What I'm Working On

Currently, focusing on teaching and learning of English Language, I am taking a Master’s degree at the University of Passo Fundo (UPF). In the dissertation research, EMI is being put into practice through a course to the teaching staff of the UPF.  I also take part in a research group on languages, literacy, teacher development and methodological innovation. The dissertation research, as well as the extension group study are part of a bigger project aiming at IaH.  I teach English in a public school, at the High School Center Integrated to the UPF, Brazil.
