An Ideas Page by Omar Villarreal and Marina
18 April 15th
Dear SHARERS ,
After all it was a very good idea
to tell you about Marina´s "official" birthday last Saturday, Not only because
Marina received more mails than the four Spice Girls rolled together and was
super happy to see how much our SHARERS care about us and our
Secondly because it helped to
clarify my and her marital status. Many SHARERS simply did not know Marina was
my wife. They thought she was just a colleague (which incidentally she also
Thirdly, because it got many people
interested in our family. Well, Marina and me are mummy and daddy to two boys
and a doberman : Martin, who is going to be 14 on April 29th, Sebas, who is
going to be 12 on July 1st ( He stole my birthday party forever : I was born on
a Wednesday 30th of June) and Ernie,
our ecological brown doberman (complete
with his original ears and tail).
Not very exciting ? Probably not .
We are just another Argentinian family and we are very happy to be your

RESIGNATION TO ADULTHOOD
A very dear friend, Nora Séculi, email@example.com sent us this
heart-warmer from Rosario. She says "it is a little something
to brighten up a rainy Sunday" We believe it is much more than that
Where do I sign up...
I am hereby officially
my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept
responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.
I want to go to McDonald's and
that it's a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a
puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.
I want to think M &
M´s are better than
money because you can eat them.
I want to lie under a
big oak tree and
run a lemonade stand with my friends on
a hot summer's
I want to return to a time when life was
simple; When all you
knew were colours,
multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes,
but that didn't bother you,
you didn't know what you
didn't know and you didn't care.
All you knew was
to be happy because you were
blissfully unaware of all the things
that should make you worried or
I want to think the world is
that everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is
I want to be oblivious to the
complexities of life
and be overly excited by the little
I want to live simple again.
I don't want my day to consist
computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,
depressing news, how to
survive more days
in the month than there is money in the
bills, gossip, illness,
and loss of loved ones.
I want to believe in
the power of
smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth,
justice, peace, dreams, the
mankind, and making angels in the snow.
So . . . here's my
and my car-keys, my credit cards
I am officially resigning
And if you want to discuss this
further, you'll have to
..."Tag! You're it."
Nora is the
president of one of the biggest Teachers´Associations in our country, APrIR and
has just been re-elected to serve another term in FAAPI´s Executive Committee.
Congratulations, dear SHARER !

