Bilingual Program Coordinator
Lord Appiah is TAYFFI’s Bilingual Program Coordinator. He completed the University of Cape Coast in Ghana with a Bachelor’s degree in French. During his undergraduate study, he undertook an internship in Togo where he participated in a training course in Translation (English-French/French-English). After his completion, he taught French and English at Opoku Ware School in Kumasi. As a French teacher, he volunteered as a language instructor for final year students under the CREF’s program (Regional centre for the Teaching of French) in the Ashanti region.
Lord is now an international graduate student in the French program at the University of Saskatchewan. Since he moved to Canada in September 2019, Lord has assisted the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultural Studies in the university in teaching and research activities and taken courses in French and Francophone cultures and literature. Aside from being a Graduate Teaching Associate, Lord has worked as a Market Researcher at Insightrix Research. These activities have well informed him about Anglophone and Francophone cultural diversity, society, business, and sharpened his enthusiasm to partake in any interdisciplinary, community-based research and intellectual exercise geared towards the provision of adequate, relevant, and timely information.
With his strong oral and written communication skills in both French and English, he is willing to work respectfully and provide services to all persons or groups (both anglophone and francophone community) to achieve his position’s objectives, TAYFFI’s goals and promote Canada’s multiple identities and fostering social cohesion in Saskatoon.
