. You know learning English, it goes beyond being in the classroom, which is, of course, fundamental, but language should be there to help you live, to experience things and be able to communicate. So I’m here to give you a couple of tips that will hopefully help you make use of the English you learn in the classroom.
Make friends with international students
First of all, I would say that you need to make friends with people of different nationalities. What normally happens is that students make friends with people that come from the same country and this does not allow them to speak the language, does not allow them to speak English, so make friends with as many people as possible and speak English. Use the verbs, the words that the teacher helps you learn in the classroom.
Join our English school activities
Secondly I would definitely recommend going out on activities. We organise a lot of activities here. We have a very, very vast programme and this will allow you to, first of all, make friends with other people so you won’t feel lonely and again practise your English because the only language you can use to communicate with our tour guides, with your friends, with people out in the streets, well that’s only English. So yes, definitely go out on activities.
Live like a local English speaker
Finally, I would definitely say that you need to in some way replicate your life back at home, and by that I mean to carry out your daily tasks, go to the supermarket, go to the bakers, go to the cinema, go out for a drink, go out for coffee, and speak English. Speak to the locals, speak to the waiters, to the stackers at the supermarket. Try to use English as much as possible because what you learn in the classroom can only be truly learned if you live it outside of the classroom.
So that’s my best recommendation for you. So honestly what are you waiting for? Just make sure you come here and you start learning English with us. We’re all looking forward to meeting you.
