At QSI Malta, communication is both receptive and expressive. Our teachers are skilled at listening to their students as well as explaining things clearly. Each educator is able to break down complex ideas into simpler parts and smaller steps to transmit to their students. They are also able to adapt their methods of communication to all students regardless of ability or learning style. Here in Malta educators are able to "read" their students and adapt to the needs of the individual. Effective communication includes transforming the boring into the interesting and having good presentation skills.
In addition, teachers at QSI Malta communicate concern and caring by their tone of voice and use of body language. They transmit genuine commitment and affection for their students. Our instructors care about their students' progress and let their students know it at all times. They also learn their students' names early in the school year and use their names when addressing them. Furthermore, our facilitators communicate their appreciation for what their students do by celebrating their successes and constantly encouraging them. This helps students feel recognized and validated.
