ESL, American Culture
Adam Maynard-Vasquez attended Mississippi State University where he studied linguistics, Spanish and cultural anthropology. At Eldorado Emerson, as an ESL instructor, his emphasis is in teaching English as a “foreign language” to those in the student body who are from other countries.
“My university offered me many opportunities to travel abroad and experience other languages and cultures. It was my experience from visiting various countries how wonderful English is and how amazing it feels to teach it to others and see how positively and excitedly they respond to it.” Mr. Maynard has even taught English in Peru and after returning home decided to continue teaching to foreign students who had decided to continue their education in the States.
