Rachel Roy (Canada)
“Bonjour! My name is Rachel and I am from the province of Québec, Canada. I have a bachelor’s in teaching English as a second language. Be it movies or books, I’m passionate about all aspects relating to languages; I’m especially interested in the relationship between language and culture. This opportunity here at Carthage is invaluable for me since it will allow me to meet new people from all walks of life. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!”
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!”
