Adjunct instructor of Arabic
Afaf received her BA in English Literature in Homs, Syria in 2011. She started teaching English as a second language in many schools and universities, for students of different ages. Afaf left Syria during war and moved directly to Portland, Oregon where she started teaching Arabic at Portland Community College and Portland State University. Afaf has a special love for languages through which, she believes, we share and exchange knowledge, culture and traditions. She also likes travelling, Arabic grammar and reading fine Arabic poems.
