About my work and hobbies
Presently, I am working as an EFL Instructor. My students are primarily beginners and their native language is Arabic. Although my degree isn’t in English/Education/Linguistics, I feel I have a natural ability to teach as I have a lot of patience with a generally dynamic skill set. It is my personal aim now however to incorporate technology into my lessons in effort to gauge student interest. I am presently taking a course in teaching languages with ICT to help in this effort.
Aside from teaching, in my spare time, I enjoy playing and watching sports like football (both American and European) and basketball. I also like reading (esp. things related to Educational Technology these days), watching films, improving my Arabic and trying almost anything new and adventurous. Some of the activities I would like to endeavor soon include scuba diving, rock climbing, skydiving and camping in the desert.
Here is a picture of me riding a 4-wheeler for the first time last year while I was in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.
