Headshot of Sali Ziane

Teaching Professor of French

Sali Ziane earned a master’s degree in linguistics in 1994. She then was awarded a PhD in linguistics in 1999 in Paris, France. Her thesis focuses on the study of medical terminology. Dr. Ziane has received many certificates in France and England in both linguistics and didactics. Her book, Dictionnaire de vulgarisation en gynécologie-obstétrique, about the vulgarization of medical terminology in obstetrics and gynecology, targets a public with little knowledge of the medical field.

Before joining the World Languages Center at Northeastern University, she taught intermediate and advanced levels of French at Tufts University. She has extensive experience teaching French at all levels as well as translating technical English into French in medicine and computer science. She has taught in France, North Africa, England, and the United States.

Dr. Ziane’s teaching philosophy is to ensure that the French language is communicated via conversations, multi-media tools, and dialogues in order to make her students more comfortable with assimilation, to develop their self-learning ability, and to prepare them for advanced levels of French.
