Overall
Doing my stance in Malta at EF School, I could improve my English but not as good as I wish it. It was a great School, but at the same time I think that it was not very well organized. We were divided in different groups depending on each level. But the problem was that I wasn't belong the level I was suposed to be. I told to the organization about my problem and they moved me to another level at the second week. In the end as I said before it was a helpful experience for me; nowadays my English is quite more fluent and I also got the opportunity to be familiar with other different cultures. That is why now I can define  my profile much more international than before I had this abroad experience.

Overall
Ef Malta was the worst chose of my life that will cost me a lot of student depths for nothing, not only to pay a massive fee for a school that gives u an education in slow motion and childlike learning. I don't really know where to start, E was the first official that I met, and he is literally crazy, many girls are afraid off him, because he dos not knock, and if a girl is standing shirtless he won't bother to turn his head around, he will be looking straight at you. Many girls are very concerned about his next move, he asked for girls numbers and many other things that made a lot of people uncomfortable especially younger girls. NOBODY TRUSTS OR LIKE HIM, so if you have a massive problem there is no one with authority to turn to because the one with authority is the one that they are afraid of at night. The only one at the school that is casually listening to your needs is the principal. 
Its all about money for them, every trip, everything. the cleaning ladies have to work 7 days a week, and EF don't care about that, and that they don't care is horrible. They had new cleaning ladies every month because so many couldn't take the pressure. 
The school is a way to expensive for their learning programs, the teachers have big problems with pronunciation, and sometimes even grammar, especially in classes that are lower than a B2 level. They also say that Malta is an English speaking country, which it's not really, people have very poor English speaking skills, so I had to go to England after 3 months to finish my 6 months of grade because my high English level didn't get any better in Malta. 
If you want to change classes or upgrade to a higher level, there is no way that anyone will help you ever. The receptionist "P" hasn't smiled since the 18 hundred century, S or is always "beach" facing everyone and the sales office in your country probably lied and lied and lied all and all over again. 
Malta is a poor choose but I think that Ef is even worst, chose other cheaper schools next time. There is a lot more to tell, but I don't have time, for example when a teacher was my weed dealer, but I liked that guy so I won't mansion any names. 
The school was not about learning but about, money party and tourism in Malta

Overall
The EF are a good an helpful school. Befor you leave, you do a test to check your English level. You can choos a lot of preference to get your individually lessons. If you  think you can move up your level, you can do a Test. If you passed it, you can change the class. You have enough freetime to spend it with friends or EF-activitys.
