The groups... Fantastic people!

When we started this journey, we began by looking into the verb tenses in English: Present, Past and Future and all their variations - the perfect and the continuous. Now, the students have used those tenses to introduce themselves to the world... Meet them here!

My name is Ana Luíza, I am 18 years old. I like to make new friends. I am in the 3rd. year of high school on Maristão. I've been studying there since 2006. Before I go to Marista, I studied at Mackenzie for 11 years. Now, I am preparing myself to the vestibular of the UnB. I hope to be a very successful professional and to be married in a few years. I will have graduated when I get a child. I used to play squash, but I'm not playing anymore to study for the vestibular. I hope to play again when I pass. I took my driver's license this year. And, this year, I have also done two special courses at CTJ. I've been studying English since 1999.

I've learned how to drive a few months ago and I was wondering when I will be able to get my driver's license. I had danced ballet for seven years when I decided it would be nice to have a life, so I quit it. Lately, I have been studying a lot at school and, hopefully, I'll be in university next year. I've been studying at CTJ since 2002 and I've done many different courses.

Hi, Lueli and Ana Luiza, Camila, Guilherme, Augusto, and Laís.

I enjoyed reading the student writing. I was especially interested in seeing how you used the English verb tenses in personally meaningful ways. Parabéns!

My name is Dennis. I'm an old, old guy, and I love interaction with students. I live in Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A. and have been living here for more than 18 years. I used to be an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher, but I'm no longer teaching. However, I enjoy keeping in touch with international colleagues and friends, and, thanks to the Internet, I'm able to do that whenever I want.

I've been involved in ESL for more than 35 years and have worked with students from at least 50 different countries.

Good luck in your studies!

andrea said...

My name is Andréa, I'm 19 years old. I was born in Brasília. I live with my parents and with my two older brothers. I study law at Ceub.I'm in the 4th semester now. Before going to Ceub, I studied at Sigma (from the 5th until 3rd year). Next year I will start working in a law office to practice everything I've been learning at university. I love swimming and going to gym! It's my relaxing time! I love going out to restaurants, to the cinema and of course to night clubes (they are my favorites). I really enjoy studying other languages. Right now, I'm doing Advanced grammar to improve my English and I'm, also studying French. Last year I spent one month in France and since that I got really interested in cultural and hystorical stuff. Next semester I plan to do another English course and maybe travel to the US. I will be able to improve my curriculum after going there and doing a one or two months course. I will graduate in 3 years and I expect to be a very good lawyer. I plan to get married and to have children (at least 3). I want to built a beautiful family and give them a happy life like the one I have!

My name is Francisco. I am 31 years old. I was born in São Paulo and I have lived in Brasilia since 2001. Before I came here I lived abroad. I spent two years in Guyana where I took two semesters of a Computer Science course at Guyana University. That was when I found out that I don´t like numbers. So, I quit and decided to take another course. I chose Modern Languages and Literature. I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literature and I´ve been teaching English for five years. I have studied English since I was twelve. Advanced Grammar is my first course at Casa Thomas Jefferson and I intend to take other courses here. I am christian. I like reading the Bible and christian books. I also enjoy listening to Gospel music. I am a sports fan and my favorite sport is swimming. I am Flamengo´s fan. When I get married my wife must respect it :-)Watching movies is one of my hobbies.

Geyziane said...

I'm Geyziane Patrícia, I'm 23 years old. I have been studying English since I was 15. Although I have difficulties, I like studying Enghish. Advanced Grammar is really interesting for me. I am learning details which I had never imagined. I was born in Brasília. I have never traveled abroad, but I would love to visit England so that I can improve my English. I don't think of stopping my English studyies, so, maybe we can met on line again.

Bye.
