Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being SHARED






Why not dreaming our dream together again? After more than a month´s leave (and still with our posting problem unsolved), we wanted to say “hello” again. We know

and you know that true friends never go away for good.

SHARE is a great effort but it´s a wonderful dream we like to keep on dreaming.

Let us start this comeback issue with a poem a dear SHARER, Natalia Carbonell, sent us:


Don't Ever Stop Dreaming Your Dreams


Don't ever be reluctant

to show your feelings when

you're happy, give in to it.

When you're not, live with it.


Don't ever be afraid to

try to make things better you might

be surprised at the results.


Don't ever take the weight of the

world on your shoulders.

Don't ever feel threatened by the future,

take life one day at a time.


Don't ever feel guilty about the past

what's done is done.

Learn from any mistakes you might have made.


Don't ever feel that you are alone

there is always somebody there

for you to reach out to.


Don't ever forget that you can achieve

so many of the things you can imagine. ...

It's not as hard as it seems.


Don't ever stop loving

don't ever stop believing,

don't ever stop dreaming your dreams.


Omar and Marina

Lic. Verónica Oelsner






Hello! (after a long holiday). Here is my humble and very virtual welcome back present. Allow me a brief introduction first.


You know I'm a Radio Days' guy (in fact, just a little bit younger than that), and some of you also acknowledge me undeservedly a mild reputation as an imaginative writer. Well, if the latter bears the least ounce of truth, you must blame 1950's children's radio theatre for it. I still remember how I enjoyed those marvelous broadcasts every day in the afternoon, and how I pictured in my mind's eye the situations enacted by the (then invisible) players.


So, imagine my happiness when --in a very serendipitous way-- I  found "The Mercury Theatre on the Air", a website featuring many recordings from the one-hour radio shows performed in the 1930's by the drama company founded by Orson Welles and John Houseman. These are the guys that put on air H. G. Wells' "War of Worlds" (Halloween, 1938) in such a vivid way that many people in the U.S. believed that Planet Earth was in fact being invaded by aliens.


This site can be accessed at:


and there you'll find gems like a 7:28 min. recording of a  conversation between H.G. Wells and Orson Welles (the latter announces he's finishing 'Citizen Kane'), a 39:35 min. radio special (1998) with interviews to the surviving members of ""The Mercury Theatre", and a lot of one-hour plays based on classical titles like Rebecca, A Christmas Carol, Mutiny on the Bounty, Beau Geste, The Count of Monte Cristo, Vanity Fair, The Citadel, Huckleberry Finn, Les Miserables, Dracula, Treasure Island, A Tale of Two Cities, The 39 Steps, The Count of Monte Cristo, Julius Caesar, The Immortal Sherlock Holmes, Around the World in 80 Days, The War of the Worlds, The Pickwick Papers and more.


Besides their usefulness as teaching/learning materials (comprehension, pronunciation, intonation, etc.), these recordings are simply a joy to listen (they even include Campbell Soup ads!). You can do it online (streaming Real Audio and MP3 formats) or by downloading them first to your computer. Both options are rather a pain in the neck, though: to listen the shows online you'll have to be connected at least one hour to the phone line; to download the files, you'll have to use a very fast

connection and a lot of disk space (most of the files "weigh" 27 Mb each; it took me 15-20 minutes on a cable modem to download one of these).


I've already downloaded the following, MP3 format: A Tale of Two Cities (26.7 Mb), Around the World in 80 Days (27 Mb), The War of the Worlds (27.8 Mb), A Christmas Carol (21.4 Mb), Counselor-at-Law (26.6 Mb), Mutiny on the Bounty (27.8 Mb), Vanity Fair (20.6 Mb), The Citadel (12.7 Mb), H.G. Wells Meets Orson Welles (1.7 Mb - the only one in a reasonable size), and Theatre of the Imagination (1988 radio special, 9.2 Mb).

Our dear friend Annie Altamirano sent us these bits of refreshing information:


1. In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. That's where the phrase, "goodnight, sleep tight" came from.


2.The sentence "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." uses every letter in the alphabet. (It was developed by Western Union to test telex/twx communications.)


