Hatem Hammad, MA
I have lived in Calgary since 1991 where I completed a BEd and an MA in Education. I also have a strong background in Linguistics and Arabic. I have always loved learning and teaching languages, Arabic and ESL. My passion stems from believing that anyone can learn a language if learning was made fun and interactive. In my classes I encourage interaction among students and provide ample opportunity for them to practice what they are learning. I have taught Arabic 1 and 2 twice a year since the summer of 2003. Not once did I teach them the same way as I adapt my style to the needs of students, and each student is unique.
