Emad Hakim Will Assist Students in California University of Pennsylvania’s Arabic Program

California University of Pennsylvania is hosting its second Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant this academic year.

Emad Hakim, from Egypt, will tutor Cal U Global Online students in bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in Arabic. Hakim will help students gain language proficiency and complete class assignments. He also will assist in organizing cultural events on campus.

The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant program brings early-career educators from around the world to study at U.S. colleges while they teach their native languages, assist in language instruction and serve as cultural ambassadors.

While at Cal U, Hakim will take two courses each in the fall and spring semesters to improve his teaching methodology. He has a bachelor’s degree in English from Bani-Suef University, near Cairo, and has been an English teacher for five years. He plans to pursue a master’s degree in teaching methodology.

Dr. Razak Abedalla-Surrey, Cal U’s Arabic program coordinator, said the success of the university’s first Fulbright teaching assistant, Inejih Abeid, of Mauritania, last year was a benefit to everyone in the program.

“Cal U and the Arabic program is diverse and proud of that diverse culture,” said Dr. Razak Abedalla-Surrey.

“I am sure it will be a great experience for him as a cultural ambassador to help us understand his culture and also to learn from us about our culture.”
