I am delighted to welcome you to BUB’s brand-new Professional Language Centre. I am very excited to be in Bahrain among such a vibrant and multi-cultural community. My vision for BUB’s language centre is a place where people of all nationalities come together to learn both English and other languages in a supportive and engaging environment. I am first and foremost a teacher, and expect to spend much of my time in the classroom or interacting with students. Having studied several languages myself, I know how exciting- yet challenging- it can be. My next challenge is to start learning Arabic. My door is always open so do come and introduce yourself and share your suggestions for our language centre.
