Meet the Arabic and Italian Advisors

Due to increasing demand for resources and support in these two languages, we now have advisors for Arabic and Italian: Wessam and Chiara. As for the other languages, the advisors will be responsible for sharing materials on-line, supporting teachers of their language across the network through their closed Facebook groups, as well as running on-line workshops. They will also create materials banks for teaching Arabic and Italian. See their contact information below.
