Ms Cristina Garcia Hermoso is a Senior Teaching Fellow in Modern Languages and Linguistics at the University of Southampton.

Cristina graduated from Universidad Complutense of Madrid in 1991 with a degree in Modern Languages. Since then, she has taught at various institutions in the state and private sector. Cristina joined Southampton University in 2007. In July 2015, Cristina qualified as Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), after completing the course in the Professional Recognition of Educator Practice Framework (PREP). In July 2016, Cristina was awarded the 2nd prize for the ELE teacher of the year 2015, for the project "Manos a la obra", working with parallel texts.





I am coordinator for Spanish Stage 5 (level B2, C1 of ECFR) and teach Spanish stages 3 and 4. I also teach Public Service Interpreting.

As Senior Tutor for Pastoral Modern Languages and co-chair - together with the Student Academic President- the Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC), I work in conjunction with the Personal Academic Tutors to provide student academic and pastoral support and advice.

I am the ML representative and a member of the Think Tank team of the Researching Assessment Practices Group (RAP), an interdisciplinary research initiative open to all colleagues across the University wishing to develop their assessment and feedback practice using a research-informed approach.

I am investigating the perceptions of parallel texts as a tool to enhance cultural background whilst teaching and learning idioms and set expressions in Spanish. I am analysing the advantages that result from the students' active participation in building the context of the language they are learning.
