Why is Maltese an important language to learn?

Hidden treasures are everywhere in Malta, which means that you can spend your days there discovering prehistoric temples, historic watchtowers, museums filled with figures and sculptures, cliffs lined with fossils that lead to hidden coves, and water filled with anything and everything that you can imagine. There are more than four hundred thousand people living in Malta and they can all speak Maltese fluently. This may not seem like a large number to you, but once you add in the large number of expats there that can also speak the language, you will find that learning this language is a must do for everyone.

The good news is that you can learn just the basics before traveling to this region, because everyone that lives there also speaks English. The locals will welcome you with open arms, as long as they know that you are trying to learn their language and they will help you become more proficient in it. If you choose not to learn how to speak Maltese, the locals will think that you are acting standoffish, and this is frowned upon there.
