About me

My name is Abdulwdood Bahhari (or Wadood), a PhD student at Monash University in the Linguistics and Applied Linguistics program since 2019. My PhD explores issues teachers and students face while teaching and learning Arabic as a second language.

I have been teaching Arabic for a few years and have been always curious to learn about the approach and experience of my fellow Arabic teachers. I understand that Arabic may not be the easiest language to teach because of the different varieties (dialects) it consists of.

In my PhD study, I want to explore how teachers manage the different language proficiencies students bring to the classroom – e.g. in Fus-ha, Ammyiah, English or other languages, and how language learning connects with culture and identity. My research is supervised by Dr. Louisa Willoughby and Dr. Howard Manns.
