Since 1987, I have worked in different teaching institutions in Brazil, the UK, the USA, France and Germany. I give workshops at conferences and ELT events and am a Cambridge Speaking examiner. I have an MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL from the University of Leicester, the UK. I also work as a copyeditor and translator (Portuguese to English). Please see www.nativeenglish.com.br for more information.
I set up this blog in 2014 especially to help English language teachers in their busy lives. There is a section of activities teachers can use in the classroom. The activities include the aim, level, timing and instructions. They normally last around 20-30 mins. The aim of the activities is to reach the students´ multiple intelligences and encourage them to do different dynamics such as mingling, pair/group work and sometimes getting them out of the classroom. The activities are fun and challenging and will hopefully motivate students to learn more English. The blog also has teaching tips to help teachers reflect on their lessons and grow professionally. There are also useful links for teachers to access and read. Enjoy!