3. The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because when it was built, engineers failed to takeinto account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building.


4. The phrase "rule of thumb" is derived from old English law which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb.


5. Ten percent of the Russian government's income comes from the sale of vodka.


6. Only one person in two billion will live to be 116 or older.


7. In Cleveland, Ohio, it's illegal to catch mice without a hunting license.


8. Thirty-five percent of the people who use personal ads for dating are already    



9. The world's termites outweigh the world's humans 10 to 1.


10. The 3 most valuable brand names on earth: Marlboro, Coca-Cola, and Budweiser, in that order.


11. In 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all the world's nuclear weapons combined.


12. It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer, and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month" or what we know today as the "honeymoon."


13. In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts. So, in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them to mind their own pints and quarts and settle down. It's where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's."


14. Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. "Wet your whistle," is the phrase inspired by this practice.


And last but not least...


15. In ancient England, you could not have sex unless you had consent of the King (unless you were in the Royal Family). When anyone wanted to have a baby, they got consent of the King & the King gave them a placard that they hung on their door while they were having sex. The placard had F.U.C.K. (Fornication Under Consent of the King) on it.


…Now you know where that came from.






Isidro M. Avila  from CONADU Histórica sent us this message to SHARE with our English Teaching community. The Subject is :  SOS University


Estimado amigo:


Este es un documento que acordamos enviar a los docentes, investigadores, becarios y amigos de todas partes del mundo pidiendo el repudio de las medidas del recorte a la educación. Rogamos leerlo y reenviar a todos los que considere conveniente.


As members of the Argentine university community, we are writing to the

international university scientific and academic community in order to express our thoughts and ideas about the facts which are enslaving the dignity of the university professors and the people in general.

The Government has decided to cut down the salary of state workers and

pensioners. This cut down has also been extended to the budgets of all national universities and in the salaries of the staff and researchers.

This cutting stresses the crisis at universities, taking away the rights of the young people of the country to study and the teachers to teach.

This cut is unconstitutional and contrary to human rights. It goes against the people and favours the destruction of the educational system, of health and of social security.

A country without education, without developing the scientific and technological knowledge, is a country which encourages humiliating dependence and lacks the freedom to decide its own destiny.

We beg university colleagues all over the world to send a letter of condemnation to the Ministry of Economy of the Government of Argentina  (e-mail: ) in defense of the education, of the health and of the social security of our Homeland.

Thank you.

Our dear friend and SHARER Maria Adelina Blaquier de Durán from Canelones, Uruguay sends us this tongue-in-cheek article:


Student Bloopers

Michael J. Sheehan


“Blooper” is defined as an embarrassing public blunder, but as long as it's someone else's mistake, most of us are quite capable of getting past the embarrassment to enjoy the humor. Not only have books appeared in recent years to document and preserve bloopers, but TV shows on the subject have delighted in exposing human fallibility, too - especially when authority figures are involved.

The word blooper, which first showed up between 1925 and 1930, has an interesting origin. In the early days of radio, a receiving set that wasn't finely tuned could generate antenna frequency signals that interfered with other nearby receivers. Based on what someone in those days thought they sounded like, these high-pitched sounds came to be called bloops, and the offending receiver was called a blooper.


The following bloopers were culled from student papers. The examples are presented for enjoyment, not for ridicule. We were all neophytes once, so there won't be a single reader among us who doesn't have empathy for the offenders. After all, the more we write or make public presentations, the more likely our turn will come. The best we can hope for is that some Boswell isn't sitting nearby with nothing better to do.

Composition teachers are always telling college students to write about what they know, so I suppose it's no surprise that many English 101 essays concern the libido. One student wrote, "A man gets very wick in the knees when he sees a beautiful woman." Perhaps he was trying out a variation on the venerable moth-and-candle-flame analogy. To overcome his shyness, he might try the method advocated by a classmate: "I want a TV program to be entertaining first of all, and then have a massage if one can be worked in." Not a bad idea; some of those commercials are interminable. A young woman suggested, "I feel if you are going to have sex with your boyfriend or your husband you should use some kind of conception." That may be the very reason one of her classmates warned, "Many young girls are getting pregnant every day." You'd think they'd learn the first day, wouldn't you? If we want to take a more optimistic view, we'll find it in this reassurance: "No one was engendered in the accident." Of course, sometimes pregnancy is desirable, as this student observed: "Women all over the country realize that to give birth to a child is their prim desire before they get past the age of reproduction." Well, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you, ma'am, but you're going to have to drop your propriety at least once.

