  1. Experiencing the Affective Language Learning Workshops one year ago was a worthwhile opportunity to develop my educacional practice as well as my Self!
    I got really motivated and satisfied with the reflections and practices we could share and learn together!
    Considering I had already closeness to the theme by having researched emotional issues on the identity construction in teaching and learning foreign languages, I felt instigated and inspired by Juan s passionate work to go further!
    Thank you very much for the opportunity and I strongly recommend it!
