Luis Perez, Ph.D
I have a M.A. and Ph.D. in Spanish Literature from The Catholic
University of America, Washington D.C. (1993), where I also taught
Spanish language for eleven years, and a B.S. in Aeronautic Engineering
from the Universidad Politécnica of Madrid, Spain. In 2009 I came to
Otterbein University from Moscow, where I was teaching Spanish at the
University for fifteen years.
I am very interested on the use of technology, especially the Internet,
for teaching languages. I think it is very important to take advantage
of all the possibilities that the Web can offer us as educators,
especially the web understood as a social tool, which is characterized
by the communication and dialogue between users. For several years I
have used Blogs and other tools in my Spanish classes and I think that
the possibilities that they offer to teachers are enormous.
The combination of a motivating teaching with a communicative approach
using real life situations and with the help of the Internet may make
learning Spanish a worthwhile adventure that could mark positively the
life of our students.
