Lula is one of the most influencial person of 2010

Unfortunately, during my english class, I was looking at and I found something interesting. An article of the most influencial people of 2010, and there was LULA. A lot of good commentaries about him and his government. I know that the people from outside don't know what is happening here and I gotta say that most of the complaments aren't true. "He tries to propel Brazil into the first world with....Fome zero". hauhuahuahuha, Brazil? In the First world? Good joke! If that was the intention he failed, because all I see is a lot of civilians dying everyday with hunger. And if he was really interested in solving this problem (that I think is very important to discuss) he should have given progress to it. More over, they don't see (or see) that this action can be used as a politic strategy of earning voters. With all these "helps", the excellency president no finger now has the support of the whole region of northeast. I can't ignore the fact that he's getting popular but, we have to be careful on what we're reading. Don't accept everything they say, have a critical reasoning. I don't believe in politicians anymore, so what I do is voting null. If you already have a person to vote...I'm not saying that you shouldn't do it but, with all the facts that I've been following...nothing will opinion.

My takeaways from BrELT on the Road

Just in!

Coincidence or not, propositions and concepts echoed through the plenaries and concurrent sessions I attended (apologies in advance to those I could not even attend in spirit at the same time).
Jamie Keddie encouraged us to use video to let students create their own narratives and not to limit this resource to practicing target language. Thru video, students can see there are multiple perspectives that contribute to a story and we have individual interpretations of that story. In so doing, they understand there is no right or wrong - we construct meaning based on our pre-conceived notions of reality. This awareness pivotal to critical thinking. The beauty of it all is that we benefit just as much from this method as our students.
Prodding students to see differently or see the unobvious was at the heart of Claire Venables' session "Not a box". By asking students to find new uses and meanings for a box, we are giving young learners a chance to learn language that i…

Yes we can speak English

Guess I'm a sucker for projects and project-based learning. Although this latest endeavor might not be considered a project in itself.
A simple Google search on the use of Whatsapp or other instant communication tools for English-speaking skills development came up with an extensive list of results.
The idea of creating a group to practice speaking had a specific target group - English teachers who are taking an online postgraduate course on language teaching. Many of them miss the chance to brush up on their oral skills, for the simple reason that the classes are online and interaction with the professor and colleagues comes only through text. 
The initiative rekindled a professional goal I had set for myself when I created the blog Help a teacher with their English (it has been discontinued - all related posts will show up here in the future). Nothing like being able to follow through on an idea and see it materialize into something you had not even fathomed in the first place.

Learning is truly ongoing - practicing too