The subject of patriotism received its share of attention, too. One student lamented, "We take our country for granite." On the other hand, given all those recent earthquakes, it's difficult not to pay attention to those tectonic plates, isn't it? Referring to an age-old custom, another student reminded us that, "When a public official dies, the flag hangs at half mass." I wonder if that also applies when the politician isn't Catholic. "Teach your children the Stars Spanish Banner" was a fervent exhortation found in another paper though monolinguists will surely take exception. And then there was the young man who thought that it was time to slow things down a bit when he wrote, "We can show our patriotism by flying the flag on holidays and by reading the Deceleration of Independence."

"These factory buildings are invested with rats" is not a line item I'd like to find in my retirement portfolio, but it indicates another category of concern for freshman writers: the workplace. Complaining about her grocery store colleagues, one student wrote, "The employees were arguing and using vaguer language." Actually, it hurts even more when they get specific, so things could be worse. I don't recall what industry the following student worked in, but it was obviously dangerous: "I was sitting at my station when something like a bulk of lightning hit me." That had to hurt. It also hurts when you feel powerless at work, as this young man complained: "I was the lowest person on the toll poll." That's something he'd better take up with the Road Authority or the Board of Elections. Referring to a co-worker, one young lady confided, "Sharon has a quick temple; you don't want to get in her way." I know what you mean; those pillars across the head can really smart. Managers are every worker's headache, as this student indicated: "They will always criticize you, but they may beat around the brush to avoid a discrimination suit." No doubt they sweep things under the rug, too.

We have always been told crime doesn't pay, but one student claimed that, "A person who murders and gets a life term will just come up for payroll and be on the loose again." Sadly, that sounds unfairly profitable to me. Another writer lamented, "Every time you pick up a newspaper or turn on your TV or radio, someone is killed." Good heavens - don't touch that dial! Siding with those who advocate owning a gun for self-protection, one woman wrote, "At least with a gun you have a frightening chance." Amen to that, sister. Speaking of crackheads in his neighborhood, another writer warned, "These people will robe you to support their habit." I don't suppose they leave a mint on your pillow, though. But there may be hope on the horizon, according to this essayist: "Prisons should make some people thank twice before doing wrong." Let's have another big Amen! from the choir for that one.

But the quote that has stayed with me for years, the one that haunts me on those long winter nights when I stare into the fireplace searching for the meaning of life, is this deliciously subtle one: "My arms are slender, with just enough hair on them to be unnoticeable." For me, that ranks right up there with the sound of one hand clapping.

Our dear SHARER Mercedes Rossetti, Past Chair ESP IS Artesol, writes to us:


Dear all,


As results of our election held by email of our ESP authorities we now welcome María Laura Rossi as our news chair in this organization and Sonia Suárez Cepeda as Incoming Chair. We also extend the welcome to María Susana González, who is now in charge of English for Research Purposes (ERP).

Needless to say our congratulations to all of them and the promise of our support and joint effort goes along as well.

You can see their biodata as well as their statements of purpose at the bottom of this message.

We wish to thank all those ESPers who contributed to this election with their vote and trust and , as usual, all comments and queries are absolutely welcome,


Kind regards to all,


Mercedes Rossetti



María Laura Rossi


EFL teacher, ELT Consultant and Teacher Trainer, has presented workshops at TESOL, IATEFL, ARTESOL and FAAPI Conferences in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, USA, England and Canada. She has contributed with articles to national and international publications on ELT. She is co- editor of ESP IS Argentina TESOL Newsletter and is pursuing an MA in Education with the University of Bath, UK.


Statement of purpose

Walking the ESP path  as  newsletter co-editor has been enriching.  A renewed challenge is now open. As Chair, I would help tighten the bonds already rooted and foster cooperation and networking among colleagues and associations  nationally and internationally . Sharing experiences and expertise would boost the highly-committed

ESP team and help it grow both personally and professionally.


