Dr Isabel Santafé


I started teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language in 2003. At Exeter I teach Spanish oral, grammar, writing skills and translation (into Spanish) classes to undergraduate students in the Hispanic Unit. At a postgraduate level, I teach on research-led modules in the MA Translation and supervise dissertations. I have also taught theoretical and practical aspects of the translation profession such as marketing and social media in the Translation Summer School, Translation: A Global Business.

In 2012, I took part in the E-Assessment Project, funded by the College of Humanities, and since then I have been designing online tests (reading comprehensions, listening comprehensions and grammar e-tests) in Hispanic Studies.

I am also particularly interested in the use of translation in language teaching and learning, always researching new ideas to incorporate to my seminars.

I was awarded Best Graduate Teaching Assistant in Modern Languages in the Guild’s Teaching Awards 2012 and was shortlisted as one of the five Best University-wide GTAs in the Guild’s Teaching Awards 2013. In 2014 and 2015 I received nominations for Most Supportive Member of staff.
