Diversity of Educational Backgrounds
Our teachers have degrees in a variety of disciples. These include (but are certainly not limited to) Arabic, Linguistics, Literature, Law, English, Philosophy. Additionally, two of our senior instructors were awarded American Council for Teaching Foreign Languages (ACTFL) certifications.
Excitement for Teaching
Our teachers are dedicated to their work. Each teacher is genuinely honored to share and hoe their language expertise through their work at the CCCL.
CCCL Teaching Program
Regardless of career and education history, all teachers must complete a rigorous four-month training program upon joining the CCCL team. This program includes shadowing, workshops and simulations. Throughout the workshop teachers are given feedback from both staff and students directly and through anonymous evaluations.
AccomplishmentsOur program inspired a larger workshop which was organized and executed by the CCCL, titled “Arabic Language Teacher Training Workshop”, sponsored by the School for International Training (SIT). The participants, hailing from Tunisia, Oman, Jordan and Morocco, and the CCCL produced a unified course format (syllabus, teaching methods and materials, multi-level classroom management and cross-cultural communication strategies) for all of SIT’s partners throughout North Africa and the Middle East.
