"Knowledge of languages facilitates the understanding and integration to other cultures"
Edda Winkelman loves promoting the learning of Spanish language. She has over 14 years of experience teaching Spanish as a foreign language and as a second language context. Her experience in teaching Spanish is in both formal and non-formal mode and in national, international and multicultural environments. Edda also has experience understanding and supporting students coping with cultural shock and cultural adjustment.
She is passionate about the dynamics in the teaching and learning of foreign languages. She considers that the integration of the lexicon and the culture is essential to facilitate an effective communication and comprehension of the Spanish language.
Currently, she is pursuing a PhD at the University of Navarra in Spain. Her research, activities and subjects of investigation are on the lexicon and culture of teaching Spanish as a foreign language in the University Context.
