“The Malta Summer School offers a unique opportunity to acquire some ‘in the field’ experience. The islands of Malta present a perfect balance of past and present: a fascinating legacy of European culture and rural Mediterranean traditions presented to the eye in the living history of its fishing villages. Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, Malta possesses a typical island culture. As a result of its location, at the crossroads of maritime routes between Europe, Africa and Asia, Malta has always been strategically important. Many different cultures have set foot on the islands, leaving their unique imprints which are still visible to this very day. These foreign influences can be seen for instance in the Maltese language; an interesting fusion of Arabic and other languages. At the same time, Malta has a perfectly English-speaking population.”
