the atmosphere. All of these things are important for a productive languagelearningexperience. Fortunately Malta has all of these things. Now, I am not generalizing,[…]

7 Reasons Why Teaching In Malta Is The Best Job Ever

Teachers get to stress out over external visits (which are always a surprise, yay!), they have the pleasure of feeling guilty if a student doesn’t grasp a concept, and they get to go over the same lesson in their heads over and over again, wondering where and how it could be improved.

Education is compulsory for all children living in Poland aged between seven and 18, including expats. Children attend kindergarten from the age of around three or five; it is compulsory to attend at least one year of formal education before entering the first grade of primary school no later than the age of seven.
