Sara Stefanich

Adjunct Lecturer

Sara Stefanich received her Ph.D. in Hispanic Linguistics with a concentration in Second Language Teaching from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2019. She comes to Northwestern from UIC where she served as a coordinator in the Spanish Basic Language Program and taught beginner and intermediate Spanish courses as well as advanced Spanish Grammar and Introduction to Spanish Linguistics. Her research interests include: bilingualism and codeswitching, Spanish phonetics and phonology, and methodological considerations in bilingualism research, such as the role of language mode and the comparability of language dominance assessments. Before moving to the Chicago area, Sara spent a year in the Basque region of Spain, teaching English through the Auxiliares de Conversación program. When she is not teaching Spanish or working on her research, Sara can be found curled up with a good book or working out at the gym where she takes boxing and yoga classes.
