Language: Arabic

Class:2019 / Fellow

I am completing a master’s degree in Arabic, so I bring in an academic understanding of the language. I was born and raised in Iraq and lived in Syria for many years. I have a superior rating in oral and written Arabic from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, and I enjoy sharing my native language and culture with others. Finally, I learned English as an adult, so I know the challenges involved in learning a foreign language as an adult.
