About me

I am a sociolinguist and I have been a professor of languages for many years. I am also a professional interpreter / translator for the Federal Courts.

Currently, I am a doctoral student of Spanish and French Linguistics, and my second language acquisition methodology is based on teaching sociolinguistically through the top 10 songs in Miami, New York, and Los Angeles. I use the vocabulary and grammar of the song lyrics to put the language in context, and I provide my translation into English for my students (available on TeachersPayTeachers.com under "Lengua es Cultura"). I end every class with a music video!

My doctoral dissertation is based on the sociolinguistic usage of popular song lyrics to evaluate and quantify the contemporary linguistic pulse of Spanish in the United States.

Balanced bilingual (both native speaker and academic level): English and Spanish, Near-native speaker (lived there and graduate degree): French. Varying proficiency (conversational, can translate to/from, and/or have studied): Italian, Penninsular and Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Gallego, Asturiano, Valenciano, pretty much anything in Western Europe except for German and Basque, and in the Americas except for Quechua.

Proud linguistics NERD; I love love love to dance salsa / merengue / bachata / cumbia / reggaeton / etc; I love to cook; I love cultures, languages, and connecting people through language.
