Every thursday at INdT Office in Recife, we have to speak and write only in English. "Uncle Jack", that is some kind of Human Resources Chief from Nokia - Dallas selects one of our phones and calls us wherever he is to check if we are really speaking in English. The only word Jack knows in portuguese is "Caipirinha". :) This idea was suggested by our colleague Elvis and seems it will be adopted in all other INdT sites (Manaus and Brasília). This photo will be in our next newsletter and shows, from left to right, Rodrigo Novo, Me, Elvis, Marcelo Eduardo, and Jarmo Jarvenpaa, that is Finnish Nokia Supervisor. Jarmo does not speak in portuguese too.
I think this is a great opportunity to practice and learn more of this language worldwide spoken. I am trying to take the maximmum advantage on it. Finally, sorry for any mistake in this post.
