Ana M. Perez-Girones

Prof. Pérez-Gironés has worked on a diverse array on pedagogical materials that respond to different needs of the language learning experience, many of which are the basis for her published work. She is co-author of the programs Puntos de Partida (McGraw-Hill), and Más Español Intermedio (McGraw-Hill). Among thee issues of her professional interests are cultural competence and technology, which came together in the project En una palabra (Georgetown University Press), a series of three CD-ROMs based on interviews conducted in three different cities of the Spanish-speaking world. 

With her Wesleyan colleague Louise Neary, Pérez-Gironés is also co-author of Wespañol, an open-source program for learning Spanish with the Wesleyan community in mind.

Always wanting to be a language teacher, she switched from planning to be an English teacher in Spain to a Spanish teacher in the United States. The study of English was an excellent preparation to understand where most of her students come from to her courses.

Wesleyan students have been her inspiration for all her publications. She likes the classroom to be a home and an experiential place for her students and herself—a place where wonderful things can happen, and where students as well as instructor are engaged in learning.
