Inspire Fest by Nutella
Can you think of anyone who doesn’t love Nutella? Of course not – this chocolate-and-hazelnut dream is the perfect treat after a long week of learning, so why not hit this event and enjoy a variety of food items made with Nutella? The best part about this local event is that entrance is free, but you can make a donation at the door in aid of Inspire, a Maltese charity helping those with a disability by encouraging equality, inclusion, and education.
EC Exclusive: Sicily Excursion
Just a catamaran-ride away from Malta, the mesmerizing island of Sicily is the perfect place to spend the day before hitting another awesome week of learning English in Malta. Expect to see sparkling Mediterranean sea, breath-taking mountain scenery, and unmistakably Sicilian local cuisine.
