It’s true! A student is going on a trip to Malta next month. In her English lesson last week, she told me she was going to Italy for a week tour. She told me she is going to Malta, which she explained was a small Italian island located just off the tip of the Italian “boot”. At her English lesson this week, she came in, sat down, and apologized (in excellent English, as if she had reviewed a Smith’s English lesson about apologizing1). She explained to me that she had made a mistake, telling me that Malta in a part of Italy, when in fact it is a seperate country, albeit a little one. Furthermore, last week she was worried because she doesn’t speak any Italian, but now she is relieved, as she researched and found out that the official language in Malta is English. So I’m looking forward to hearing all about her adventures in Malta (NOT Italy). As usual with all the students at Smith’s school of English Otsu, she will be writing a diary during (or after) her trip and we will be posting it online for everyone to read, along with beautiful travel picture of Malta and the Mediterranean.
