It’s my fifth time at GV Malta.

Why do I keep coming back?

The answer is quite simple. Every time I study here I find a lot of support from administration.They help me to find a course that is suitable for my needs. There is flexibility at GV Malta, I feel very comfortable during each visit to know that I can choose additional lessons or change courses during my stay. I have studied General English, Business English, Conversation English and had private lessons with various teachers. My teachers at GV Malta are always well prepared, very friendly and professionnal.
During every private lesson, I can opt to cover subjects that are important for me or related to my profession. The school is equipped with up-to-date technology.
The school organizes various activities both during the week and at the weekend, namely cultural and sociable.

The atmosphere at GV Malta is family-friendly and very welcoming. Everyone gets to know each other. This medium-sized school is located near the see and close to all amenities. I have met so many interesting people from so many different countries and this was a great experience for me. I'm still in touch with a good number of these students.
I feel I have to say thank to all GV Malta students and staff for this great experience.
