Links: English for Teens 8 (co-authored with Amadeu Marques). São Paulo: Ática, 2009.
Links is a collection of 4 English books for the first four years of secondary education in Brazil (Years 6-9 of Ensino Fundamental).
This collection has been approved by the Brazilian Programa Nacional do Livro Didático [Textbook National Programme] 2011.
The collection is built on the assumption that English learning has to be developed from connections those learners already have with the English language, namely: the Internet, music, movies, TV series, food and drink, sayings on T-shirts to name a few.
Those connections gain life in the collection through two sets of Brazilian students and their teachers of English. Over the years, those students — and the ones who learn English through Links — develop their knowledge not only about the target language but also about themselves and the world surrounding them.
