Raghad Al Dirani

Raghad Al Dirani (Lebanon/France)

“Bonjour! My name is Raghad Al Dirani. I come from a city called Caen in Normandy. I have a bachelor’s in English language, literature, and civilization, a master’s in linguistics, and currently pursuing my master’s in education. I was born in a trilingual country: Lebanon. This context shaped my love for languages, especially for lexical borrowing. I am also interested in volunteering with humanitarian NGOs, multicultural environments, and oldies. I am excited to share my passion for the ‘langue de Molière’ with students. See you all in class!”
