Foreign languages teachers (Portuguese for foreigners, English, French and Spanish).


Our idea is to train foreign language teachers through reflection and the creation of teaching materials, combining theory , practice and creativity . Our focus is on the process and not just the result!

The proposal is that at the end of the course, we have an excellent didactic unit! To do this, we will show you how to use Miro, which is a tool that gives us many possibilities to work as a team and idealize projects with several people at the same time.


The methodology of the course is mainly based on practice with discussions and moments of content evaluation.


The main topics we cover in the course:

  • Using the syllabus
  • Levels of competence
  • Theoretical-methodological principles
  • Brief introduction to the concept of culture
  • Evaluation and creation of teaching activities


  • Weekly availability of 10 hours out of the live sessions to work with the course activities.
  • Availability to work and collaborate in a group.
  • Willingness to use and learn to use the necessary tools in the course: Miro, Canvas Instructure, Zoom and Telegram.
  • Familiarity with the Zoom tool.
