Meet your host family: Nicole in Malta

Learning English with Nicole (booking is available for non-French students only)

Hi! My name is Nicole. I'm a science teacher at a local school. I've been also teaching English for nine years. I live in the quiet village of Gharghur - right at the centre of Malta. I would love to host students to make my home more alive during summer vacations - at my family home, we used to welcome students from all over the world. We would also explore our tiny island together and go to the best places in Malta.

I have two young and playful cats, which like to chase each other in the corridor or look out the balcony at stray cats roaming the fields just across the street. As for myself, I do Kung Fu and enjoy playing the piano.

Visit 3: Hagar Qim and Mnajdra megalithic temples built between 3600-3200 BC. These prehistoric temples are also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Visit 4: Mdina, the fortified, medieval capital city situated at the center of the island.
Extra activities: Swimming, hiking and watching films in English. In the summer, we go to the village feasts to see the fireworks display.

English will be the only spoken language. I do not host people of the same nationality and gender unless they are friends or family who would like to travel together. Children will be supervised at all times.

Proposed activities:

Your Maltese immersion experience :
A typical day with us

First thing in the morning, you can enjoy a breakfast of your liking. There is cereal, fruit, bread, jam, and Nutella to choose from. After breakfast and a cup of refreshing coffee or tea, we get to work. We have several hours dedicated to English practice (taking breaks as we need, of course). We can adjust the program's intensity and focus based on your needs. For example, if you want to improve your conversation skills, we will focus on speaking and communication.

After the lessons, I cook a healthy and nutritious lunch, and you will have the afternoon to yourself. You can explore the neighborhood - it's a cute traditional village with narrow, cobbled streets and an old church in the center. Just a 10-minute walk away is one of the best viewing spots in Malta, called 'the Top of the World,' and the start of the iconic 'Victoria Lines' trail. You can also explore other parts of the country - a bus to the historic capital city Valletta leaves right from the doorstep and takes about 40 minutes.

In the evening, it's dinner time! You can taste some traditional Maltese flavors like fresh fish, local cheeses, and Mediterranean spices. If you're vegetarian or vegan, we tweak the recipes to accommodate you. You can spend the rest of the day relaxing or doing your homework (if you haven't already). We can also meet other students at my family home for some joint activities.

Ces deux semaines passées cet été à Malte ont été très profitables aussi bien au niveau des cours d'anglais, que de la découverte du pays et des rencontres diversifiées faites là-bas. Malte est une île magnifique, son histoire , ses traditions, ses vestiges, et ses belles côtes m'ont ébloui. Et cela grâce aux activités et visites organisées par Nicole et sa famille. J'ai été très bien accueillie chez Nicole, très sympathique et prête à tout pour rendre le séjour agréable à chacun des jeunes qu'elle reçoit, selon leurs goûts. Alors merci Nicole pour tout, c'était parfait. Je recommande vivement , Nicole est l'hôte idéale que vous recherchez !

Notre fille de 15ans a passé 1 semaine chez Nicole, et elle est revenue très ravie de son séjour ! Un séjour parfait. Nicole est une personne charmante et adorable, beaucoup de disponibilité et s'adapte à ses invités, en fonction de leurs envies et de leur alimentation aussi. Son appartement est très accueillant et agréable avec une chambre pour chacun. Elle privilégie les moments de partage en anglais entre personnes de nationalité différente (il y avait en même temps une jeune hongroise). Les cours d'anglais sont très "pros" et les visites au top et bien rythmées. L'ambiance était joyeuse après les cours très sérieux d'anglais. Merci Nicole pour ta personnalité, ta joie de vivre et ton sens de l'accueil !

Cours d'anglais très "pros", visite de la ville, des curiosités et des merveilles à voir, comme par exemple la grotte bleue... Surtout une ambiance joyeuse et juvénile après les studieuses études. Merci Nicole de ton charisme avec les jeunes et la manière de faire découvrir ton merveilleux pays !
