Profile

Francisco Salgado-Robles (Ph.D., University of Florida) is Associate Professor of Spanish Applied Linguistics and directs the Secondary Spanish Education Program.

Prior to coming to the City College of New York, Professor Salgado-Robles worked for the University of Missouri, the University of Florida, the University of Kentucky, and the College of Staten Island (CSI). At CSI, where he received tenure and was promoted to Associate Professor, Professor Salgado-Robles taught courses on Spanish language, Hispanic linguistics, and secondary world language education, coordinated the Spanish Program, developed new curricula for courses in Hispanic linguistics, supervised the Secondary World Language Education Program, and promoted international education among CSI (and CUNY-wide) students. He also launched the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society (Sigma Delta Pi) and served as the faculty advisor for the Alpha Alpha Delta Chapter. Furthermore, he worked as a consultant and teacher preparer with Spanish dual-language and heritage language programs across New York City public schools.

His line of inquiry explores three interrelated avenues in the field of Spanish Applied Linguistics: language education, language learning, and language in society. Dr. Salgado-Robles examines how contextual factors help to understand differences in Spanish second language (L2) and heritage language (HL) acquisition, and, more specifically, how L2 and HL learners develop their (socio)linguistic competence in different contexts, e.g., in an at-home classroom, through study abroad experiences, in electronic and community service-learning environments, and in both pre-service and in-service teacher education programs. This research incorporates current theories and methodologies in sociolinguistics and L2 and HL acquisition to examine language variation among native and nonnative speakers of Spanish. To this end, he employs quantitative methods to uncover the social and linguistic factors that shape Spanish at the individual and societal levels. His research has been published in national and international refereed journals (e.g., Boletín de Filología, Círculo de Lingüística Aplicada a la Comunicación, Estudios de Lingüística Inglesa Aplicada, Heritage Language Journal, Hispania, Journal of Language Teaching and Learning, Lenguas Modernas, Revista Signos, etc.) and books (e.g., Brill, Cuadernos de ALDEEU, Peter Lang, Routledge, Santiago de Compostela University Press, etc.).
