    LANGUAGE and LITERATURE
     Contributing Editor: Pierre J. Mejlak
     Contributors: Grazio Falzon, Sergio Grech, Trevor Zahra
    Malta has two official languages, Maltese and English. The English language is a leftover of about 160 years of British colonisation of Malta. Maltese, is the only Semitic language which is written in Roman alphabet. Italian, too, is widely spoken among the younger generation, particularly due to the television programs which are transmitted from nearby Italy. If you don't speak Maltese and are willing to spend sometime with our Survival Maltese you'll find that the Maltese language is interesting enough to make a little effort very worthwhile.
