Journal History

BELT – Brazilian English Language Teaching Journal started in 2010 with the seal of PUCRS, through Edipucrs, under the coordination of teachers Cristina Lopes Perna (PUCRS) and Simone Sarmento (UFRGS). The motivation for the creation of the magazine came from the meetings between the Southern English Teachers Associations (APIRS, APLISC and APLIEPAR). On this occasion, BELT started with publications on English language teaching only and, in 2014/2, the magazine also started to publish articles on Portuguese as an Additional Language.
