I am an English Professor at the Federal University of the ABC Region (UFABC) in Santo André, Brazil.

I set up this site because my field of research concentrates on writing in a foreign language. I believe that writing is not only an important skill in and of itself, it is also important practice for speaking. Most foreign-language students have far more opportunities to communicate by writing in a foreign language than by speaking it with someone else who understands the language. I hope I can contribute to your studies of a foreign language.
