Francisco Armengual was born and raised in Mexico City, Mexico. He finished his Bachelor in Business Administration while in Mexico, and recently his Master of International Spanish Language Teacher at the University of Salamanca in Salamanca, Spain. In September 2011 Francisco joined the faculty at the University of the Fraser Valley and has been teaching Spanish as Seminar Instructor since then.

Francisco, on one hand, is tempted to just be fun and win his students over. He wants them to like him, but, on the other hand, is tempted to be firm and sober, this is a serious stuff. Both sides are a bit off. He aims down the middle promising that he will be himself interacting with his students with honesty and the expectation that a wide frontier is just around the corner. Francisco will help his students to start the journey of learning a new language and encourage to keep going to those who have already begun the journey.

 In order to improve and reach full potential as instructor, Francisco completed in 2012 his undergraduate level degree course as an instructor from Vancouver Community College and in 2017 Francisco was awarded with a merit-based scholarship “Perfection/refresher immersion program for teachers of Spanish” from University of Salamanca in Spain.  


International Spanish Teacher Master, graduated in 2015 from University of Salamanca. Salamanca, Spain.

Business Administration Bachelor, graduated in 1991 from Anahuac University. Mexico City, Mexico

Teaching Interests

Francisco believes that knowledge is far more valuable when shared. His teaching experience as a seminar assistant at UFV and as a instructor at Chilliwack Elder College have not only helped him to improve his teaching skills, but also have encouraged him to pursue a life-long career in teaching Spanish as a second language. Francisco is eager for teaching opportunities to share what he has learned and to make learning fun and inspiring. 

Area of expertise

Francisco’s area of expertise is in Spanish as second language acquisition.
