About Pegeen

¡Hola!
My name is Pegeen K, and I am currently a fourth-year Spanish language student at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. During the school year I live in Amherst, but I am in the Worcester area during breaks.

I have been taking Spanish classes since I was in the 3rd grade and now as a senior at UMass, my Spanish classes are all senior-level (400-level) and graduate-level (500+) courses. Currently, I am working on obtaining Massachusetts' initial education licensure to allow me to teach Spanish to middle and high school students.

I have also just returned from 5 months in Spain where I attended la Universidad de Sevilla, lived with a host family, and made many Spanish-speaking friends (with whom I still keep in regular contact - which has kept my own language skills sharp!). I learned so much during my time in Sevilla, and I am eager to go back!

The best way to learn a language is to associate what you are learning with an experience; and when that experience is fun, the learning is easier. As for me, my interest in the Spanish language was piqued by an increasing exposure to Spanish music. The music’s exciting melodies and rhythms provided a fun framework for learning the language while the lyrics challenged me to expand in my own usage of vocabulary, grammatical structures, and idioms. As the years have gone on, I have amassed a large library of Spanish music, and I am constantly on the lookout for more so that I might continue to grow in my understanding of the language.

In addition to music, I also augment my own language-learning experiences with games, arts and crafts, cooking, and reading and writing, and I supplement my teaching with those same things.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you in all your language-learning endeavors!

¡Hasta pronto!
