“No single day is the same at Sharek Centre! Being a part of a creative and inspiring team I get to meet interesting people from different cultures and backgrounds and I’m amazed at the range of different people who want to learn Arabic right now. I’m also a learner of languages myself – fluent in Greek, Turkish and English – and I’ve recently started taking Arabic classes at Sharek. I love the focus on using real Arabic in real situations and the way the teachers get us speaking from the beginning. You can see my first video in Arabic here”

Despina holds a BA in Psychology and a master’s degree in Research methods from the University of Reading. Before joining Sharek she worked in business development and volunteered at the Alzeimer’s Society.
