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,

Hi Peter,
Hope you got answers from Italy - if not, ............I'd be right, then ??? Argg.
If you were to come to Northern France- Normandy - ( nor far from Cherbourg... just by the English Channel )( not English, to our view, He!He! ),
you'd get a tiny bedroom in a small house - for free - ;-)))
No paying fees - just like your site! ;-)))
( ain't she a nuisance ?!!)
Enjoy your holiday, & have some rest - when trying, people should be able to find worksheets, do not worry!!
I know my messages can be unpleasant - but...I always speak my mind. Some say I shouldn't - I sometimes believe them..........But not for long!
:-) :-)
Sylvie ;-) If someone were to correct my English, I'd find it .............soooooooooo funny!!! ( not joking - this time..!!!) I loved the witty answers I've read not long ago : funny, but never rude. My cuppa..........

Dear Lúcia, try broadening your search from indefinite articles to articles to get more results. We've recently added a bunch of new grammar categories, among them many sub-categories (e.g. indefinite articles happens to be a recently added sub category), and we're still waiting for the authors to retag their works. Slowly, as more and more authors add new tags to their existing worksheets, the more useable the search is going to become.

Dear Peter,

for much time I've been getting much material for my classes and even for myself.
Unfortuunately I couldn't contribute with this page I'm so interested.

Peter, I'm in trouble because I can't get printables that I could once. What should I do?
For instance, I need a page for elementary students about indefinite articles. How should I do?

I really need your answer.

Dear Marg,
I agree with you BUT after reading such a rude comment (post # 127) I wanted to show this member that he/she ALSO makes mistakes. As you said, to err is human.

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.
