Building Bridges with Helen Doron Early English
Helen Doron Early English’s own Amal Abboud was interviewed in her local area newspaper, al-Salam, for the November 11, 2011 edition. The Arabic-language paper circulates in her home town of Shfaram, Israel, and surrounding areas.
Amal spoke to the paper about her personal history, and her career with Helen Doron Early English, which started when she saw a Helen Doron demo lesson and fell in love with the method. She enrolled in a Helen Doron Teacher Training Course, and within two years had taught 400 students. She then opened a Learning Centre of her own in Haifa, and applied to become a Teacher Trainer.
Over the last 8 years, Amal has travelled around the world teaching the Helen Doron Method, and has worked closely with Helen on development of new courses and materials. She appears as co-author on 10 of the Helen Doron Early English workbooks. Amal’s current development project is with Helen Doron Teen English.
When asked about her motto, Amal said: “I love what I do. I love the method, the students, and the feeling that I’m helping people build bridges between themselves and their dreams. People always look at English as a wall standing in their way and with my work I hope to replace those walls with bridges.”