María Susana González


EFL Teacher graduated from the INSP Joaquín V. González and a Licenciada en Letras graduated from the U.B.A At the moment she is attending a Master Program in Discourse Analysis at the U. B. A.. She is directing a High School in the City of Buenos Aires: Colegio Nº 10 and she is Assistant (Profesora Adjunta) in the Chair of Reading Comprehension in English at the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras at the U.B.A where she has been teaching since 1988.


Statement of purpose

As a Representative of English for Research Purposes, I would try to encourage teachers to get information about the latest research findings and to observe and reflect about the problems that appear in their groups of students. The constant

dialogue between theory and practice is useful to overcome teaching problems and the intuitions teacher have in their classrooms is a very good source of information for the beginning and development of research programs.


Sonia Suárez Cepeda


Sonia S. Cepeda holds an MA in Linguistics from the University of North Texas

and has been working at the University of La Pampa since 1984. She has received

honorary grants for her MA and for international seminars in the US.


Statement of purpose

As a prospective Chair of ESP IS Argentina , I 'd like to promote high professional

standards of instruction by encouraging experienced ESP practitioners and researchers to provide a centralized forum within the ARTESOL which , through colloquia, discussion groups, conventions, and papers, can foster communication among ESP members. I believe the best way to carry out this program is through a good networking program that represents the needs and concerns of all ESP professionals.






Our very dear friend and SHARER Claudio Vales Silva from Asunción del Paraguay sends us this “enlightnening” contribution:





You have two cows.  You keep one and give one to your neighbor.



You have two cows, the government takes them both and provides you with the milk.



You have two cows, the government takes them and sells you the milk.



You have two cows.  The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the  other, pays you for the milk and then pours it down the drain.



You have two cows.  You sell one and buy a bull.



You have two cows. You sell one, force the other to produce the milk of four cows, then act surprised when it drops dead.



You have two cows.  The government taxes you to the point that you must sell them both in order to support a man in a foreign country that has only one  cow which was a gift from your government.






Mary Godward, Information Services Manager of The British Council sent us this message:



Dear Omar,


The British Council publishes Literature Matters, a newsletter on literature in English. The latest issue is dedicated to the memory of Malcolm Bradbury, the great critic and novelist, who died on November 27th 2000. The articles in this issue reflect his key concerns: the teaching of creative writing, and the relationships between writers and critics, and between writing and new media.


Other articles in this issue deal with what writers think about writing on the net. The British Council's first internet writer-in-residence, Tom Rhys, talks about how he thought up 'Crazy World' for our website LearnEnglish; while the poet Martin Bates reflects on the future on internet writing. This issue also features details on the Literature Express, Jeremy Paxman's visit to Bulgaria and the first of a series of interviews with people involved in writing and teaching literature in the UK today.


If you would like a free subscription to this publication, please send the following details to


* Name and post

* Institution / School / University  where you teach

* E-mail address * Postal address * Phone number


I thought the Share readers would find this interesting. There are no costs

Our dear friend and SHARER Bethina Viale, Rosario sends us this story and “Lots of love” :


A man and his wife are awakened at 3 o'clock in the morning by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.

"Not a chance" says the husband - "It's three o'clock in the morning!" He slams the door and returns to bed.

"Who was it?" asks his wife.

"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.

"Did you help him?" she asks.

"NO, I didn't, it's three in the morning and it's pouring out!"

"Well, you've got a short memory," says his wife. "Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him."

The man does as he is told and gets dressed and goes out into the pounding rain and calls out into the dark: "Hello, are you still there?"

"Yes," comes the answer.

"Do you still want a push?" calls out the husband.

"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.

"Where are you?" asks the husband.

"Over here, on the swing" the drunk replies.

Electronic Learning

01-14 October 2001


The Centre for Advanced Placement Education (CAPE) at Discovery Collegiate and the Faculty of Education at Memorial University of Newfoundland would like to invite you to the first annual Bits and Bytes: The Evolution of Technology in Education. The CAPE in partnership with the Faculty of Education and STEM~Net is taking a leadership role in the development of resources to support delivery of virtual schooling and online programs in Newfoundland.

