Where is Sliema?
Sliema is on the northeast coast of Malta, in the Mediterranean. Once a small fishing village, Sliema has grown over the years and is now just about touching the neighbouring resort town of St Julian’s, so together these form Malta’s top tourist resort. Even though there are many language travel students and tourists visiting the town throughout the year, the permanent population of Sliema is actually very small, with only around 13,000 people living here year round.

When you’ve stocked up on caffeine you can hit the streets and make the most of Sliema’s great reputation for shopping. There are designer labels here, as well as everyday, affordable brands too. The promenade is also a great place to sit and chat; bring your laptop down and use the wireless internet that’s available here, plus there are several rocky beaches where you can sunbathe and swim.
Study Abroad in Sliema and enjoy the great weather!
Like the rest of Malta the official languages spoken in Sliema are English and Maltese, and with many more English speaking people coming to Sliema for holidays you can really immerse yourself in the language here. Usefully, the currency used in Sliema (and Malta as a whole) is the Euro.

Sliema’s warm Mediterranean climate!
One of the reasons why Sliema is such a popular choice for a foreign language course is the weather. Situated in the Mediterranean Sea, the climate of Sliema is mild to warm throughout the year.
