This insular state lies further south than many north African cities and so you can expect to have nice weather and optimum conditions for outdoor activities during your stay in Malta. A fascinating, somewhat bizarre landscape, picturesque villages, impressive fortresses, palaces and churches invite you to gain new experiences alongside your internship. Thanks to the good, economical bus connections, you can also explore the island well in the afternoons. Up until 1964 Malta was an English colony, meaning that English is an official language alongside Maltese. The island is a secret tip for those who wish to learn English by combining a language course and an internship, without missing out on the good weather.
Most internships in this programme are conducted within the area of administration or hospitality industry. Nevertheless, you can wish for other areas in your application and we will do our best to fulfil your wish. Through the internship you will not only collect the first impressions of working in Malta, but also gain important professional and personal experiences.
You decide if you want to participate in a preparatory language course before starting your internship. PractiGo recommends you to do so in order to improve your language skills and at the same time get settled in your new hometown.
In the language school you will not only learn the language but also meet a lot of new people to spend your free time with. You will also be able to participate in out of school activities through your language school and in that way get to know the city and its surroundings better.
During your stay you will live with a host family. This will give you the chance to get to know how people in Ireland live and to further improve your English speaking skills. You will have your own room and be provided with breakfast and dinner.
