Dear All,

Thanks to all our sponsors who helped us collect 4900 EUR until the fundraiser deadline, virtually all of our 5000 EUR goal this summer! :)

This will allow us to continue providing basic support of the site in 2014 and pay the infrastructure bills.

As you know, we reduced staff hours and spending on the development of new features, but hopefully we will still be able to come out with some small new releases every now and then. Next up is reworking the Login and Registration. We want to introduce Facebook Connect to simplify logging in and using the site for first time or casual users. Besides, we're also planning to develop a new "Forgot Password" mechanism to replace the current one, which a lot of users are having issues with.

If you've missed this Fundraiser, you will be able to donate all year round by clicking on the SUPPORT ISL menu. Any further contributions are very much welcome, since they will help us formulate a reserve for unforeseeable expenses, while the rest will be put towards developing new features, e.g. hosting new material formats.

Thank you again, and have a great summer!

Bless up,
Peter

Fellow teachers,

Re: Posts #124 to #131

We all know how painful it can be when we have our own use of English picked on - whether we are native English speakers or not.

As a matter of courtesy, may I suggest that if you have to comment on other people's use of English or, in fact, their ability to communicate in English at all, please consider contacting them via their wall and leaving a private message. Far less painful and far less embarrassing.

I am a native English speaker, but I know I make some stupid mistakes sometimes - we all do. Remember, to err is human ...

I apologise to the forum controllers that this entry has no relevance to fundraising and, in future, I will ensure I post my entries on the appropriate sections.

Well spoken Phillip, i agree!
I do think as well that ISL needs to find a corporate sponsor if they want to keep staff for the running of the site.
I do think its a great site though

    When you are delievering your lesson in a class make sure that every student is showing interest in the lesson. Now the question is how to create this interest.These are some of the tips you can use to develope the interest of your students in your lesson.

    1.Before starting your lesson ask the students some questions relating to your topic,this will develope some interest in the students.
    2.The questioning before and during the lesson will make your students more attentive in the class.
    3.Encourage the students even when they are not answering the questions correctly just encourage them so that next time they will come prepared for the lesson before.
    4.During the lesson ask them what have they learned and understood and also ask them to tell what will happen next if you are reading a story.
    5.At the end of the lesson revise the whole lesson and ask the main points and the outcome of the lesson from the students to know their understanding.
    6.Everyday before starting your lesson make a little revision of the previous delivered lesson by asking different questions,this will make them attentive at the start of the lesson.