Bits and Bytes 2001: The Evolution of Technology in Education is directed at educators from the K-12 and post-secondary sectors that have an interest in online learning for students at all levels. The conference is an opportunity for teachers and administrators who may be considering opening an online school. The conference will feature a concurrent stream of sessions specifically for college and university faculty that are also applying information technology to teaching and learning. Unlike a conventional conference, this online symposium will be conducted entirely online. This will allow participation from a greater number of individuals, as funding and travel will not be issues that need to be overcome.

The online symposium will be held from 01-14 October 2001. On 21 October 2001, all participants will be sent an electronic document which will conclude the symposium.

The purpose of the symposium will be to:

* discuss trends and directions in online education

* provide an opportunity to network with online educators

* discuss priorities for online schools and post-secondary support for online learning

* discuss potential collaborations between educational authorities

* enable online educators to share current practices in online education

* explore opportunities for partnerships between the K-12 and post-secondary sectors concerning online educators


Additional information will be posted to the Bits and Bytes website at:

To become a participant, contact Michael Barbour at

The palest ink is better than the best memory.


If you must play, decide on three things at the start: the rules of the game, the stakes, and the quitting time.


He who sacrifices his conscience to ambition burns a picture to obtain the ashes.


He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.


Spanish proverb

Czech proverb


The big thieves hang the little ones.


Japanese proverb


Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.

Our dear friend and SHARER Victoria Fonseca writes to us :


Oscar Wilde School from Concepción del Uruguay invites teachers of English from all the country to make their students take part in this third edition of our Writing Contest.

Students could write either poetry or narrative, and they can send their production by post or through internet. It is open to all ages, from eight to eighty ( as Roald Dahl would say of his stories!).

Deadline is 1st October 2001.


Poetry has no minimum or maximum of words allowed, whereas for narrative "writers" must respect a minimum of 20 words for 8 year-olds to 200 for 17 or older year-olds ( 20 words are added per age).

This year LONGMAN is  providing us with the prizes, in a new attempt to support creative and encouraging experiences for learners.

For further details, do not hesitate to contact us:

Respuesta del alumno:      6 + 7 = 18


Comentario de la evaluación (recuerde que el profesor debe fundamentar la nota)


1. La grafía del signo seis es del todo correcta.

2. Se puede apreciar lo mismo con el siete.

3. El signo m{as nos dice, acertadamente, que se trata de una suma..

4. En cuanto al resultado, vemos que el uno es correcto. El segundo número, efectivamente no es ocho. Bueno, si lo cortamos por la mitad, en sentido vertical (8), observamos que el alumno ha escrito dos tres simétricos. Elegimos el bueno porque se ve que su intención es buena.


Evaluación: El conjunto de estas observaciones evidencia que:


a) La actitud del alumno es positiva (lo intentó)

b) Los procedimientos son correctos (los elementos están ordenados correctamente)

c) En conceptos, sólo se equivocó parcialmente en uno de los seis elementos que integran el ejercicio. Esto es casi Sobresaliente.


En consecuencia, podemos otorgarle un Distinguido y decir que “Progresa Adecuadamente”.

Time to say goodbye again . This time we want to close this issue of SHARE with what we consider two precious gifts, one of them is a note  from a teacher Marina and I admire, Ms Ana Perez Moreno and the other a quotation sent by our fairy godmother, Elida Messina.

In thanking both of them for their words, we would like to thank all of you for being always there.


Dear Omar and Marina,

I'd like to express my deep gratitude for the valuable contribution SHARE makes to our professional world. Like so many, I find myself, week after week, looking forward to the next issue, which I avidly devour.

Thank you once again. I wish you both a very successful year, lots of candles lighting up your paths.

Best regards

Ana Pérez Moreno



Partners In Joy

With instinctive grace and natural ease the affection between them quietly spins, through sun-lit days and shining seasons and year after year of tender smiles.

Whether sisters or cousins or dearest friends, their lifetimes are joined by the spirit they share; the gentle fusion of simple love.

- Robert Sexton sent by ELIDA





Omar and Marina.
