Interview with Mirela Ramaciotti
Interview with Mirela Ramaciotti
In this episode, I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Mirela Ramaciotti... I'm just going to say it: she's like the godmother of MBE in Brazil. Mirela is amazing and so so knowledgeable. Her CV speaks for itself and I was thrilled to sit down with her and talk about all things Mind, Brain, and Education. She's exactly the type of person I could listen to for hours because the field she works in is fascinating and so applicable to what ELT professional need to do on a daily basis. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and get ready to learn how we learn.   Thank for watching/listening!
