Inma Navarro

Senior Lecturer

Department of World Languages and Cultures

Withers Hall 302


Inma was born in Seville, Spain. She earned her two Masters degrees in Hispanic Linguistics and TESOL at Indiana University, Bloomington. After teaching at Indiana for nine years, she moved to Germany where she worked at EBS University. Now back in the States, she loves teaching Spanish to the Wolfpack community.

Her passion for linguistics and foreign language teaching is shown in the classes that she teaches: Spanish conversation and Spanish Phonetics. In addition to these courses she loves to teach FLS 335, which is a course designed to address the needs of Heritage Speakers of Spanish; students who grew up listening to Spanish at home but never learned it in a formal setting like school.

In 2022, thanks to a DELTA grant, Inma and a group of investigators launched the app Digital Library of Hispanic Voices, an application open to everybody interesting in exploring more the different dialects of the Spanish-speaking world.
