Adrienne Hurley Toledo

Adrienne Hurley Toledo is British and has taught English in Brazil for over 30 years. She has taught English as a second language since high school, and has given classes for students of all ages in Europe, the United States and Brazil besides raising two bilingual children. Curiosity about the difficulties of learning a second language led Adrienne to do a graduate course in psychopedagogy. Her monography, “The Difficulties of Adults in Learning a Second Language” investigates the challenges that adults face to learn a new language compared to children. Her experience and competence as an English teacher, knowledge of the language acquisition processes and of child development motivated Adrienne to create and develop Johnny’s World.

Watching my granddaughters learn two languages and remembering my children’s learning inspired Flávia and I to create English Language Home (ELH) and the material for Johnny’s World”
