Speak Up is celebrating 22 years! Since the beginning, in 1987 at Rio Gráfica Editora, your magazine has been good news for your English at Editora Globo, Editora Camelot, Editora Peixes, and now Editora Rickdan. We owe our long life to you, dear reader. You buy the magazine, become a subscriber, get in touch with the editorial staff; you read – and sometimes teach with – our articles; and you have helped us to weather many storms and to always come out stronger and wiser. We thank God for your interest in Speak Up and for your continued support of the magazine through the years. We love you and wish you – all of us, actually – a long life with many more celebrations!
