Can we talk about our English?

BRAZTESOL Higor Guarany

We are pleased to announce the line-up of speakers at the I BRAZ-TESOL Symposium. For our opening plenary, we have outstanding Higor Cavalcante. Higor  is a Brazilian teacher, teacher educator and ELT writer based in São Paulo-SP. He is currently the second vice president of BRAZ-TESOL and president of its TD SIG. His main interests in ELT include extensive reading, phonology and language development for English teachers.

Higor Calvacante argues that “No one would dispute a teacher of English must be a good classroom manager, skilled at preparing lessons, adapting and selecting materials, correcting students’ oral and written errors and much more. Do we, however, perhaps shy away from discussing how much (about) English a teacher should know, especially (but not exclusively) non-native English-speaking teachers (NNESTs)?”

In his opening plenary, Mr Cavalcante promises to “put this thorny issue on the table.” Come listen to and interact with Higor and other liked minded English Language Teaching colleagues at the English in a Changing World Symposium at IFRN (Campus Natal Central) on the 20th of August (Saturday).

Look forward to seeing you there.