COUNTRIES AND POOR COUNTRIES : A QUESTION OF
The following message was
given to Omar by a colleague in his last trip to Mendoza last February.
Omar and me were always in two minds about publishing it. We thought
about the spirit of SHARE (free from any political leanings) and we did not want
to contradict it in any way. But a conversation we had a few days ago with two
friends about the causes of underdevelopment coupled with a very recent academic
discussion Omar had on same topic, prompted us to SHARE this message with you
with an open invitation for reflection and debate.
LAS CAUSAS DEL
"Los deseos primarios de
toda persona son ganar más dinero, progresar y ser
felices. Una forma
efectiva de lograr estos anhelos es siendo ricos. Así como hay personas pobres y
personas ricas hay países pobres y países ricos.
La diferencia entre los
países pobres y los ricos no es la antigüedad del país. Lo demuestran casos
de países como India y Egipto, que tienen miles de años de antigüedad
y son pobres.
En cambio, Australia y Nueva Zelandia son países
jóvenes, desarrollados y ricos.
La diferencia entre
países pobres y ricos tampoco está en los recursos naturales con que cuentan,
como es el caso de Japón que tiene un territorio muy pequeño y
el 80% es montañoso y no apto para la agricultura y ganadería, sin
embargo es la segunda potencia económica mundial pues su territorio es como
una inmensa fábrica flotante que recibe materiales de todo el mundo y los
exporta transformados. Suiza no tiene océano, pero que tiene una de
las flotas navieras más grandes del mundo; no tiene cacao pero tiene el
mejor chocolate del mundo; Al igual que Japón no tiene recursos
naturales, pero da y exporta servicios, con calidad muy difícilmente
inteligencia o la raza de las personas es la diferencia, como lo demuestran
estudiantes y científicos de países pobres que emigran a los países ricos y
logran resultados excelentes en sus carreras.
La ACTITUD de las
personas es la diferencia. Al estudiar la conducta de
las personas en
los países ricos se descubre que la mayor parte de la población
las siguientes reglas (el orden es por supuesto aleatorio)
1. La Moral como
2. El Orden y la Limpieza
3. La Honradez
5. La Responsabilidad
6. El Deseo de superación
Respeto a la ley y los reglamentos
8. El Respeto por el derecho de los
9. Su Amor al trabajo
10. Su Afán por el ahorro
No sería suficiente con cumplir y hacer cumplir estas 10 simples
Aquí y en el resto de los países pobres, sólo una mínima parte
de la población sigue estas reglas en su vida diaria. No somos
pobres porque a nuestro país le falten riquezas naturales, o porque la
naturaleza haya sido cruel con nosotros, simplemente nos falta
carácter para cumplir estas premisas básicas de funcionamiento de las
Tal vez haya mil y una
causas más para nuestro subdesarrollo, causas internas y de las otras, causas
que podemos controlar nosotros y de las otras que escapan a nuestro control,
pero qué bueno sería si pudiéramos compartir este mensaje con otras
personas, reflexionar y actuar en consecuencia... Quién sabe, a lo
mejor podemos ayudar aunque sea en una ínfima medida a que en algunos
años más vivamos en un país un poco menos subdesarrollado.
(4) FROM "OUR REPORTER" IN THAILAND !!
As SHARE grows we get
reporters in the most unbelievable parts of the planet.
Today Claudio Capuzzi, a young and
energetic teacher from Chacabuco in the province of Buenos Aires, sends us his
Claudio is a very dear old friend
and the head of The Somerset School of English.
My dear friends Omar and
Thank you so much for your
SHARES ! They are really great to read and it's such a nice way of keeping in
I hope you received my postcard from
Thailand. It was such an amazing trip, with so many contrasts and such different
people, customs, religion, language and everything! I fell so in love with all
the places that I'd like to go back there next year.
We started in
Capetown - South Africa - where we stayed for a couple of days visiting Cape of
Good Hope and Cape Point, where the two oceans meet. We had rented a
car. It´s awesome to drive in the mountains there as you can see all kinds of
wild animals on he road. It's an area full of cliffs but occasionally there's a
white sandy beach where we usually stopped and had a swim although the water was
extremely cold. Brrrr !
Our next stop was in Phuket, the biggest
Thai island in the Andaman Sea. All this area is simply paradise !! Thousands of
islands with warm emerald green water, white sand, and the jungle behind them.
We stayed in Phuket for 9 days, rented a jeep, took boats to visit the different
islands, went to all the Buddhist temples in the region, did trekking in the
middle of the jungle to discover hidden bays with breathtaking beaches, and the
sunsets ! Wow ! Every sunset looked as if liquid gold was being
poured into the horizon. After this we spent 3 days in Bangkok visiting the
temples, the canals and the floating markets, The Grand Palace – the
biggest temple in Thailand - is a complex that holds such a profusion of
temples, so many images carved on stone and such a beauty that overwhelms the
senses of every visitor. This is the place where the Emerald Bhudda lies -
carved on a sole piece of jade, they found him buried hundreds of years ago in
