Improve language through reading

For those of you who want to try improving their language with the specific terms of the textile language - poem reading is one of the best ways of doing so! The different rhythmics of a poem creates a very different experience for the human brain - the associations, the images they provoke, the pace of reading and the rimes whether they are there or not bring a full language development no other reading text can do.

Here, we present to you the magical world of Dores Tembras from her book "O pouso do fume" ("The Dregs of Smoke"), as well as few more examples from the classic literature - these are just to demonstrate the unlimmited sources one could find when decides to look closely at the books around - find more and share with your family and friends, in class or at the meet-ups and gatherings we all go.


Happy Reading!
