More than twenty-five years experience teaching Arabic Literature (Classic and Modern) as well as Arabic Language Courses (all levels). My role as the coordinator for the Semitic Languages Program: Arabic and Hebrew Language courses includes both academic and administrative tasks. Over the years, I have advocated for the addition of a variety of new courses including Modern Arabic Fiction and Arabic Women Writers as well as separate Heritage Language classes. I continuously update and build up the program (plan courses, monitor needs and demands etc.) as well as ensure the academic success of the courses offered at Concordia University.
I am a native bilingual speaker of both Arabic and English, and a fluent speaker of French. I also have basic communication skills in German.
