Tomorrow we will have another opportunity to celebrate Children´s Day again . What can be say about childrento parents who devote and woud gladly give their lives for their own children ? What can we say about children to teachers who devote their lives to other people´s children and love them, and look after them and try to teach them well and feel those "chicos" are their own ?

As a tribute to Children´s Day we would  like to invite all our SHARERS to pray for our children and all the children in the world ( each one of you will know that that means to you or in what way you want to do it) and we  would like to share with you this poem by Ina Hughs  : 

We pray for children
who put chocolate fingers everywhere
who like to be tickled,
who stomp in puddles and ruin their new pants,
who sneak candies before supper,
who erase hole in copybooks,
who can never find shoes.
And we pray for children
who stare at photographers from behind barbed wire,
who can´t bound down the street in a new pair of sneakers,
who never "counted potatoes",
who are born in places we would never be caught dead,
who never go to the circus,
who live in an X-rated world
We pray for children
who bring us sticky kisses,
who sleep with the dog and bury goldfish,
who hug us in a hurry and forget their lunch money,
who cover themselves in Band-Aids  ans sig off key,
who squeeze toothpaste all over the sink,
who slurp their soup.
And we pray for children
who never get dessert,
who have no safe blanket to drag around behind,
who watch their parents watch them die,
who can´t find any bread to steal,
who don´t have rooms to clean up,
whose pictures aren´t on anybody´s dresser,
whose monsters are real
We pray for children
who spend all their weekly allowance before Tuesday,
who throw tantrums in the grocery store and pick at heir food,
who like ghost stories,
who shove their dirty clothes under the bed,
who get visits from the tooth fairy,
who don´t like to be hugged and kissed before classmates,
who squirm in church and scream in the phone,
whose tears we sometimes laugh at and whose smiles can make us cry.
And we pray for children
whose nightmares come in the daytime,
who will eat anything,
who have never seen a dentist,
who aren´t spoiled by anybody,
who go to bed hungry and cry themselves to sleep,
who live and move but have no being.
We pray for children who want to be carried and for those who must.
For those we never give up on and for those who don´t get a seciond chance.
For those who smother ... and for those who will grab the hand
of anybody kind enough to offer it.


 A very dear and active SHARER, Cristina Araujo writes to us :

 “Dear Omar and Marina,

On Friend´s Day a loved one sent me this text which I´d like to share with you and all the SHARERS. I hope you like it. Besides it may be used as a text to think over and have some piece of conversation with our students.

Best Regards
Cristina Araujo

The Most Beautiful Heart

One day a young man was standing in the middle of the town proclaiming that he had the most beautiful heart in the whole valley.
A large crowd gathered and they all admired his heart for it was perfect.
There was not a mark or a flaw in it. Yes, they all agreed it truly was
the most beautiful heart they had ever seen. The young man was very proud and boasted more loudly about his beautiful heart.

Suddenly, an old man appeared at the front of the crowd and said "Why
your heart is not nearly as beautiful as mine." The crowd and the young man looked at the old man's heart. It was beating strongly, but full of
scars, it had places where pieces had been removed and other pieces put in, but they didn't fit quite right and there were several jagged edges. In fact, in some places there were deep gouges where whole pieces were missing.

The people stared - how can he say his heart is more beautiful, they
The young man looked at the old man's heart and saw its state and
laughed.   "You must be joking," he said. "Compare your heart with mine,
mine is perfect and yours is a mess of scars and tears."

"Yes," said the old man, "Yours is perfect looking but I would never trade
with you. You see, every scar represents a person to whom I have given my love - I tear out a piece of my heart and give it to them,  and often
they give me a piece of their heart which fits into the empty place in my
heart, but because the pieces aren't exact, I have some rough edges, which I cherish, because they remind me of the love we shared.

Sometimes I have given pieces of my heart away, and the other person
hasn't returned a piece of his heart to me. These are the empty gouges - giving love is taking a chance. Although these gouges are painful, they stay open, reminding me of the love I have for these people too, and I hope someday they may return and fill the space I have waiting. So now do you see what true beauty is?"

The young man stood silently with tears running down his cheeks. He
walked up to the old man, reached into his perfect young and beautiful heart, and ripped a piece out. He offered it to the old man with trembling hands.
The old man took his offering, placed it in his heart and then took a piece
from his old scarred heart and placed it in the wound in the young man's
heart. It fit, but not perfectly, as there were some jagged edges.

The young man looked at his heart, not perfect anymore but more beautiful than ever, since love from the old man's heart flowed into his.

They embraced and walked away side by side.”

Thank you Cristina for your wonderful contribution . It takes a beautiful heart like yours to know the true value of SHARING. Let´s keep in touch !

Our dear friend and SHARER, Nicolas Ridley, editor of ETp , English Teaching professional, is back with us :

Dear Omar

My apologies. I intended to SHARE bits and pieces from ENGLISH TEACHING professional on a much less sporadic basis than this ! But I've been traveling - a few days in Jerusalem at the ETAI conference followed by a visit to St Catherine's Monastery in Sinai (with my daughter, Catherine) - and the follow up and backlog has overwhelmed me. However ...

