Dr. Juan Calvo
¡Hola! ¿Qué tal? Me llamo Juan Calvo.
I was born in south Spain (Córdoba). My family moved to Barcelona when I was nine, so I learned some Catalán. At twenty-six I moved to the states. I when to SFSU and got my BA an MA in Spanish; then I went to UC Davis to do my Ph.D. I love Spanish language and literature and I would like to teach you as much as possible about Spain and Latin American culture, language, civilization, and literature. I always emphasize conversation in all my classes. ¿Listo? ¡Nos vemos en clase!
