Hany Palestinian


My name is Professor Hani Al-Filistini, I am a teacher of the Arabic language to non-native speakers, I work at Kamilah Foundation since 2012 until now. during this period, I taught many students from all over the world, I was their companion in their journey from scratch to the highest levels, and I gradually worked until I became Director of the Teacher Training Department at Kamilah Foundation. I think that education must be fun and not dry, and to be enjoyable it must be connected to our daily life, as language is not only letters, but it is a culture and life.
