studying in English-taught program, I managed to improve my English as well. I
have succeeded in publishing several articles and translations in the Journal of
Qafqaz University and in the books titled “Selections from English language
history”, “Modern American and English stories”. Besides my studies, I have

effectively, and how to deal with students with different learning styles. I

activities such as role-play, debate and word association. Additionally, for

Curriculum. Therefore, the opportunity to collaborate with foreign teachers
