Brazilian Movie Talk Class
This was your first contact with our friends from Russia. In the pictures, we are posting comments/questions in the blog.
Read some students'introductions:
Hi! I am Rodrigo Saldanha, a student from the Movie Talk course of Casa Thomas Jefferson. I was born in Brasília and I’ve lived here all my life. It's a nice place to live. I enjoy playing soccer, tennis and watching movies at the movie theater. My favorite kind of movie is comedies and I would like to watch some Russian movies and be closer to the Russian culture.
Hi! My name is Ana Carolina Faria and I am 16 years old. I live in Brasília, the capital of Brazil. It is an amazing place to live and I like it very much here. English has played a big part in my life; I have been speaking it since I was 4 years old and can't imagine my life without it. I love the English language. I enjoy going to the movies, listening to music and hanging out with my friends. I have been interested in Russia for about five to six years now, and I think it’s an amazing country. My interest in Russia started because I saw the Anastasia movie. I'm planning of going there in the near future. I am very interested about one city, St. Petersburg, I would really like to see the Winter Palace, learn about the culture and many other things.
Hi there! I'm Danilla. I'm from Brasília, the capital of Brazil. I’ve lived here since I was born. So...it's been 27 years. I graduated in Modern Languages (English/Portuguese) and I'm taking a post graduation course in Psycho-Pedagogy. I love spending my time with my family. I'm married and have a girl, Larissa and a boy, Lucas. On my free time, I'm fond of being around friends, chatting, watching movies, listening to music and I do like going to church. We are Baptists. I used to teach English for high school students till last year. Then, I had to quit for a while in order to study for the post graduation. However, it's only a matter of time and I'll be teaching again. I do believe in my profession and really think that if we, as teachers, are not prepared to learn then; we are not prepared to teach. Hope to hear from you soon. God bless you all!
Hi, My name is Angela Banhos. I'm a Brazilian lawyer, and I live in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. I have two kids (Joao Carlos, a 16-year-old boy and Fernanda, a 14-year-old girl). I love traveling, movies, reading, good food and good wine. I also love going to the beach, playing tennis and skiing (abroad, because we don't have snow here in Brazil). I’ve never been in Russia, but I really want to make a visit someday. I believe in friendship, and I also believe in a better world to the other generations. Well, it is impossible to forget that I love Internet and English, because both make people closer and the world smaller!
Hi! My name is Elizabeth Cosmo, 19 years old. I'm from Brasília, the capital city of Brazil, and I study International Relations at the University of Brasília. I'm very interested in the study of languages (just like you are!), and I've already completed courses in English and in Spanish. I currently study German and French. I like to learn about other countries and cultures, which is very important to me since I am an International Relations student. I like to read a lot and I also love going to the movies, I like all kinds of films. I like to spend my free time with my friends, going out, dancing or just talking and laughing. I love music, especially rock, traveling and meeting new people.
Hello! My name is Carol and I'm a 21-year-old Brazilian girl. I'm studying English at Casa Thomas Jefferson. I've already finished the regular course but I feel I have to improve my skills in English. I study Biology, I teach classical Ballet, I dance Ballet, I'm an intern at a laboratory and I'm always busy (actually, I'm always looking for something to do).
I like to meet people (especially foreign people). So, I'll be glad to chat with you.
