A passionate EFL teacher and learner who got attached to learning and using English at the age of 8, two years before taking it as a school subject.  Looking at a native-like level in the language after graduating from high school, I decided to do a BA in English Language at one of the best universities in teaching English in Palestine.  My choice was the Arab American University in Jenin which was known for its highly-qualified staff at the English Language Program.  Not so long after graduation from university and teaching English as a foreign language in Kuwait and Palestine, I sought to continue my learning journey by doing an MA in Applied Linguistics and TEFL in the UK.  During this one-year program, I have managed to acquire and develop a wide variety of language skills and life skills simultaneously.  I felt that I was getting closer to my dream not like any time before.  Lastly, it is worth noting that I am still going down the road of learning about this language alongside teaching it as a foreign language at An-Najah National University.
