Fritz Hensey is a professor of Spanish and Portuguese teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in areas of linguistics and translation studies.  He teaches  historical linguistics and sociolinguistics as well as translation and interpretation and has lectured and given workshops in translation and interpretation in Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Nicaragua, and Taiwan.   In the area of sociolinguistics he is concerned with language rights and language issues typical of our region and of several countries of immigration, particularly in legal, medical, and social-service-areas.  I encourage my undergraduate students to learn bilingual communication skills both for vocational purposes and for linguistic enhancement. Recent areas of research:   codeswitching in Latino prose fiction and  the training of bilingual mental health workers.
