About

Hi, I’m Valéria Benévolo França and I’m an ELT professional, who’s been involved in English language teaching for around 20 years. I currently work as the Head of a Teacher Training department in an English language teaching institution in Brazil . I hope to use this blog to share some of my experiences and some of the challenges which our profession sometimes brings us.

  1. Dear Valeria – My name is John Arnold; James Taylor suggested that I contact you. I am the events officer for BELTA (Belgian English Language Teachers Association – http://www.beltabelgium.be) and we are constantly looking for great speakers for our Webinar Series. James thought you be a great addition to our line up. Could you email me at john.arnold@thomasmore.be so i could send more information? Thanks!

  2. Hi! I commented on Henrick Oprea’s the other day and he suggested I take a look at your blog, so I came right over. I live in Mãncio Lima, Acre, Brazil and am looking for EFL teachers in Brazil to connect with, especially EFL teachers who teach in public schools. I am hoping to share new ideas, and insights into how to improve my teaching in the Brazilian context, especially since I was not raised in Brazil and was not trained to teach English (my degree is in Mathematics).
    Thanks for your wonderful blog. I found your latest post “It’s all about being in the room…” very insightful. I will be visiting often.
