Poppe’s presentation focused on methods of bringing communicative approaches to teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL).

“It was a perspective-changing experience and a dream come true to visit Baghdad,” Poppe said. “I look forward to a continued dialogue and exchange with the warm, generous, vibrant, and intellectually stimulating women of Al-Mustansiriya.”

Poppe joined AUIS as a lecturer in the Academic Preparatory Program (APP) in 2016. Her recent book “Girl, World” was shortlisted for the Eric Hoffer Grand Prize and was awarded a distinction for General Fiction.
