ACE ENGLISH MALTA
“it is not just an English Language Course.... ...but also an experience”
The Maltese Archipelago lies virtually in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, some 93kms south of the Italian island of Sicily. Yet Malta is just a few hours flying time from most mainland European cities and has excellent intercontinental connections. Choose from scheduled services or charter flights, many of which offer a convenient departure point from European regional cities. The Maltese Islands offer an exhilarating contrast of colours: the azure of the Mediterranean, the mellow honey-coloured limestone which characterises the architecture and the clear skies. The Islands are a feast for the senses. Nightlife on the Islands is always bustling, there are a number of clubs to visit, excellent wine bars and first-rate restaurants to try.
