Make friends and practise English with other language learners through our weekly leisure programme.
You can either choose from our ESE organised activities which are included in our weekly ESE leisure programme or ask one of leisure team members for advice about other activities you may wish to book.
Adult Leisure Social Programme
When creating your leisure package, our leisure staff focus on offering you a balanced mix of cultural excursions, visits to places of historical importance and exciting leisure activities. Whether you are looking for adventure and prefer some of our extreme sports or are more of a culture vulture preferring guided tours around Malta’s historical sites and visits to local museums, we guarantee you will feel looked after all of the way.
We believe that your social programme is an integral part of a successful language learning experience. Social activities bring non-English speaking people of different nationalities and cultures together and provide you with the perfect opportunity to practise speaking English with them in a relaxed and informal environment.
Students who have booked a language course with ESE can check our Student Zone which gives a detailed overview of upcoming events and activities.
If you require more information or would like to book optional excursions please email us at [email protected], or while in Malta please ask our staff at the ESE Leisure Desk when you are on your language course in Malta – they will be only so happy to help you.
Your Orientation Walk
On your first day you are invited to attend an informative orientation walk. You will be shown around the Paceville area, become familiar with the location of bus stops, taxi stands, banks, the post office, and pharmacies and be given other useful information. As you stroll through the streets of Paceville, our guide will offer some handy tips on which restaurants in the area offer good value for money, which tend to be more expensive and which establishments serve fast food. You are welcome to ask our guide for any other information you may require.
Your Welcome Evening
During the first week of your English course, you are invited to an ESE evening activity to meet other students and some of our staff members. Light refreshments are served.
Half Day Guided Tour of Valletta – Malta’s Capital City
Valletta was officially recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980 and was described as “a city of palaces built by gentlemen for gentlemen” by Sir Walter Scott. Valletta has lots for you to marvel at: The Palace of the Grandmasters, now used as the President’s Palace and St John’s Co-Cathedral, are just two majestic buildings worthy of special mention. The Valletta bastions offer spectacular views of the Grand Harbour, one of the finest harbours in Europe. Free admission to the Malta Experience Audio-Visual show is also included in the Valletta tour. The show will give you an overview of Malta’s rich history.
Access to ESE Beach Club – St Julian’s (Seasonal)
Your package includes free entrance to the ESE Adult Beach Club during the summer season from Monday to Friday. The Beach Club is about a ten-minute walk away from the main ESE School and is situated at the St.Julians Waterpolo Club. If you would like to use the Beach Club during the weekend and on Public Holidays, you may buy entrance tickets from the Beach Club at a reduced price on presentation of your ESE student card.