A regular contributor to ENGLISH TEACHING professional is Luke Prodromou. He has written some excellent articles for us and I think I'm right in saying we have something else from him coming very soon. In July 1999 he wrote an article called "How to be a boring teacher". The sub headings give you an idea of the main points he made:

- Let students do nothing
- Teach the book
- Be right all the time
- Assume students know nothing
- Sit still
- Be predictable
- Speak in a monotone
- Make sure your students are idle
- Lose your students
- Keep talking

As an article it's great fun but it makes some very serious points. At the
end of the article Luke writes:
"If you follow the few words of advice given in this short course on BTM you can guarantee the Optimum Level of Boredom (OLB) in your classroom. You are guaranteed to turn your students against you and against the school and against learning of every kind."

When I read these words I thought back to my own inglorious teaching career and thought "Oh dear - I wonder how I rated on the OLB scale?". Can anyone who hasn't read the article guess what BTM is by the way.

With best wishes from a sunny London (rain on its way I'm sure)


Thank you for SHARING Nicolas ! Haven´t you subscribed to ETp, yet ?

Our very dear SHARER Bethina Viale sends us this story with this jocular warning “If you don't like puns, trash it !” We do and we didn´t . Instead we are SHARING it with all of you :

A guy goes into a bar. He's sitting on the stool, enjoying his drink when he hears, "You look great!" He looks around - there's nobody near him. He hears the voice again, "No really, you look terrific."
The guy looks around again. Nobody. He hears, "Is that a new shirt or something? Because you are absolutely glowing!"  He then realizes that
the voice is coming from a dish of nuts on the bar.

"Hey," the guy calls to the bartender, "What's with the nuts?"
"Oh," the bartender answers, "They're complimentary."

 A very dear friend Lawrie Olmedo (a.k.a. The blonde kangaroo) formerly with the CCPA in Asunción, Paraguay and noe back home in Australia sends us this most appropriate piece of information . Now will know what happens to us in Argentina at the end of every month ! His source was Paros´s A Word With You, a most helpful list for the teacher of English

“The science of economics begins in the home from oikos,  “house”+     nomos, ”managing.” Household management is never easy. It is either feast or famine(1732), periods of plenty offset by periods of want. ”spend less and be more frugal. “Pulling in your belt is the natural outcome of having lost weight due to not having enough to eat. You are going to have to learn how to make both ends meet(latter half of 17th), “live within your means and stay in the black financially.” The longer version was originally “ to make the two ends of the year meet, ”i.e., “to live within your means from January to December.”

You don’t need much to keep body and soul together(mid 18thc.), to survive economically and make enough to stay alive, there being a separation of body and soul at time of death. So just keep the wolf from the door. He’s been a devouring force since the mid15th century. The best of some of us can do, however, is simply eke out an existence from the Anglo Saxon ecan “to augment or “increase”. It also made for an eke-name , then an neke-name and finally a nickname. So just call me “Stingy” 


Our dear SHARERS, Vivian Morghem and Mabel Gallo, Head and Academic Consultant of ICANA respectively, sends us details about their traditional

Annual Seminar.

Our dear friend ans SHARER from Leeds, UK, Geoff Waywell writes to us :

Dear Omar and Marina,
Thanks for inserting information about our software in this week's issue of SHARE. I hope subscribers find it of some interest.
Rather than simply contact the University for further information at this stage, I would, as author, be very happy to answer queries sent directly to me at
I am particularly interested to hear from those keen on collaborating on setting up intensive courses based on the program and /or distribution of the same in Argentina and perhaps other countries in South America.
In the meantime, if it is not too long, I enclose an attachment with more detail, perhaps for your next edition... You did ask !
Kind regards,

Leeds collaboration sees successful launch of specialized English language software for finance and business

The shortfall of dedicated English language courses for finance has been addressed by the launch of an innovative software package,  Advanced English for Finance & Business (AEFB) .

The software is a product of AEO Ltd and is now being marketed in partnership with University of Leeds Innovations...

Advanced English for Finance & Business (AEFB) is tailor-made for international executives and students in Higher Education. It covers:

·      Introduction to finance
·      Partnerships and companies
·      Banking principles and operations
·      The stock market
·      Balance sheet analysis

Delivered on CDRom, the software takes the user through to the highest level of fluency in this specialized field, immersing the user in the language, principles and culture of finance and business.  

AEFB has been carefully designed as a total learning environment. Its approach ensures learning experience is enhanced by integrating the sub-skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking throughout. It provides a  conceptual and linguistic framework with empirical underpinnings - context for each topic is provided through a video storyline which introduces and develops business principles and language from chapter to chapter. 

Written and oral exercises continuously reinforce the user's understanding, and record and playback facilities allow the user to model pronunciation by hearing their own voice reproducing the speech of native English speakers. A pop-up technical glossary, with English definitions and foreign translations, allows the user to understand and digest material at their own pace.

Moreover, automatic hotlinks to dedicated world wide web sites provide continuous updating of content, recommended further reading material and access to additional relevant text and audio clips, such as links to BBC world service programmes. The programme can be used autonomously as stand-alone material or integrated into existing courses. 

The course offers 40+ hours of learning material and is compatible with Windows 95/98 and NT.
