The Maltese language has always been a big part of my life. It was always spoken to me but I would always reply back in English. Since my late teenage years, I had this urge to want to go and learn the language in depth. I looked up Maltese community language schools, but never really had the courage to put my name down. After my third visit to Malta, I decided to bite the bullet and just do it.
I have been learning the Maltese language since October of 2013. My conversational skills have improved immensely. My vocabulary has grown a heap. I pride myself on my reading and writing. It strengthens my connection with Malta and my Maltese identity here in Australia.
One part of our homework given to us by our teacher, is a different topic each week, where we write a few sentences or paragraphs in Maltese. The idea of it is to create conversations with family and/or friends around you to help you write up something.
I take so much pride in my writing so much, I decided to share some them on my blog in hope that these pieces of random writings may inspire someone else who feels a lack of confidence in Maltese and are umming and arring whether or not to take up Maltese lessons. You don’t have to know it to the extent your parents or grandparents do. You don’t even have to know any!
Anything is possible, so long as you put your mind to it. Mela ejja ħa noħodlok moħok bil-Malta ukoll 😛
