I obtained a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Spanish at The Pennsylvania State University in May 1994. My major field was Spanish Applied Linguistics/Second Language Acquisition. I had previously obtained an undergraduate degree (Licenciatura) in Hispanic Philology (concentration in Linguistics) from the Universidad de Sevilla, Seville, Spain, in June 1980. I currently impart courses at the University of Kansas on teaching foreign languages methodology. My research focuses, naturally, in foreign language teaching methodologies, in general, and in teaching grammar and pronunciation, in particular, while at the same time incorporating the element of technology as a way to enhance both learning and teaching. I have presented at both national (ACTFL, AATSP, TESOL) and international (Costa Rica, Japan, Spain, Greece) professional forums, and also published in national (Foreign Language Annals, Hispania, Applied Language Learning, Language Learning and Technology) and international (International Review of Applied Linguistics, Journal of Language Teaching and Research) professional journals.
