Due in part to the retirement of my colleague Mariza Riva de Almeida, I was kindly invited to help coordinate the growing Inglês sem Fronteiras program at UFPR, now referred to officially as Idiomas sem Fronteiras. (Info on the program in general can be found here and also check out the UFPR IsF Facebook page.) I hope to be able to carry on the great tradition of excellence started by Mariza there, and to learn from student teachers, who I have come to admire.
Inglês sem Fronteiras
On January 20th, I officially became employed as a full-time faculty member at the Modern Languages department of the Universidade Federal do Paraná in Curitiba, Brazil.
