Tania AssuncaoTania Assuncao
School Principal

Hello, my name is Tania and I am the School Principal here at Maltalingua. I joined Maltalingua in February 2018 and it’s been a great experience! The team is incredibly friendly and professional, and the students are lovely.

You can find me at reception during break time to answer any questions about your course and experience here at Maltalingua. I am Portuguese, but I’ve lived in different countries, namely Portugal, England, Malta, and Mozambique, and I can speak English, Portuguese, and Spanish. I have been working in the Education sector for 15 years and I have experience in both teaching and academic management.

I really enjoy my job and live by the motto ‘Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.’ I am looking forward to meeting you here at Maltalingua!


Tania AssuncaoKirstie Attard
Assistant Director of Studies

Hi everyone! My name is Kirstie and I’m the Assistant Director of Studies here at Maltalingua. :)

I have been working at Maltalingua since 2015 and I love it. Both the staff and students make the school a wonderful place to work and learn. I love meeting new people from different cultures and teaching people of all ages. I aim to make this experience a fun and interesting one for students and am always ready to help and answer any questions that students may have. When I'm teaching, I aim to make my lessons as fun and as interesting as possible and strive to maintain a relaxed environment in which the students can thrive.

English is my passion, and I have a Masters in Romantic and Victorian English Literary Studies to prove it. I love to read and can always be found with a book in hand. I have also just self-published my first fantasy novel. I love music, the theatre, and appreciating the beautiful island that I come from.


JulianJulian Micallef
Operations Manager

Hi, my name is Julian Micallef and I am the Operations Manager at Maltalingua Language School. My main role at the school is that of the well-being of our students, which means my job is to be there to answer and assist you as well as I can. My responsibilities include running the leisure program for our adult students and managing our student apartments.

I am Maltese and love this little island. Being Maltese gives me the advantage of knowing what to offer our students, whether it is historical sites, day trips to Gozo, or the best parties on the island!

I graduated in Hospitality and Tourism Management and over the past seven years, I have gained invaluable experience working in tourism and various other language schools.

I'm a very active person and am always on the go, which also helps me in my line of work. I love sports and keeping fit. I practice cross-lifting and find that pushing yourself in any sport is not only good for you but beneficial in maintaining a strong self-discipline attitude towards life.

Hello, my name is Ashley Kind, and I am the Head of Marketing at Maltalingua. I am responsible for anything, and everything related to sales and marketing within the school, and I manage a fantastic, talented, and hard-working sales and marketing team. I look after our multiple websites and social media pages whilst always ensuring we are offering you the best offers and prices. I am always keeping a watchful eye on Maltalingua to make sure we are operating at the highest standards at all times.

I am British / Maltese and have been living in Malta since 2007. I joined Maltalingua in 2017 and am very proud of what the school has achieved since it was founded in 2011 and since I joined the team.

I am a graduate of Lincoln University, UK, with a BA Hons in Media Production, and have continued my education within digital marketing over the years.

Outside of work, I am a very proud father, a multi-genre DJ, and into keeping fit,  so on the weekends, you can find me playing with my son during the day, hitting the gym, and spinning groovy tunes at night!

I am normally the first person you will speak to if you are interested in studying at our wonderful school and I can't wait to help!

In my spare time, I like running to keep fit and I love to eat out! Fortunately, Malta has lots of fantastic restaurants to choose from!
