Word for the Travel Wise (10/03/06)

Malta FlagIt's quite obvious Malta isn't one of our most blogged about places, but I do my best with this word feature to make sure it gets some of the action. However, I have been providing with you baby talk. It's time to rev up our language motors and really start talking Maltese. Now hit the gas and GO!

Today's word is a Maltese word used in Malta:

Jien jisimni... - My name is...

BBC Languages Quick Fix allows one to download essential holiday phrases like this to store in your mp3 player for the big trip ahead. You can hear audio of some very basic words on their site as well. For a full run down on the history and a thorough section on survival Maltese head over to I'm not too certain how much the survival Maltese will be needed considering the country's other official lang happens to be English and they happen to have around 40 English learning language schools.

Past Maltese words:
Fejn huma t-tojlezz?, sahha, xorb
