With the greatest sadness, the PETALL community informs you of the death of Professor António Lopes, on 14 December 2019. António was a dear friend and a valued colleague. He brought a high level of expertise and a breath of experience to the PETALL Project as well as to every project he would embrace.
He was a renowned language expert and published a wide list of scientific publications, nationally and internationally, in the areas of the English language and culture and the teaching of English. He was a guest speaker at several conferences and member of academic juries in Portugal and abroad.
He always showed great enthusiasm and availability in the way he embraced all activities and challenges, as well as requests for collaboration within the University of Algarve, his research centre CETAPS and other institutions. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family.
This year, the Third International Conference on New Trends in Foreign Language Teaching held in Granada, 13-15 MAY 2020, will be a tribute to Professor António Lopes. (Registration for former members of the PETALL project is free)
