Khiri Saad Mkhtar Elkut
I am a lecturer in the department of English at Elmergib University. Also a teacher of English at many other Libyan universities, and a tour guide in the ancient Roman city of Leptis Magna, Khoms, Libya since 2006. I was granted a Fulbright Program scholarship (sponsored by US State Department) as a foreign language teaching assistant of Arabic at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky (2010-2012), where I also took English courses. I have also attended a number of different workshops in and outside the country about English Language. In 2007-2008 I was a teaching assistant / trainee under the supervision of British Council trainers at the language centre of Elmergib University. During that and the following year, I taught Headway books (Elementary and Beginner), and Reward Books (Beginner). My duties included placement testing students, teaching English at several levels, creating and administering progress tests, keeping records, issuing achievement certificates, and attending British Council workshops. This project was a partnership between the Libyan Ministry of Higher Education and the British Council to provide centers of excellence in English Language provision. I hold an MA in TESOL and Applied Linguisticsbfrom the University of Salford, UK (2015) and a BA in English language from Elmergib University in Khoms (2005- 2006). I also hold an IELTS certificate, score 6.0 (2013), a diploma in applied linguistics from the Academy of Janzur for Post Graduate Studies in Tripoli, Libya (2010), and a TKT Certificate (Teacher Knowledge Test), including the three modules (2008). My hobbies are reading and playing football.
