Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Peter Laszlo

iSLCollective will soon get a brand new website. Almost two years in the making, we are months away from switching to the new site. The work is suspended now for lack of funds, but as soon we collect the missing funds, we will resume work and roll out the new site as soon as possible.

We hope you will like the sneak peeks below.

The new site has an improved search engine with completely new categorizations:


You will be able to search for your favorite authors in the search filter panel:


You can easily browse among your favorite authors' uploads on their portfolio page:


You will be able to download worksheets in PDF format, as well, along with the Microsoft DOC file.

Bless up,
Peter Laszlo, iSLCollective co-founder

    ISLCollective has been one of the best resources over the years for materials for my classroom and I tell everyone I meet about it as a resource for them when they're looking for something new for their classrooms. I am more than happy to be a sponsor of ISLCollective because it provides quality classroom materials from people all over the world. I hope that others will see the value as well and also support such a great site. Thank you, dear authors and ISLCollective, for all your help!

    "Being a member of ISLCollective for the last few years has helped me professionally. Now, I do not worry about not having the right material for my classes, because I know if I don't have time to create it myself, I'll find it at ISLCollective. There are fantastic contributors, whose work is really motivating and useful. I have tried other sites, but I always come back to this one. It's here that I usually find what I need for my students. That's why I have been supporting the site since the beginning both with money and by uploading my own worksheets. I do hope Peter and his team will be able to keep it working with our support and for our sake."

    "I sponsor iSLCollective because I'm teaching one of the hundreds of new refugee classes in Germany - and the page was an appreciated help in preparing for the lessons."
  • berensheide berensheide
    "I became an iSL sponsor a few years ago because I teach English from home to individuals who are not interested in learning from a textbook. I found the materials on the website very useful for my one to one teaching. Many of the worksheets can be adapted to suit my particular circumstances. I am amazed at other teachers ingenuity and their generosity at posting their worksheets. I only wish I could be as creative! Many thanks to all the contributors."
  • DaqingDevil DaqingDevil
    "iSLCollective is an amazing site! There are literally thousands of worksheets DONATED by teachers who simply want to share. At first I just used to grab and run. Then, I started to think about the site's appeal for help so that they could continue. So, I donated, and I will donate again, even though I no longer use the site as often as I did. The alternative? Well, no funds, no site. Tragically simple. All you teachers out there can surely find 5-10 Euros to donate. Work out how much time and effort you have saved on preparing a lesson after using the ISLCollective site. How much did you earn teaching that lesson? Simple maths. Boldog Karásony! Merry Christmas! John L"
  • "Firstly, Merry Christmas! I have run an English Institute in Cyprus for many years! I was introduced to iSLCOLLECTIVE about 4 years ago and use it constantly. Sometimes I'm looking for a quick extension for class, a game or a worksheet for homework. I never fail to find just what I'm looking for in just a couple of minutes. A huge timesaver! So if you are like me, downloading and too lazy to create your own material, the least you can do is send the team a donation. Be generous; it's Christmas!!"
  • "Hi colleagues from everywhere! I'd like to share my ISLCOLLECTIVE experience with you and encourage you to become a sponsor even if for a very modest participation. Operating a website like ISLCOLLECTIVE doesn't come free and I'm sure it would mean a real loss for us all if we couldn't rely any longer on the so great quantity of teaching ressources available on this site. That's why I decided to become a sponsor some time ago, first as a testimony of my gratefulness and secondly to support the great job ISLCOLLECTIVE website operating members are doing for us, teachers from so many countrie . Because sharing is more enriching than just taking don't hesitate to join in. Cheers !"
  • "I have benefited so very much from the iSLCollective over the past several years! Numerous times, when I wanted a new approach to some concept or lesson, I turned to iSLCollective and was able find something that I could either use 'as is' or that I could tailor to fit my needs - or sometimes I just saw someone else's creative idea and it helped me to imagine something of my own. There are some very creative and talented contributors and I like that I could also share some of my ideas for others to use. Please help support this work! Sean"
  • "A good community only works if everyone puts in a little share. Hey, this is actually an awesome project! On the one hand, it's just incredible to find so many useful ressources in one spot, and be able to get them. For free. On the other hand, we kind of get used to this, right? Isn't everything in the web for free, sort of? Wikipedia, facebook, youTube, tons of news sites and other sites? No, it isn't. We just tend to forget that. All these sites put in a tremendous amount of work. Some have found other ways to get money, by monetizing your data for example. Or by having people pay to have their content featured. So, it's advertising, just hidden. Others just have a huge network of people willing to work. For free. And so, because nobody is watching us, we start thinking that it is okay to just download and use that work other people have done. For free. But it isn't. Giving back should be a normal thing. And giving back can have multiple forms. You could ask yourself: i have used this platform. It has helped me. How can i help back? Sometimes, this might mean uploading a paper you have created. Sometimes, it might be dropping a line just to say thank you. Sometimes, it is to just donate what you can afford or think is fair. Because, evidently, all this costs money. There is no such thing as free content. Somebody always pays for it. And it is good to contribute to keep it alive and interest-free. Because otherwise, it will disappear. Or be paid for by people who have something to sell. So, yes, do donate. Because it means being a good person. "

