Although the academic year is not quite over, this is a poignant period for Modern Languages and Cultures as the department prepares to say farewell to colleagues moving on from Liverpool. One of those leaving us is Silvia Gonzalez-Barroso who has worked as a lectora in Spanish for two years.

Silvia Gonzalez-Barroso enjoying the delights of Liverpool

Silvia is returning to her native Galicia, and is swapping her enjoyment of Sefton Park, Liverpool 1, and the home of the Beatles for the delights of Ourense, the Roman city in the heart of Galicia. During her time in Modern Languages & Cultures, Silvia has taught on Spanish language modules at all three levels, and has thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the keenest of students, as well as learning from her colleagues within the department.

Working at the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group, has been one of the best experiences I have ever had.

Silvia has established a good network of friends, both from amongst colleagues within the department, and across the city, and she confesses that she will miss enormously being in Liverpool and hopes to return very soon.