the north of Thailand. I loved the madness of the city.
After Bangkok we flew 4 hours to get to
Bali, in Indonesia. The beaches were not even half as beautiful as in Phuket,
but going to the north to visit the Hindu temples lying on top of the mountains
and witness the sight of the clouds passing over the pagodas and the people
carrying their offerings on their heads wearing such particular costumes was
just unbelievable! The terraced rice fields on the mountains are something you
cannoot find anywhere else in the world . Balinese people were so kind and
friendly that we never felt far from home. After that we spent 4 days in
Singapore, very different from the surrounding countries, as this is really
a First World country with skyscrapers everywhere, monumental
shopping centres and... very well -off people. Can you believe it ? We
went on a night safari ! Walking along paths we could see active animals in their
natural habitats only metres away.
Our last stop was in Kuala Lumpur -
Malaysia - where we stayed for 2 days. The Petronas Twin Towers are the
landmarks of Kuala Lumpur, with a height of 452 m. based on the 5 pillars
of Islam. They were designed by an Argentinian architect!! Our trip
was over there but our minds were so filled with images that they keep coming to
us all the time. How we wished you and Marina had been there !
Claudio Capuzzi firstname.lastname@example.org
We are so glad to hear that you had a
great time and grateful for your SHARING your experience with all our SHARERS.
We are already thinking of some classroom
applications for your letter. Reading plus questions to check understanding
? Writing questions ? Simulating an interview or a press conference ? Listening
to the teacher read the letter and mark the itenerary on a map ? Having the
students write e-mails or letters to Claudio asking him for more details or
a few photographs ? Creating a story based on on one part of the letter, for
example "The Night Safari", As you
always say " ustedes no tienen remedio" !
We hope your wish to that we are
all together in those exotic lands one day comes true... next time
(5) HOW ABOUT LAUGHING FOR
TWO HOURS ?
Albert Canil, email@example.com from the Suburban Players
writes to us . He tells us about the story of this very well-known and
already traditional Theatre Group. Maybe his story can serve as a source
of inspiration to our SHARERS to start their own Drama Clubs at school or
college or their Theatre Groups in their towns and cities. We know there are
many well -established companies and other more informal groups
performing in English. We would be delighted to publish information about
them in the next issues of SHARE !
PLAYERS is the longest running English-Speaking amateur theatrical group
in Argentina, having been around since April 1963. Our objective, then and
now, is to stage plays in English for the enjoyment of the group of people
involved as well as for our audiences.
During these first 37 years we have
produced well over 100 shows, including dramas, comedies, farces, musicals and
thrillers at our own premises, The Playhouse, as well
as at other theatres, both in Buenos Aires and the interior of Argentina.
Being a non-profit organisation that collaborates on a regular basis with
established charities, we have helped community oriented fund raising campaigns;
we have also taken plays on tour to reach audiences that find it difficult to
come to Buenos Aires.
We have staged plays from the leading names
in drama: from Shakespeare to Shaw, from Pinter to Chekjov, including the texts
prescribed by Cambridge on its official reading list, thus affording English
learners a chance to actually see and hear what their “books” sound like.
PLAYERS is an open group that regularly holds auditions inviting
people to come and join in the manifold activities related to the actual
production of a play. We welcome people from all walks of life who want to
join in the fun, so, if you are interested in theatre, drop us a line and let us
know what you would be interested in doing with us.
Albert also sends us a reminder about
their latest play (announced in a previous issue of SHARE where you can find a
synopsis of the plot) : NUNSENSE directed by Laura Riera ( Musical Direction by Gustavo
Felice and Choreography by Lucrecia Badia) . Says Albert :
"Forget about troubles and tribulations,
relax and join in this uproariously funny variety musical that starts on April
7, and will be running thorughout the whole month of April (you may want to come
more than once!). "
"It's show time at Mount St. Helen
Covent. The Little Sisters of Hoboken are putting on a fund-raiser variety act
to get cash to bury 4 dead nuns, (currently in the convent freezer) before
the Board of Health runs its inspection. The Nuns put on a variety of
individual and group song and dance numbers, as well as a cooking lesson,
prize-givings, puppet shows, and a scene that must be seen to be believed: the
Reverend Mother unwittingly gets stoned. Interlaced in all this frenzied madness are touching songs
which reveal to us the true faith at the heart of every woman who chooses to
become a Nun."
When and Where ?
Fridays & Saturdays at 9pm .
Sundays at 7pm

