Popular BULLI instructor Khalid Ibrahim was raised in two distinct cultures — Kurdish and Arabic — in Iraq simultaneously, and consequently witnessed firsthand the continuity of the historical conflict between the Kurds and the predominantly Arab regimes in Baghdad on issues of identity and geopolitics. Later, he immigrated into the U.S. to pursue higher education. Ibrahim holds an undergraduate degree in English language and Arabic translation, an M.A. in applied linguistics/TESOL, and an Ed.D. in applied linguistics and TESOL from Anaheim University. Ibrahim has worked as a professional translator/interpreter with the United Nations and the U.S. Army in Iraq; designed and developed various language teaching programs, teacher training curricula and assessment instruments; and presented at regional conferences.
