Maltalingua Team

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 10 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!

Rupert SwansonRupert Swanson
Academic Manager

Hello! My name is Rupert and I'm the Academic Manager here at Maltalingua. Since I joined the Academic team, I have seen the special bond which exists between students and staff, and can honestly say it's an environment you can feel at home in.

Originally from England, I have a strong background in Academic, Operations and Event Management in Malta, Poland and the UK. I am also a CELTA qualified teacher with over 15 years of experience.

Malta has been my home for the past 8 years, and I love this little island I call paradise. Thanks to working in many multicultural organisations, I understand different cultures and I am able to understand our students' needs better. Supporting and helping them with their academic goals and dreams is incredibly rewarding work.

I am always on hand if you ever have any queries about your course, and I look forward to meeting you soon at Maltalingua.

Tania AssuncaoKirstie Attard
Assistant Academic Manager

Hi everyone! My name is Kirstie and I’m a the Assistant Acadamic Manager and a TEFL qualified teacher from Malta. I have been teaching 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 my lessons as fun and as interesting as possible and strive to maintain a relaxed environment that the students can thrive in.

English is my passion, and I have a Masters in Romantic and Victorian English Literary Studies to prove it. I love to read and write and can always be found with a book in hand. I also 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 wellbeing 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 programme for our adult students and managing of 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 practise 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.
