Professional Experience

María Mayberry, Associate Professor of Spanish, is a native of Monterrey, Mexico.  She received her BA, MA, and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Texas at Austin, where she specialized in Spanish Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition.  Before Texas she studied in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico at Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, where she received the degree of Licenciada en Ciencias de la Comunicación in 1981. She teaches Civilization and Culture of Spain, Spanish Grammar, Phonetics and Applied Linguistics as well as beginning Spanish courses. Her research focuses in understanding the difficulties faced by adult L2 language learners when processing speech. Her commitment to teaching and researching Spanish as a second/foreign language is rooted in her own experiences as an adult language learner.
