Introducing Enrique Granados González, Spanish Assistant 2014-2015

We are happy to introduce you to our Spanish program Enrique Granados González, the Spanish assisant for this academic year. ¡Bienvenido, Enrique!
Enrique Granados Gonzalez
My name is Enrique Francisco Granados González, I am from Córdoba (Andalucía, España) and I am the 2014-2015 Spanish language assistant. I earned a B.A. in Translation and Interpretation Studies from the University of Córdoba (Spain), and I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in scientific-technical translation. I love languages so much. Despite beginning my career as an engineer, later I decided that I would like to be a translator and language teacher and… here I am! I speak Spanish, English, Portuguese, French and Italian, and I am trying to learn Swedish. I invite you to know something more about the language, culture and traditions of my homeland. ¡Hasta pronto, amigos!

Welcome, Ying-Yu, to the Department of Languages at William Jewell College

Welcome to William Jewell College's Languages blog for the new academic year 2014-2015. We will continue to highlight our students' achievements in languages and keep you posted on new developments in the department.

This year we received three new assistants into the department. Miss Ying-Yu Huang, our new Chinese instructor, is the first to be introduced to you. We're sure you'll hear great things from her students in the months to come.

Ying-Yu Huang

Hello, I’m Ying-Yu from Taiwan! You can also call me Rita. Huang is my family name, and it is also the last name of Huang Fei-Hong, a master of martial art. So you better watch out! In my leisure time I like to read novels, go swimming, and play the piano. I like animals especially dogs. I speak Taiwanese, Mandarin and a little bit Japanese. Hopefully I will have the chance to share the Chinese culture with you!