    "iSLCollective offers a wide range of teacher worksheets and a very useful selection interface. There are resources to match most topics and situations at a variety of levels. The worksheet contributors have unique and interesting styles and experience. We are able to utilize iSLCollective materials in the teaching of elementary and intermediate classes of immigrants to Australia."




The new website has the same uploading and downloading system, but with a sleak new design and some new functions (new Online worksheet filler, PDF download, new search functions, e.g. author search). Impőortantly, the worksheets have been re-categorized, which we hope will make them easier to find when you search. 




FAQ


Q: How does paying work?

You can choose to select a monthly amount to pay every month or you can make a one-time payment. We are happiest for recurring payments, which means you authorize us to automatically charge your Paypal account or bank card every month - until you cancel it. So if you're thinking about whether to pay 15 euros once, or 3-5 euros every month, please choose a smaller, but monthly amount. Of course, we are immensely grateful for one-time payments, as well!

In either case, technically you pay in your national currency, and our bank will exchange it. The currencies indicated in the payment box are there to give you a better idea of how much you are going to pay.

We are glad to answer any questions at info [at] islcollective [dot] com.




Q: I am considering paying a small amount every month. How does this work?


Paying every month (monthly recurring payment)

If you select "PAY MONTHLY" in the pay box above, it means that you are going to make a payment every month, and with your authorization this amount will be debited (=charged) by iSLCollective automatically on the monthly anniversary of the first payment, until of course, you stop your payments.

You can easily stop your automatic monthly payments by going to the History/support sub menu in your MyPage (click on your avatar in the top right corner). There you will find a link that takes you directly to the page on PayPal.com where you can stop the payments. In case of CCBill (our bank card payment processor), you just have to reply to the payment confirmation email they have sent you, and they will cancel your recurring payment within a few hours.

Recurring payment works both with PayPal and your bank card. Your account will be upgraded to "iSLCollectve Sponsor" right after successful payment.



Q: I'd like to pay 15 dollars, but only once. Can I do that, too?


Paying just once 

Sure. If you select "PAY ONCE" in the pay box above, you will be charged your selected amount only once. Your account will be upgraded to "iSLCollective Sponsor" immediately after successful payment.




Q: What payment methods can I choose from?


1. PayPal

In case of using Paypal, the actual payment takes place on PayPal's secure site. If you create a PayPal account, in most countries you can also pay with your debit or credit card.

Experiencing problems when trying with PayPal? Contact us at info [at] islcollective [dot] com, or try the next option.

2. Bank Card

You can also pay securely with your debit or credit card on CCbill.com, the site of our international payment gateway partner. We have chosen CCBill because it is well-known and trustworthy provider for processing electronic payments.

Experiencing problems when trying to donate with your bank card? You can try using your bank card with PayPal, too. For many people it works, as well. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at info [at] islcollective [dot] com.




Q: I need an invoice after my donation. How can I get one?


Your payment is a donation. According to the laws of Hungary, where iSLCollective Ltd. is based, invoices are not issued after donations.

I'm from Iran, how can I donate?

I think with all the respect to whom it corresponds none of the options offered to donate money is suitable for many people like me. In which my currency is not dollars, because it means a very considerable amount of money to offer for a download. I think it would be a good idea to give the chance to people donate in smaller amounts for intance I wish I could donate today without being discounted every single month. In that way many people would dare to donate for the extraordinary help you are giving every single teacher of English in the world. I think you'll get more incomes because people know they can donate every time they can and what they want or can, well you can continue offering the other ways maybe giving something extra that would make people get hooked or more likely to do so. This is just a humble opinion.
