PROF. FAITH BEN-DANIELS
You are warmly welcome to the website of the Department of Languages Education. This department has three units in operation—English Language Education, Arabic Education and French Education. As a department, our core mandate is to train the next generation of language teachers. However, in fulfilling our mandate, we are also building a next generation of public speakers, events planners, interpreters as well as media moguls, among many other professionals. After all, these varied professionals, more often than not, begin from a language background.
Our department boasts of a well-integrated learning process that believes in the efficacy of mixed method approaches to teaching and learning; thereby, intertwining the use of media as well as traditional teaching and learning modes in lesson deliveries. We also have a vibrant theatre movement in the third year of studies under our Bachelor’s Degree programme (English Language Education), which helps unearth talents as well as prepare our students for the world stage.
As an institution for higher learning, we are contributing to our nation by ensuring that we nurture degree holders with high ethical and moral values for the advancement of our country and the world. If you are considering joining us, or have already joined us, you would not have lost your way.
