Hey guys and welcome to the first episode of the Inglês Nu e Cru podcast!
In this episode, I am going to give an introduction to what this podcast is all about, our philosophy about learning English, and some tips to start improving your English today. I hope you like it.
First, a little about me.
My name is Foster. F-O-S-T-E-R. Nome esquisito. Eu sei.
I'm was born and raised in the US, but have spent much of my adult life traveling the world. Professionally, I'm an English teacher and a legal and financial translator. But I also like to consider myself a lifelong learner, linguist, musician, and traveler.
So why should you listen to what I have to say?
Well, after years of teaching English to Brazilians everyday, I think I have learned some important things.
First and foremost, almost all of my Brazilian students commit the same mistakes when learning English. Let me explain.
The first big mistake is the traditional approach to learning English in Brazil.
Most Brazilians learn English more or less with this approach.
You begin with learning how to read and write.
Next come grammar theories, you know, the book is on the table, etc
Finally, you try to translate this knowledge into conversation.
