Mr. John Semple
Director English Language Centre
John Semple has a long association with Egypt. After graduating from Oxford University as ahistorian, he studied Islamic Art and Architecture with Professor Creswell at the AmericanUniversity in Cairo and worked as a research student with the celebrated architect, Hassan Fathy. He worked on several archaeological sites in Nubia, before the building of the High Dam, and at Fustat. He then joined the British Council and has served as a director of several of their offices in The Sudan, Alexandria, The Yemen, Brunei, and Saudi Arabia, and was also Director of the British Council in the West of England (Bristol and Exeter). One of his many interests is exploring the deserts of Arabia and Egypt.
Kareem Abulnaga comes from Egypt, where he was born, raised and spent most of his life. He has been a teacher of English for the past seven years. His experience in teaching English is varied: he has taught young learners, teenagers, university students and adults. He has taught General English, Business English and Technical English at five of the most prominent educational institutions in Saudi Arabia, including King Saud University, Riyadh. He is also an author of an English-learning book by the name “English for Life”
Among his professional qualifications he holds a B Ed (TEFL Department) with honours. He also has a certificate in Teaching IELTS from ‘London Teachers Training College’ (Distinction A), and he holds the Cambridge University CELTA, which has helped him greatly to sharpen his teaching skills and quickly advance his career.
His teaching is based on real-life situations. He believes that the most effective English language learning can be done by creating a relaxed atmosphere where students are exposed to authentic spoken English and feel free to experiment with the new language and are not frightened to make mistakes. His teaching philosophy is that English should be taught as naturally as one acquires a mother tongue.
His aim is to contribute as much as he can to the development of FUE and to become part of its success by becoming the best teacher possible both inside and outside the classroom.
