World Languages Lab CoordinatorMary Boren Soucy
Rahul Ghose"I started working in the World Languages Lab in 2007, not long after I arrived in the U.S.A.. Primarily, my duties are showing students and faculty how to use the language software programs, running user reports, and troubleshooting any problems we have with the computers in the Lab. Originally, I am from Chittagong, a major city in southern Bangladesh, on the Bay of Bengal. Also, I lived in Bombay, India for three years. My native language is Bengali, which is the 7th most spoken language in the world, but I also speak Hindi.
In May of 2012, I became a U.S. citizen along with all members of my family. In 2010, I was admitted to UNT. I want to be a computer software engineer, so that one day I can help millions of people around the world. Currently I am a student at El Centro College and I am so happy to work and study here. In October 2013, I take a plane to Bangladesh to spend a month in my home country!"
Hai NguyenHello! My name is Hai. This is my first semester working at the WLL. I am trying to rack up as much experience as I can from various fields and disciplines. I've been a barista, a manager, a tutor, a teacher, but I'll always be a student. So what can you teach me?
I have a Bachelor's degree in behavioral science - psychology. I am licensed to teach English, math, ESL, and reading to grades 4 through 8. I am working on my Master's degree at UTD.
I am knowledgable in computers. I believe I have a strong grasp of the English language (though sometimes it slips through my fingers!) I am a Jack of All Trades and Master of None. In other words, I know a little bit about almost everything, but I don't quite know everything about any one thing.

After I arrived in America, I was a volunteer in an elementary school as a teacherâ€™s assistant, and also a volunteer in Southwestern Medical Center as a technician.
Right now, I am an El Centro Nursing Program second semester student. I enjoy my life as a nursing student, and I also enjoy the work in The World Languages Lab.
I love meeting new people, and helping anybody whenever possible."
