A warm welcome, caring environment and immersion into the English language are just a few things that host family accommodation offers. The ideal choice for young students, host family accommodation gives visitors the opportunity to experience our lifestyle at first-hand and get an insight into our culture and traditions.
Our caring host families provide our young students with the additional security of a home atmosphere and the chance to share their new experiences with students from a different linguistic and cultural background. For 25 years, Alpha School of English has provided quality accommodation to thousands of foreign students including school children, university students and professionals wishing to experience the Maltese way of life at an affordable price.
Our host families are warm, welcoming, open-minded people who take both pride and pleasure in sharing their knowledge of the English language as well as our history and culture. Indeed, many of our host families have established long-term friendships with our students which continue after our students have returned home.
Most of our host families are located in the St Paul’s Bay area for easy access to our language school, local attractions and the sandy beaches in the vicinity. Throughout the year our Accommodation Department works closely with our host families and regularly updates our host family register. We do our best to match students with suitable families according to individual preferences, and we can also provide digital photos of all host family homes. Our Accommodation Officer regularly visits and inspects all host families.

Host family was helpful!
