    Hello everybody,

    My name is Everton and I'm an EFL teacher from Brazil. This is my first time as a TESOL member and I'm really excited of being a part of such an accredited association in my profession. Feel free to contact me.

    Hi Everton:

    Glad to have you join us!  I see from your profile that you wrote your BA dissertation on the creation of listening materials.  Do you have any wisdom to share from your research?

    Also, did you know that TESOL has 32 communities of practice?  Each one has its own dedicated discussion forum.  You might be interested in the Speech, Pronunciation, and Listening Interest Section (SPLIS) or the Materials Writers Interest Section (MWIS).

    Best wishes,

    Hi Nikki,
    Thanks for your interest in my research, but it's still untranslated into English. Guess I should start working on it, right? Thanks for the tip.

    Hi Everton -
    Good to see you.  I spent four years in Brazil a long time ago -  and it's still one of my favorite places!.  Where are you located? Are you teaching in schools or university or institute?  Love to hear what you're interested in.  Maybe other colleagues with similar interest can get in touch.
    Did you sign up for any interest sections when you joined?  A good place to join chats and webinars.
    Richard

    Hi Richard,
    I live south of Brazil in Porto Alegre, RS. I teach in public schools at the moment. Thanks for your tips. I'll look for them.
