Susan Holden has been visiting Brazil regularly over the last 25 years, as a publisher, textbook writer and teacher trainer. This has taken her into schools in both the public and private sectors in a period of immense change.
She has been associated with Macmillan over as many years, in various roles. As an author, she has written digital material - Animal World and Culture World - for MEC. Apart from Brazil, in the Macmillan Culture Readers series, and the titles in the Topics series, she is author of Encounters - English here and now (Macmillan do Brasil 2012-13), a four-level Service English course for Brazil.