contribution to all us SHARERS. We know Susan doesn´t like FWD´s but she made an
exception this time and we appreciate this message from a most hillarious

posted. We are sure both Mercedes and Emily will be glad to send you more
information about this fast-growing ESP
Interest Section in ARTESOL.
By the way, Did you know that Mercedes
published her own free electronic NEWSLETTER for EGB teachers ? Why
don´t you send her an
e-mail requesting subscription information ? We know she will be
delighted to process your request .
(8) MAIL FROM A
are not only proud to publish this e-mail by a talented and respected colleague
from Rosario but we are also genuinely happy to know that teachers
like Graciela are still around and like Graciela have direct managerial
responsibilities which means education is still in very good hands.
Our hats off to
somebody who trully reflects the spirit of SHARING, the reasons to be a teacher
I am one of the
people who used a story that appeared some time ago in one of your superb
SHARES. I already knew the story when I read it in SHARE, and I even had it in a
computer-folder called 'Interesting Stuff', without any acknowledgement,
I'm sorry to say. I was therefore unable to quote the original source of
such a moving story, and it was only when I read Susana Bosso's reference
in this last Share (17) that I realised I had also read the story here. I'm so
sorry! It is true that most of the 300 people in the audience were in tears when
I finished reading. In fact the story is so touching that when I heard the round
of applause I felt it was really Mrs Thompson who deserved such recognition. I
asked the organisers to make copies of the story to make sure everyone got one.
I suggest perhaps it might be a good idea to post it again some day for
other people to share. My talk was on evaluation and the story rounded up my
thoughts as to how unimportant marks are sometimes,and also how relative their
value... especially for those who suffer,
Thank you for
sharing! This space is simply wonderful! Not just because it contains useful
professional tips, information and ideas, but also because it gives room for
feelings. Caring and sharing... Isn't that what teaching is all
to you and Marina (Happy Birthday too!).

(9 ) REACH FOR RAINBOWS.
A very dear friend from Azul and a most faithful SHARER ,
Silvia Benson sends us this poem by Colin McCarty. Ideal to pin up in your
classroom and in your hearts. Silvia, email@example.com is a Lecturer at
Universidad Nacional del Centro de la Provincia de Buenos Aires and has
specialized in the process of writing. She has presented papers on this topic in
many natuonal and international congresses in our field.
you don´t ever take chances,
won´t reach rainbows.
you don´t ever search,
never be able to find.
you don´t attempt to get over
never discover how wonderful
is to live without them.
you don´t go beyond difficulty,
won´t grow any stronger.
you don´t keep your dreams alive,
won´t have your dreams any longer.

Hi ! My name is Mirta Zampini, firstname.lastname@example.org, and I am one of
your Dear SHARERS. Today I would like to share with you a very nice
poem someone sent to me. I don't know if you can include it in one of your
SHARES but at least, I think, it can warm your hearts. Thanks for the time you
devote to this e-mails. They are really worth it !
in my hands two boxes which God gave me to hold
said, "Put all your sorrows in the black,
your joys in the gold."
I heeded His
words, and in the two boxes
Both my joys and
sorrows I stored
But though the gold became heavier
The black was as light as before
With curiosity, I opened the black I
wanted to find out why
And I saw, in the base of
the box, a hole
Which my sorrows had fallen out by
I showed the hole to God, and mused
"I wonder where my sorrows could be."
He smiled a gentle smile at me."
"My child, they're all here with me."
I asked, "God, why give me the boxes,
Why the gold, and the black with the hole?"
"My child, the gold is for you to count your
The black is for you to let
Thank you, Mirta. We loved your poem and it really
warmed our hearts. We will be looking forward to more contributions from a dear
SHARER like you .

learn from each other.There are 11 discussion groups at the moment and there are
some technological problems sometimes ( I am transmitting lots of info and

times in the "rush hours"
Please do have a look at the discussion lists and the penpals lists. I
