I have been a while away from my blog due to the end of the semester and all the correcting, assessing, etc. Also, I took 2 weeks off and traveled to Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, where I am at the moment.
In Rio de Janeiro, I attended the 9th ABCI Conference www.abci2010.com.br where around 800 English teachers from Culturas Inglesas all over Brazil met for 3 days. There were many different workshops and talks on various topics in ELT. Special guests included Jeremy Harmer, Ben Goldstein, Marc Prensky and David Crystal.
I learned a lot in just a short period of time and I’m anxious to spread it with the ELT community. On the next few weeks I’ll post on my blog the best of ABCI 2010.
