Description

Meet your Instructor

Abdelkader Berrahmoun
Abdelkader BerrahmounInstructor — Arabic
I grew up in Oran, Algeria. I became particularly interested in the pedagogy of second language acquisition, and the intersection of culture, history and politics with content-based language learning. Before joining Bend Language Institute, I taught French and Arabic to both youth and adults at several institutions.
Through my work as a language educator and historian, I aim to contribute to a climate of increased intercultural understanding and tolerance. I enjoy working with students one-on-one immensely to not only improve their language skills but their broader knowledge of cultural practices and values.
