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.

Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Dear colleagues!

We like to be independent - we don't take government or corporate subsidies. This is why donations really matter. We are asking you now to make a small donation, like the price of a coffee - or 3 dollars. Your help - no matter the amount - makes a huge difference!

As every year, we will use the incoming proceeds to maintain and continuously improve the site. And we will do so with stunning efficiency that is comparable to that of Wikipedia. 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:
7 iSLCollective staff members and various outside service providers make sure that every aspect of the technological and administrative side of the operations is covered professionally.

Donating is loving, so please show your love by making a donation - whatever you can afford - to keep iSLCollective alive and strong in 2019.

Bless up,

Peter Laszlo
iSLCollective Co-founder

P.S.
As a special thank you, we will remove all ads from the site for one year following your donation.

    "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!!! ;-))"

    "Do you ever find yourself stuck while planning lessons, knowing there must be some good idea or worksheet or plan, but you are so tired you can't think of anything? This is where iSLCollective comes in. You can search by grammar point, vocabulary, material type, level and type of student. You can download worksheets and adjust them to fit your lessons. You can leave the materials for substitutes to use. iSLCollective helped me keep my sanity while teaching on numerous occasions! It is a free site, but takes donations. It is worth any donation you can make! I will continue to use the iSLCollective to support my teaching, and I hope you will consider joining us as a sponsor, too!"

    "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!"
  • imikra imikra
    "Every time I have to prepare for classes, I take a look at iSLCollective. Becoming a sponsor for me was not about having extra tools, it was a way of saying THANK YOU for all the worsheets and activities I have downloaded!"
  • "iSL is a great way for teachers to help each other by sharing their resources, but without the hard cash to support the website that resource will be lost. As a private tutor I really appreciate having these worksheets available and have been happy to contribute towards the maintenance costs."
  • "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."
  • "ISLCOLLECTIVE means that I can find excellent quality resources, made by teachers, for all levels and ages, and so well organized I can find great worksheets even when I am in a hurry. The website is very easy to browse and user-friendly, and has so much to offer. It is my first stop whenever I need a new resource. I like the fact that we can look for the material produced by a particular teacher too. I felt it my duty to reciprocate something, and I hope many will contribute, so that the authors can keep up their amazing work, for the benefit of the whole community. Very gratefully, from Christine, from France"
  • "Hello, I'm an English teacher in Spain. I would like to thank you all the teachers that give us material to use in our classes. We all know how much work there is behind it . Let' s suppport them!"

Our accomplishments in 2018


1) We launched a new Teaching jobs platform as part of our service for you.

2) We rewrote the code of the Worksheet download pages so now they load much faster. Have you noticed?

3) We tweaked the search results generation logic a bit on worksheet pages. Formerly, you had to select an item from the search filter, then you had to click on the magnifier icon to generate results. You no longer have to click on the magnifier icon, as the results will be generated instantly after you select an item from a search filter.

4) We introduced a Fix for Broken Videos: Sometimes videos are removed from Youtube, either by Youtube itself - on copyright grounds - or by the uploader. Then the video will become “broken” (unavailable) on Youtube, and in turn, as a logical consequence, on iSLCollective, as well.

5) We made it possible to assign Video Quizzes as homework.

6) We added two new task types in video quizzes.

7) We refreshed the design of video quizzes.

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

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

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 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").

Hi I am happy to pay once but before I type confirmation, I saw the message on top e.g. "US20 for 30 days" and I am confused.
Does it mean even I would like to pay US20 once, you will charge US20 x 30days? Kindly clarify. Thank you.

Hello,
thank you for your website- I love it!
I would like to also donate some small amount but is it possible to get a "normal" bank account number where I can send money from my account without giving you my card number? I don't have a PayPal account so it would be easier for me just to send money on your account.
Thank you in advance!
