Assunto:  Lecture me on the art of lecturing
 
Mensagem: 

Tiago, you are correct.  Be aware that "to lecture" also means "to scold". 

 

Americans tend to prefer "to teach" to "to lecture". 

 

Also be aware that the British tend not to use an article before "university" (just as you did not do), but Americans almost always do.  "He teaches at the university."
However, Americans say "He went to college", "She is in college", etc.  Odd.  Just another detail to fill your mind.
