Yes, I’m from Brazil and for heaven’s sake, I couldn’t dance samba to save my life. I do not support any football team; I do not watch TV because I love reading. I speak Portuguese (and a great deal of English). I’ve never been to the forest; I am an urban creature who lives in one of the biggest cities of the world. Yes, São Paulo is in Brazil not in Argentina and Buenos Aires is definitely not the capital of my country. Yes, I have to tell you that ‘feijoada’ is really delicious (you should try it with ‘caipirinha’) and that our coffee really tastes like coffee. Just in case you’re afraid of being mugged, you have to fear our politicians, much more than our people (like any other country, by the way). Brazilian music is fascinating and yes, we have all sorts of landscapes here from jungle to incredible modern cities besides spots that can remind you of heaven. Before I forget, I don’t have macaws in my backyard and I hate thinking they’re on the verge of extinction.

O programa de Ensino de Inglês como Língua Estrangeira é resultado da parceria entre a Capes e o Instituto de Educação da Universidade de Londres (IOE) para promover a capacitação de docentes de Língua Inglesa vinculados à rede pública de Educação Básica.
Com a parceria, a Capes pretende oferecer aos professores da Educação Básica a oportunidade de aperfeiçoamento profissional por meio de ações de cooperação internacional, uma estratégia já adotada, com êxito, na qualificação de docentes e pesquisadores que atuam na pós-graduação stricto sensu.
