My experience related to the English Language Schools only although one of


the persons we spoke to did say this was a general thing unless the ‘other


nationality’ had some skill which was in short supply in Malta.   In a


country the size of Malta I think this is no bad thing.   I should say the


way I summarised the situation makes it sound as if we were treated rather


harshly.   Nothing could be further from the truth we were treated very


courteously and the the advice was given to save my friend from ‘wasting his


time’.

This point was not uppermost in our minds but the impression I gained was


any Maltese Passport Holder would be treated as if they lived on the Island.
