Angela Huanca Barrantes, a highly respected teacher of English as a foreign language (EFL) in the city of Ilo, has a strong impact on the lives of students at the Admirante Miguel Grau secondary school and at Centro Cultural Peruano Norteamericano, which is one of four binational centers in southern Peru. Due to Ms. Huanca's lack of understanding of English, she did not always like English. Her feelings changed when, as an undergraduate student, she enrolled in an English class that inspired her to not only open her mind and heart to the English language, but also to one day share her love of English. This article describes Ms. Huanca's experience with learning the English language, and how that experience shapes her interactions with her own students.
