Join the AMIDEAST community on Sunday, March 28, 2021, from 4 - 5pm GMT+3 (Yemen time)! This free, live event in a mix of English and Arabic is open to the public and will feature Naser Fadhel, faculty member at the University of Minnesota teaching Arabic language and culture.
Nasr started out in Yemen, where he lived most of his life in Yemen between Lahij and Aden. In 2006, he successfully completed the English Access Microscholarship Program, and then volunteered in the AMIDEAST Internship Program in the years after. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Aden, and then a Fulbright FLTA scholarship which took him to the State University of New York from 2012 - 2013.
When he returned to Yemen, Nasr joined the English Language faculty at AMIDEAST Aden as an EL instructor. In 2016, he returned to the U.S. to pursue higher education. Nasr now has two master’s degrees from the University of Michigan - in Teaching and Learning from the School of Education, and in Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language from the Middle Eastern Department.
Nasr's research interests include Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language, education in peace and conflict zones, international and comparative education, and the role of religion, language, and culture in education. Now, Nasr is working as a lecturer of Arabic language and culture at the University of Minnesota. And he will be our highlighted speaker at the upcoming event! Come learn from Nasr directly about how to make it through a long journey to success.
