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!


Tania AssuncaoKatie Ryan
Assistant Director of Studies

Hello everyone! My name is Katie and I am the Assistant Director of Studies here at Maltalingua. I started teaching at this school in May 2018 and have enjoyed every minute since.

I moved to Malta many years ago and, although I left for university in Ireland, I always seem to find my way back to this beautiful island. If I am not teaching, I enjoy getting to know the students at the school.

We have a wide range of nationalities so it is always interesting to learn from each other. Teaching, for me, isn’t a job. I feel as though I am lucky to have found a job which I enjoy so much and it’s all because of the team we have working here as well as the students.

I look forward to getting to know you here at Maltalingua!


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.
