Overseas, English Teacher Is A Pioneer

Walk the streets of the United Arab Emirates and you'll notice a variety of foreign languages and local dialects. But go into a bank, store, restaurant or mall and you'll hear English. Street signs are in both Arabic and English, too.

"English is widely used in any transaction. Even the locals will speak English when they speak to the shopkeepers," says 1995 Mt. Lebanon High School graduate Rachel Lange, who has done her part to improve the use of the language in the UAE by composing a 150-page workbook for college-bound students.
