III. Language Experience

My experience as to the English language dates back from my childhood years when I lived with Americans and, not only spoke the language, but also learned it grammatically.

Later on, as an electrical engineering student, I carried out English teaching activities in parallel and, every now and then, took freelance translation works.

As a support to my English activities, I have, so far, achieved the following certificates: "English Proficiency Certificate" issued by the University of Michigan, "English Teacher", issued by Brazil-USA Cultural Center, "Special Course in English", issued by Brazil-USA Cultural Center, "English Teaching Skills", issued by Brazil-USA Cultural Center and the American Embassy and "English Composition for Teachers" issued by Brazil-USA Cultural Center and American Embassy.

Also in the process of application to studies abroad, I took up the following English proficiency exams: TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), ALIGU (American Language Institute of Georgetown University, written and oral test . In both tests I achieved high scores. During my employment history I traveled abroad to take up courses and training in USA, France and Japan.
