A community for all teachers of English in Rio Grande do Norte.

The idea of this website is to create a user-friendly web-based blog on the web where both members and non-members of Braz-Tesol (Brazilian Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) can interact, facilitating communication between those actively involved in the events that our local chapter, founded in 2010, organises.

Teachers from Public Schools, Private Schools, Universities and Language Courses, as well as Freelance English Teachers are all welcome to post comments and contribute to discussions here.

BRAZ-TESOL (http://www.braz-tesol.org.br) is Brazil’s largest association of teachers of English to speakers of other languages. A not-for-profit organization with a membership of over 2,000 professionals.

The BRAZ-TESOL RN (BTRN) chapter’s members are leading TESOLers (Teachers of English as a Second or Other Language) who understand the importance of the English language for the Brazilian community and invest their time, talents, energy and even financial resources to provide the language teaching community with excellent opportunities for both personal and professional development.
