Leisure & Activities
There is a lot for students to see and do in Malta during their free time and this of course depends on the individuals’ interests. Clubclass offers a weekly leisure programme organised specifically for language students visiting the Maltese Islands; this includes a variety of guided tours, sporting facilities and other activities which could be booked at an extra charge.
Malta’s history boasts of an array of archaeological sites, fortified cities, megalithic temples, monuments and other places of interest. If travelling in the summer months, a dip in our crystal clear waters is a must! One can find beautiful sandy and rocky beaches both in the south and in the north of Malta. St. George’s Bay, St. Julian’s is situated within walking distance from the school.
Paceville – Malta’s main entertainment hub is only a 15 minute walk away from the school. Here one can find a wide range of recreational facilities including cinemas, a bowling alley, restaurants, bars and discotheques. Valletta – the capital city and Sliema are Malta’s major shopping sites and can be easily reached by taking a bus from the bus stop opposite the school.
