CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER 2017

Even the smallest contribution counts! Please make a donation to keep iSLCollective strong in 2018.

We're a small team dedicated to helping you teach better. Hover over our photos to see who we are.

My name's Istvan Jaromi, and I am a backend developer. I code new features and fix bugs.

I am Szelina Szigeti, and I am a frontend developer for iSLCollective. That means I am working on how things look on the site.

I am Benedek Princz, co-founder of iSLCollective and Chief Technical Officer (CTO) who manages our developer team.

I am Peter Laszlo, co-founder of iSLCollective and head of product development. I am in charge of coming up with new feature ideas, designing them and overseeing their production, like our new video lessons platform.

I am Adam Laszlo, also a co-founder of iSLCollective. I am the CFO, and my main job is to manage our legal, financial and human resources matters.

My name's Zsuzsa Kiss. I am your helpdesk assistant. If you have any questions or problems, you can reach me at info [at] islcollective [dot] com, and I'll be glad to help.

I am Szabolcs Simonyi, backend developer. Just like Istvan, I code new features and do bug fixes.

Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Dear colleagues!

We hope that you found a lot of joy in using our materials in 2017! As it is the time of our traditional Christmas Fundraiser, we are asking you to consider becoming a Supporting Member on iSLCollective. Your help - no matter the amount - makes a huge difference!

We will use the incoming proceeds to maintain and continuously improve the site. The majority of our expenditure is comprised of staff salaries and internet bills:

Technology:
Maintenance, data backup, servers, bandwidth, development, search engine optimization. We serve between 100-150,000 teachers every day so we have to maintain a powerful and reliable back-end infrastructure.

People:
8 iSLCollective staff members make sure that every aspect of the technological and administrative side of the operations is covered professionally.


Finally, let me tell you what our team has accomplished in 2017:

1) We rewrote the code of the worksheet pages from scratch to make them load faster.

2) If you are printing a worksheet directly from iSLCollective, you may have noticed that we made the iSLCollective watermark smaller and placed it lower in the document so that it doesn't block out the contents of the worksheet.

3) We improved the Mypage menu to help you find your favorited resources and your own uploads/creationsmore easily.

4) We added a Next worksheet button on the worksheet page to help you comb through worksheets faster.

5) We added a voting module on each worksheet page that shows you what level that worksheet is most suitable for according to other colleagues.

6) We added new servers for the site to run smoothly even when the site is seeing 150 thousand visits per day.

7) We provided technical support for our users throughout the year.

8) And finally, we added a host of improvements to our video lessons section.

Donating is loving, so please show your love by making a donation - whatever you can afford - to keep iSLCollective alive and strong in 2018.

Bless up,

Peter Laszlo
iSLCollective Co-founder

P.S.
As a special thank you, we will remove all ads from the site for you during your Supporting Membership period.

    "Teaching English as a foreign language is my second job, and I highly appreciate being able to find on this excellent website quality materials and tailor-made worksheets so to meet my students' diverse needs. Preparing one-on-one lessons sometimes requires a lot of time, therefore I want to thank ISLCollective team and its members for sharing their work, knowledge and time and helping me with my tasks. As a regular ""taker"" of these great materials I've been more than happy to give ISLCollective some financial support. I encourage every user to become a supporting member so that ISLCollective can continue operating in the years to come. "

    "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."

    "Ich bin all den engagierten Menschen, die Unterrichtsmaterial auf die Seite hochladen, sehr dankbar und habe mich schon sehr oft von den Arbeitsblättern inspirieren lassen. Ich sehe regelmäßig nach, ob ich eine gute Idee für Übungen oder Spiele finde. Herzlichen Dank an alle an dieser Stelle!"

    "Hello, I have been a user of iSLCollective for a couple of years. I often find useful worksheets for my students. For me it is a huge help to be a member of iSLCollective and I think it is important to support Peter Laszlo and his colleagues, because it takes them a lot of work to operate the site and everybody can use this amazing resource for free. Thank you so much!!! ;-))"

    "J'ai choisi de soutenir ce site parce qu'il est une ressource d'idées formidable et un réservoir de documents inépuisable. Merci."
  • "ISL is a very interesting site. One way to share and discover what other people use. I am an English teacher in France and this really helped me find a way to avoid the traditional books we are supposed to follow in our lessons. I can find worksheets created by other teachers that are really useful, handy at the last minute and easy to transform and adapt to a specific audience. Thanks to ISL nayogana"
  • "iSLCollective is very helpful and easy to use. I'm so happy that I found it and I wouldn't replace it with any other similar site! My students have fun and learn easily through the worksheets! I will be iSLCollective's sponsor until I stop teaching! I recommend you do the same.. :)"
  • "Some months ago I taught a Thai woman to learn German.in addition to our work-book , I always was in need of additional work sheets for various subjects . so islcollective was a great help . the homepage is very well structured and I could find the wanted sheets mostly in a rather short time. Therefore I thought it would be fair, to give a smalll contribution . kind regards b"
  • "As a teacher, I have felt sooo Supported by using ISLCollective material in my English lessons, that I decided to become a supporting member. Let' s contribute so that we can continue helping each other!!"
  • "I found that the materials at iSLCOLLECTIVE are not only useful, but by following the people who design them, I begin to see how they plan a lesson. Often I look up materials by people in the same country that I teach in, to get an idea of how other colleagues are approaching a grammar or language function issue."

Our plans for 2018


We have big plans for 2018. We would like to further develop our new video lesson platform. For example, we'd like to improve class work with video lessons. We would like to replace paper answer sheets and enable you to let your students submit their answers via their mobile phone or tablet while you are showing them the video lesson on the big screen.

We also want to enable you to organize competitions between them, even pairing them up virtually, to motivate them even better.

Besides, we are planning to let you create virtual classes on iSLCollective and add your students to your class, so you can assign them video homework and check if they have done it, and how well they did in a particular video lesson.

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 or +36 30 638 7470.



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 the invoice after my payment made out in the name of my school/company. Where can I give you the invoice details?


1. In case of Paypal payments

As a default, you will be issued an invoice using the name and address you provided in your PayPal account. If you would like us to make out the invoice to a different name and address, you can request that on the next page before you get to Paypa's page to finish the payment.

2. In case of debit/credit card payments

As a default, you will be issued an invoice using the name and address you provide on our payment form (Step 1 of payment: "Confirming your order").
