I’m Claudio Franco...
PhD in Applied Linguistics (UFMG) Associate Professor (UFRJ) EFL author and teacher trainer
I have been involved in English language teaching for over 15 years. I hold a PhD in Applied Linguistics – with a focus on technology and English teaching and learning. I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I have been Professor of English at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) since 2011, where I teach undergraduate and graduate courses.
As an EFL author, I have published a number of English coursebooks for public and private schools. I have written (with Kátia Tavares) different coursebooks approved by PNLD (Programa Nacional do Livro Didático).
I find it fascinating to work as a teacher trainer and learn more about teachers’ needs and interests. Some of my research interests include: English Language Teaching and Learning; E-learning and Teaching; The Use/Integration of Technology in Education; Teacher Education.
