Isra’a Qaddourah

“I’ve been teaching Arabic for 10 years and my teaching experience has covered a variety of age groups including school children and adults. Before joining Sharek I taught Arabic language modules to undergraduate students at all levels at the University of St Andrews. Sharek has given me the chance to be creative and to achieve my goals. I’m interested in discovering and designing fun activities and materials that maximize interaction in Arabic classroom and, here, I’ve contributed to our own Arabic language coursebooks for all levels”
