Exciting and something new
I really liked the classes with Bill and Mary. We had many opportunities to speak freely, and we also learnt about some Maltese history. On some days, we went outdoors for our lessons, and I thought that it was great that we could go out of the classroom. It was exciting and something new for most of us. Lastly, I would like to give a special thanks to Mary because she was wonderful!"
