Professor Luengo-Martinelli has been teaching Spanish at Queen’s since 1995, holding concurrent Teaching Appointments at St. Lawrence College as well at The Royal Military College.  She is teaching all levels of Spanish acquisitions courses. In 2010, Professor Luengo-Martinelli was nominated for the Frank Knox Award for Excellence in Teaching and the W. J. Barnes Teaching Award of the Arts and Science Undergraduate Society.

In her teaching, Professor Luengo-Martinelli engages students in discovering how language relates to culture and real-life situations. Through the realisation that Spanish language is not just a set of rules and exceptions but a living being, students achieve their communicative skills and cultural awareness. Her goal is primarily to encourage and engage students to express themselves in Spanish, both orally and in writing.  By creating an inclusive and student-centered learning environment, Professor Luengo-Martinelli ensures that students with different learning pastes reach their learning goals and succeed in her class.
