Armand Affricano

Professor - English for Academic Purposes

Welcome to Valencia! We are glad you're here. In fact, I myself started out here at Valencia as a student before going on to earning my BA at Rollins College and my MA at the University of South Florida.

I love what I do and have taught academic English in rigorous university programs in Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Bangladesh. Travel is my passion, and I have been fortunate in being able to visit 41 countries around the world... so far. Perhaps I have even been to your country!

Global education and international cultural exchange are very important to me. Learning about other cultures, languages, and histories makes us all better people. I've studied Spanish and Italian and have spent more than 20 years of my life living in countries other than America.

I am looking forward to having you in my class. We in the EAP program are all united in our focus: to help you succeed and reach your academic goals!
