New Book from our NOSHA Friend in Brazil!

Hugo Dart, NOSHA’s longtime friend in Rio de Janeiro, has just published the book Making Connections: A Practical Guide to Online Intercultural Exchanges, based on an ongoing project he coordinates.

Here’s a short description: Online collaboration can be a powerful means of encouraging language learners to make connections between their local community and people from other cultural backgrounds.

The authors of this book draw on 20 years of participation in numerous online intercultural exchanges to offer teachers a down-to-earth guide to finding partners, choosing a platform and designing online exchanges.

Congratulations, Hugo, on this accomplishment!
