Professional Summary:

  • As a translator, I have translated resolutions, contracts, CVs, documents and letters from ministries, banks, international organisations and embassies from English to Arabic and from Arabic to English.
  • As a teacher, I worked on improving the L2 learners’ processing of their second language (English) by implementing a communicative approach in teaching, provided the learner with suitable quality and quantity of language input, which is essential for their language acquisition, and used tasks like the jigsaw task, structured input tasks, textual enhancement and flooded texts, which I learned about in my MA TESOL. Regarding online teaching, I used Microsoft Teams to conduct my lessons, and I used the ( website to share interactive exercises with my students, which made online teaching interactive.
