As well as taking an English course and holiday in Malta, you can also learn about the tradition and culture. Here’s a snippet about the island’s interesting culture.
The ‘Ghonella’ (pronounced as ‘awn-nel-la’) or ‘Faldetta’ is a large black silk shawl, or hooded cloak, and was part of the Maltese women’s Sunday best outfits and uniquely, the national costume until the mid twentieth century. It covered the head in a sort of stiff, starched frame made out of board, cane or whalebone, leaving the face uncovered. From the sixteenth century onwards, noble women and women from more affluent families often wore white or brightly coloured ‘għonnielen’. The origins of the ‘għonnella’ are unknown although legend has it that it was introduced as a sign of mourning. Eventually it faded out in the 1940’s/50’s soon after the Second World War. Today it is only seen at folkloristic events, heritage museums and on postcards
Once again Malta is welcomed a very enthusiastic group of students from Club +50 who not only enjoyed learning English but had a wonderful time exploring the island and meeting students from all over the world. They followed a rich social and cultural programme, allowing them to make friends and gain an invaluable insight into Maltese life. Activities include a Welcome Dinner, guided tours around all the places of interest in Malta and Gozo, as well as Farewell Drinks, after they had been presented with their certificates on their last day of school on the sunny roof.
