ABOUT THE TEACHER

Hi, I'm Fernando Machado Silva, born in Lisbon, and for me teaching is a part of human development, an encounter of two minds. It is not just providing some knowledge, but instigating a dialogue, as long as both, teacher and student, are willing to exchange thoughts concerning the matter at hand. Hence, it is the intensification of responsability (acting as an answeraribility) and respect. My personal interests concern literature (poetry and prose from all centuries), philosophy, performative arts (such as theater, dance, performance, etc.), cinema and most of the music genders. Other interest is translation, as a hobby but also professionally. And writing, for my blog, newspapers, specialized magazines and for my own carreer as writer and poet.

Olá, chamo-me Fernando Machado Silva, nasci em Lisboa e, para mim, ensinar trata-se de um acto de desenvolvimento humano, um encontro de duas mentes. Não é só um caso de providenciar um conhecimento, mas fomentar um diálogo, desde que ambos, professor e estudante, estejam abertos para a troca de pensamentos em torno de certas questões. Assim, é a intensificação da responsabilidade (enquanto dar resposta a alguma coisa) e do respeito. Os meus interesses pessoais são a literatura (poesia e prosa de todos os séculos), filosofia, artes performativas (teatro, dança, performance, etc,), cinema e a maior parte dos géneros musicais. Outro interesses é a tradução, como hobby mas também profissionalmente. E a escrita, para o meu blog, em jornais, revistas especializadas e para a minha carreira enquanto escritor e poeta.

TEACHER EXPERIENCE

I have mainly taught actor training (Évora) and culture theory (Lisbon), to various people and different ages, but due to my continuous research as a PhD student and researcher in philosophy, as well as keeping a practice as a translator and writer, and a passion for languages I want to develop my teaching experience in this field.
