Dr. Ana Gregorio-Cano received her Ph.D. in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Granada, Spain (2014). She holds a Licenciatura (B.A./M.A.) in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Granada. In addition she is an English Sworn Translator and Interpreter (license no. 5129) appointed by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
When asked to share a little wisdom to the Modern Language students and explain what had enticed her to join the faculty here at The University of Texas at Arlington, Dr. Gregorio-Cano expressed the following:
The University of Texas at Arlington is a pioneering US university offering studies in the field of Translation and Interpreting. For this reason the Degree in Modern Languages offers a solid education, responding to the new labor demands where people specifically trained as professional liaison interpreters and/or professional translators with a deep knowledge of Spanish and English are nowadays more and more needed for real life situations. After finishing their studies, students will have acquired several professional competences that will allow them to carry out their tasks in publishing houses, multinationals, national and international institutions and in other areas related to languages and multicultural communication.
I am a trained professor with a strong interest and beliefs in education and teaching, which encouraged me to follow several postgraduate courses for training trainers at different contexts in order to cover several perspectives and methodologies. Furthermore, I have sound experience in teaching Spanish as a foreign language and Translation and Interpreting in Higher Education in Spain and in the United Kingdom.
Therefore, I believe that this new experience in Texas will be an outstanding opportunity to deepen, widen and develop my knowledge and practice on teaching, as well working for the University of Texas at Arlington will provide me with a very good insight on the challenges that multicultural backgrounds bring in a class or group of students. Proud of joining Maverick’s World!
