Bridges Project

O projeto Bridges nasceu da vontade genuína em promover interações interculturais de qualidade para alunos de inglês de todas as partes do mundo. Os encontros acontecem regularmente através da plataforma Zoom, onde os participantes têm a oportunidade de desenvolver a conversação bem como sua competência intercultural através de atividades elaboradas por um time de renomados professores internacionais.

O nome Bridges – pontes, em inglês – foi escolhido por simbolizar as oportunidades de ultrapassar fronteiras, ressignificar conceitos, quebrar paradigmas e, assim, promover o respeito entre diferentes culturas.
