DR. ERICA ILIANA HERNÁNDEZ SALAZAR
As a native of Mexico and a seasoned Berliner, I look back on my experiences and the learning processes associated with them, as a mixture of positive and negative experiences.
This life path enabled me to acquire a high level of intercultural competence which accompanies my teaching.
I am an enthusiastic tango dancer, language trainer and a passionate observer of world events. I often bring these perspectives thematically into my teaching, to achieve contemporary design and a life-world relevance.
I love to laugh, I love to dance and I love to roller skate with my teenager niece. These activities allow me to enjoy the moment.
As Goethe once said in Faust I: “Will I say to the moment: Stay! You are so beautiful! …”
