Modern Languages

All Majors & Minors

Daniel Espitia Altamiranda

I decided to apply for the Fulbright FLTA grant because for years I have been aware of the importance of sharing language and culture with others. I knew that by coming to the United States I would not only live valuable experiences for my professional development, but also for my personal growth.

I am from Colombia, and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in English Language Teaching from the University of Cordoba - Colombia. I have taught students of different ages and different levels in public institutions. This year I will be working with SPAN-201 and SPAN-202.

At Ursinus, I would like to support the teaching of my native language and share the Spanish-speaking culture by participating in conversation sessions, projects, activities, and the creation of resources. Additionally, I would like to learn about the American culture and society by interacting with the Ursinus community as an instructor and as a learner. I hope that one day I will be able to look back and remember how enriching and special teaching and learning at Ursinus was.
