Abstract: In this session I will describe the experience of taking part in a nine-week educational and cultural exchange program (financed by SETEC/CAPES) in the United States of America this year. I will report on the TESOL program I attended at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) along with 73 Federal Institution teachers from all over Brazil. In addition, I will give an account of some curiosities and impressions I find interesting about the places where I have been, as it was my first time visiting this country, and how this experience has impacted my life as an English teacher.
