As an Assistant-Professor of ESL and French at York College, I put my training in second language acquisition into practice teaching both English as a Second Language and French as a Foreign Language. I am also the coordinator for the French discipline. Having grown in a multilingual, multicultural country, I have always been fascinated by languages and their expressive capability as well as their importance to the identity of the individual. Having experienced first-hand the implementation of Arabization, I have naturally become interested in this process and the policies aimed at ensuring the primacy of Modern Standard Arabic in Algeria. I am also interested in the attitudes of Algerian language users towards MSA, Algerian Arabic, and the Tamazight language. I am equally interested in the re-emergence of Amazigh ethnic identity in Algeria and the fight for linguistic rights
