Connect with me

I am a Lecturer in the Westminster Professional Language Centre, and I have been teaching Arabic at the University of Westminster since 2009. I have taught Arabic for Specific Purposes and General Arabic at all levels. I taught Arabic at SOAS, UCL and the FCO.

My research interests are primarily based around the area of Arabic teaching (Arabic heritage learners and blended learning in Arabic teaching).  I am also interested in Arabic and identity and Islam and politics. 


I have completed my BA in Algeria in Islamic Studies. Then I obtained my MA from Birkbeck College University of London. I have completed my Diploma in Teaching Arabic from SOAS, University of London

I am Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA)


I have taught several courses at a number of universities in the UK. At The University of Westminster I teach Arabic at Polylang, and I teach Arabic for Media.  

My research interests include the pedagogy of Arabic language teaching, blended learning, Islam and politics.

My current project is about “Using Microblogging in Teaching Arabic” and “The Use of MOOCs in Teaching and learning Arabic”.
