Upgrade to French 6

Nouveau ROND-POINT 2


The 2015/2 semester final scores were announced last week and I was happy to know that I have finished French 5 course with grade A.
Right after being aware about that, I promptly did my subscription to French 6 for 2016/1.

I am thankful to my 2015/2 classmates and specially to Prof. Hudson Goltara, who delivered most of the classes in that semester.

From French 4 to French 5 we moved to a new students book, better suited to the needs of learners, more pleasant and easier to read due to its appealing graphic design, but the most important contribution came from the classmates and the teacher who built a pleasant atmosphere to the class activities, from small state ads in unit 1 to the chinese portrait game in unit 5.

unfortunately, due to adjustments in my schedule, I had to change my class timetable … and be apart from my dear 2015 classmates to whom I let here my farewell message, of course, in french:

By the other side, here is my greeting message to the Français Six Class Group 5 classmates:

icon-quote-left il me tarde de vous rencontrer icon-quote-right

and to all the ones who read this post, to celebrate the jump to the new stage I let the closing message:

icon-quote-left allons-y au prochain niveau!icon-quote-right
(let´s go to the next level!)

2015 Annual professional review


One year has passed since my decision on December, 2014 to focus a bit more in my academic career.

In the beginning I had to review my schedule and make a difficult choice: exchanging arts for science –  the piano, keyboard and singing classes were cancelled to make room for research meetings in the Lab.

Now I look back and feel that it was a decision definitely worth making. I have much more academic achievements  this year than in the past five years. Moreover, there is art in science! As said in the quote by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton featured in a chapter opening in my PhD Thesis:

“Art and science have their meeting point in method.”

For the upcoming year the goal is to keep the pace and deliver more.

This is what I wish for me, for my friends and coworkers and for the ones who helped me carry out these achievements bellow!

Ahead to French 5!

2015 French Course - passed to 5th degree


This post should have been be written in french …!

After being hesitant in continue taking my french course for years, I have reviewed my schedule and, with the help of my family, I succeeded in making room for my French language classes.

Now I am happy to had taken the French 4 course in this first semester of 2015 with final grade A. The French 4 Students group has played an important role in this achievement, making me feel warmly welcomed, so that I have enjoyed a lot the Saturday morning classes at UFES Language Center.

I am specially thankful to Mr. Marcos Roberto Machado, the best language teacher I have ever had! By the way, the ones who love the French language should take a look at his blog.

C’est parti French 5  …!
