Cristina Pérez-Arranz

Assistant Teaching Professor of Spanish

Cristina Pérez-Arranz holds a PhD in Literary Studies from Universidad Complutense. Born in Madrid, Spain, she moved to California in 2013 and has been teaching all levels of Spanish in the Boston area since 2017.

Dr. Pérez-Arranz follows a strict ARPAC (Anti-Racist Pedagogy Across the Curriculum) training and studies the implementation of authentic materials in the flipped classroom, in accordance with CLT (Communicative Language Teaching) and post-CLT teaching principles.

She scaffolds her courses according to Bloom’s taxonomy. Her use of authentic material and tailored grammatical and communicative exercises provides an opportunity for students to be exposed to real-world language and its contextual use, as well as broadening their vocabulary and comprehension of Spanish cultural dynamics and learning about socio-political events and their agents. Different styles of learning will always be accommodated in her classroom.
