I'm very excited because I won the Sprachcaffe scholarship for an English course and this summer I'm going to Malta! Let me share with you more about the course I'm going to take, other language courses and locations offered by Sprachcaffe and how I won the scholarship.
1 English Course in St. Julians, Malta
I'm going to take a 4-week intensive English course. And honestly everything about it sounds pretty amazing, I'm gonna have the opportunity to:
a. Develop my English skills: this will allow me to grow professionally because I'm a Spanish native speaker and I need to have a perfect English at my work. Besides that the next step in my career is to study a Masters degree at a university in the United States so I need to improve my English skills the most I can.
b. Have a placement test and receive a certificate of attendance: at the beginning of the course I'll measure my current level of English with a placement test and at the end I'll receive a certificate of attendance. Moreover, I'll have excellent professors and high quality material.
c. Make friends from all around the world: this courses are characterized for being taken by students from different parts of the world. I'm sure I'm going to meet very interesting people who will share their culture and experiences.
d. Discover Malta: I've never been to Malta before and I'm very excited to walk across its streets, take the sun at the beach, and enjoy its history, culture, exhibitions, music, theater, sports, and nightlife.
e. Discover other European countries: Sicily is very close by ferry and at the end of the course I'm also planing to visit some friends in Spain and make a quick Euro-trip.
