I am a professor of Spanish studies at Northeastern University. I am a native of Peru but I now live in Boston. I have a passion for teaching and I am the luckiest teacher in the world. I always have a great group of students in my classes that want to learn the Spanish language.
The Peru Dialogue of Civilization is an amazing Spanish immersion program where students will speak Spanish, participate in cultural activities and interact with local people. It is an exciting way to explore the Spanish language and to experience another culture's people, ideas, customs and beliefs. Students will sample all that the cities of Lima, Ica and Cuzco have to offer using the Spanish language. Students will complete a Service Learning project (Air Force schools) in which they will help Peruvian high school students to practice speaking English and also explain the typical day in the life of a student at an American University. Students from Northeastern will participate in an immersion language program at the Private University UNIFE. The last week of the immersion program features a visit to the one of the seven wonders of the world: MACHU PICCHU!
I started the Peru Dialogue of Civilization because I wanted to share my native country with my students. I take this responsibility very seriously and try to make every day in Peru a learning experience for my students. I want their Spanish to improve dramatically during their visit but I also want them to make memories that they'll remember for the rest of their lives.
