Maysville Community and Technical College is pleased to announce that they will be continuing their on-line Spanish Education courses — from Spain.
Currently MCTC’s Spanish I and II are being taught by Gertrudis Siguenza on-line. Siguenza has taught students throughout the duration of her three year residency in America. This will change and also remain as Siguenza will be returning to her hometown in Spain this the fall.
Russ Ward, Division Chairperson for the Liberal Arts and Education Division at MCTC said, “I am excited about the prospect of offering a language course from the country of origin and this is a great opportunity to expand the relationship of MCTC and its commitment to quality of educational offerings and the flexibility of its on-line programs and courses. We are pleased to have Gertrudis as a adjunct faculty member teaching Spanish at MCTC and for the chance to have her teach from Spain is exciting and it will be for the students.”
A native of Elche, Spain, a tourism-based Mediterranean Sea community in the Valencian region of southeast Spain, Siguenza taught English to Spanish-speaking students for more than a year before coming to Kentucky. She has a Master’s Degree in English Studies and is in the second year of her PhD studies in Linguistics and Didactics.
