Global and International Education MS, 2014
With her special interest in indigenous languages and populations, Liesl looks forward to working as an English language teaching assistant in the culturally rich and diverse country of Brazil. She is also interested in teaching English to local businesspeople and artisans who are preserving their local culture in a global society.
From Lewisburg, PA, Liesl studied abroad and worked as an English teacher in Mexico. There, she also studied the two indigenous languages Nahuatl and Zapotec after realizing that Mexico’s culture cannot be fully understood through the Spanish language alone. She hopes to work at the Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages after the ETA in Brazil.
