I don't think it's a very constructive comment mega1!..... It's true, it's free, but as a teacher I think that people ought to be told and I'm sure they would appreciate it.
I don't think EllDix was criticising the hard and great work people have done but just pointed out that if we use the material for lesson, we just need to be aware that there can be some errors. It can happen to anyone. We all learn every day from our mistakes.
Anyway, think this site is Great for teachers like me who are useless at creating colourful worksheet via computer, and give LOTS of idea.
Well done to the person who thought of it, and thank you to all.

I think mistakes should be pointed out to the authors, but not publically. It's so much nicer to send a private message to that person as I'm sure he/she would be only too pleased to correct his/her worksheet and will have learnt something in the process. We are never too old or too experienced to learn.

reply to Zizz's post #15We all make mistakes and can learn from them, and those who critize...well guess what they tend to be those who always make mistakes. I appreciate when someone tells me if there is a mistake on one of my ws but in a private way via a mail.
We all do our best we are not perfect and sometimes so carried away by the passion of our work that....we make mistakes...but nevermind this website is such a fantastic idea for all of us.
Well done to all of us....our job is our passion!!! have a good week all take care

reply to Zizz's post #4Thank you so much Zizz! You're right, Im NOT criticising at all; I love iSL and am very very grateful to all those who upload their lovely work for free, especially since I, like you, am useless in that area.
I sincerely hope I haven't offend anyone by my comment but it has come to my attention on quite a few occasions that some w.s contain serious errors which if spotted by a colleague, especially a superior or worse a parent could lead to embarassment.

I apologise to anyone who may have misunderstood my intentions and thought I was being ungrateful and offensive. That was exactly what I had hoped to avoid when I wrote on the forum asking other users if they thought it would be indiscreet. Thanks to all those who were understanding and a big, big thanks to ALL those who submit their work, even the ones with errors :-) Love&Peace Elle

reply to ElleDix's post #17Just wishing to thank everyone on here, agree that there are worksheets with errors, but it's up to us as teachers to check the work we get from anywhere, I have even found mistakes in Oxford and Cambridge books, and at least with the WS's uploaded here they're all on the whole editable!
