I am glad to announce that this blog will soon be moved to a new address. I have decided to use set it up on my own domain. At the moment I am working on some final details before I launch it officially. Check out the new blog at http://blog.followenglish.com.br/.

First post

May 18, 2010

This is the very first post. So, I thought it might be useful to write about the followenglish project. In other words, it’s always good to start from the beginning.

In May 2009 I came up with the idea of opening a company. But as I have three jobs (not to mention the Cambridge oral exams, which I do twice a year) and do not have the money to invest in order to start it up, I realized I needed to let my idea rest first. By doing that I can allow it to develop more naturally so that I do not make any harsh moves before I actually think up some kind of plan of action.

So, this blog is intended to help me develop my idea of starting up a company as well as to explore the possibilities and challenges that will come my way. I also see it as another tool for learning and sharing with others. In addition to that, I believe and hope that this blog will help me see more clearly the new trends in teaching and online teaching. Last, but not least, I expect it will give me some insights on what learners of English are looking for and what they need in order to learn more effectively and naturally.

I know that’s quite a lot to expect from a blog, but hopefully my idea will be fruitful and productive.
