A 20-hour English Language Fellows course for 36 public school English language teachers was completed in the municipality of Palmares (125 kilometers from Recife) at the Escola Erem Abílio Américo Galvão. The course is part of on-going Public School Teacher Development Program (PSTDP) in Pernambuco in partnership with the Education Secretariat for English language teachers in the state public school system. Teachers received certificates and kits of English language teaching materials.
According to the representative from the Educational Secretariat in Palmares, Paula Frassinete, this was an unique opportunity for the teachers. “For most of the teachers, this was the first time that they received English training”, said Paula Frassinete.
