Micheline Antonian

Micheline Antonian was born and raised in Alexandria, Egypt and moved to the UK in the early 1990s. Soon after she worked for 20+ years as the Regional Director, Arab Region, for the largest women's development NGO in the world. She graduated from Westminster University with a Bachelor's degree in Arabic language and holds a TAFL certificate (Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language). Her work and frequent travelling have broadened her understanding of cultural contexts, as well as the evolution of spoken Arabic. She became familiar with a wide range of different dialects and has developed an appreciation of the cultural differences between the west and Arab world. The more she learnt, the more she realised that teaching the Arabic language to adults would help them discover and appreicate the Arab cultural richness and diversity. She is passionate in guiding students to the same excitements and discoveries that she had found! Her teaching focuses on developing speaking and communicative skills, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, using different classroom activities, while ensuring each and every student accomplishes the goals they set for themselves.
