LET'S BE ALLIES AND WE CAN RIDE IT OUT TOGETHER!

DONATE THE PRICE OF A COFFEE AND YOU CAN BE PART OF THIS AMAZING COLLECTIVE ENDEAVOUR, TOO!

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



GOSH, WHAT A DIFFICULT PROJECT THIS IS!

Peter Laszlo


Actually, the most difficult project of my life. Two years of hard work so far! Season after season it seemed like we were just months from the launch, yet again and again we bumped into unexpected problems - technical and other -, which kept setting us back and tested our patience and budget big time. But at last we're doing - big sigh! - the final testing of our upcoming new site and preparing for public launch (see sneak peeks below).


Due to the long delays, however, our finances suffered awfully. More than ever we depend on your generous support of our mission: to offer a treasure trove of free language teaching resources for all situations: paper worksheets in class, online worksheets for remote work and interactive video quizzes. This fundraiser is super important: we need to shore up our finances urgently! 


If the price of a coffee is not too much for you, we'd be grateful if you would show us that you think our work is worthy. In return, we promise you will soon see - instead of a patched up, cranky old site - a modern and beautiful one that is going to serve you guys for the next decade.


Bless up,

Peter Laszlo, co-founder


P.S. 

If you cannot afford the price of a coffee right now, don't feel bad. You can also be part of this amazing global collective by contributing a worksheet you made or creating a video quiz!

    iSLCOLLECTIVE is a wonderful site, which has provided me with a lot of support over the past few years. It would be impossible for me to enrich my lessons in such a positive way without this source. I will no doubt continue to be a sponsor and remain forever thankful to all those who contribute and for all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes!

    "ISL est un site hyper intéressant lorsqu’on enseigne les langues étrangères. C'est une mine d'or avec des documents divers et variés préparés par des collègues du monde entier. Je sponsorise parce ce que j'utilise les documents tels quels ou en les modifiant.Il est normal ""d'aider un service."

    "iSLCOLLECTIVE is my first reflex when I'm looking for a fun worksheet to teach a new aspect of English. Whether it's for kids or adults, a well thought out worksheet is a great way to get a new rule across, and it's fun! I'm hopeless at designing worksheets and so my contribution is by donating and I'm proud to feel a part of such a great website."

    "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!!! ;-))"

    "I became an iSLCollective sponsor because I've found the site to be the 'go-to place' whenever I need exercises or inspiration for my classes. It has NEVER failed me!"
  • "I think it's important to support and thank iSLCollective and all the teachers who share their works. I can find nice, fun, creative and really interesting worksheets for my students. It is a time-saving website. I'm ready to supprt again. Giving money is an easy way. Thanks again! PK"
  • "iSLCollective has helped me quite often with my lessons through easy and free access to other teachers' beautiful work. So I became a sponsor in order to give something back and to ensure this generous and fabulous site will continue to exist for teachers!"

The new website has the same uploading and downloading system, but with a sleak new design and some new functions (PDF download, new search functions, e.g. author search). Importantly, the worksheets have been re-categorized and combed through for quality, which we hope will make it easier to find what you need. 



New front page: All three resources types (worksheets, powerpoints, video quizzes) featured



Search results page: You can easily clear any filter individually or all filters



Search filter panel: new categorization (Language goals, pedagogical goals) and ew options (e.g., author search)



New worksheet page



Upload page: You start by selecting a file, then you get to the tagging form




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.

Dear peter, thank you for making this website and provide so many materials for teaching English! I really wish I can drop five bucks or even more because this website is worth every penny spent but sadly I am Indonesian and it's really expensive in IDR:( I hope I can afford to donate here anytime soon!

Thanks for your appreciative message. Obviously too difficult for you to donate right now, but that's OK. Why not donate one of your own creations- that's just as valuable.

Hi there! Yesterday (01/05/2022) I donated 15 € for the first time, but my current membership history hasn`t been changed to a "Supporting member". I`m just wondering if there is a mistake... The thing is that I`d like to change the amount of my future monthly donations, but I can`t find the way how to do it if my membership history is " you haven`t been a Supporting Member yet". Could you please help? . Thanks in advance.
