Language teaching federation backs raising drinking age

teach-English-in-Malta.jpgThe Federation of English Language Teaching Organisations in Malta (FELTOM) said today that it agreed with the proposal by the Children’s Commissioner to raise the drinking age threshold to 18 years.

"FELTOM has long argued that increasing the safety of minors should always be a priority. Increasing the drinking age threshold to 18 years is therefore a step in the right direction," it said.

It said that over the years it had taken a number of initiatives to limit the accessibility of minors studying English in Malta to alcohol at events and organises weekly non-alcoholic events at venues away from Paceville. These events are very well received by the students themselves, it said.
