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.

    "iSLCollective provides incredible resources for anyone working with EAL/EFL learners. The quality of the products on offer is second to none and, as an EAL teacher, I always use their invaluable services whenever I need to find that special worksheet or other resource that I can't seem to find elsewhere. Become a sponsor now and you won't regret it!"
  • MGregorio MGregorio
    "iSLCollective has helped me so much to plan my lessons! I used to spend too much time preparing my lessons. With iSL I can benefit from other people's work. I also try to create my own worksheets whenever I have time and upload as a form of gratitude. I always recommend this website to people who, like me, have more than one job and don't have enough time during the week. That is why I decided to sponsor iSLCollective as it has made my teaching life much easier. :) THANK YOU!"
  • danbar danbar
    Why have I become a sponsor? Because you deserve it! You offer so many resources for teachers that I feel obliged to support you. Thanks and keep going!

    "Sehr gute Arbeitsblätter, die nach Themen und Niveaus geordnet sind. Ich brauche sie oft für meinen Deutschunterricht."
  • escritora escritora
    "I am an English teacher who was born in Brazil and lives in Germany. In ISLCollective I found a platform where I can download exercises in all three of these languages. That is the reason why I support ISLCollective. Of course, I could download the exercises without paying anything for it, but how long would they be able to offer this service if no one would be paying anything. I'd like to continue to use these exercises and powerpoints and that will only be possible if some of us spend some money. They do a great job - let them continue doing it for us, teachers."
  • "I am sponsoring iSL as I've been using the site for at least 5 years...from kids to adults...and every time it has been a life saver. Easy to use, easy to nav, and just great in every way. Keep up the amazing work."
  • "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!!"
  • "ISLCollective is my primary resource for preparing my lessons. There are so many fantastic teachers and I learn so much from them! I think it helps me be a better teacher. I chose to be a Sponsor because I think it is the best site world-wide. I want to see the site florish and grow. I would recommend that everyone become a supporting member, to help protect our site and to give the wonderful founder and his crew the finances to follow their dream. The site helps us all so much. Please consider it... these guys deserve our help ! :) "
  • "Just think: most of you are teachers or people who get a benefit from ISL Collective. You would probably ask your students the same thing: do the right thing! And we will be doing the right thing if we recognise the effort of those who make available this amazing collection of activities. they save us time and work. Isn't that worth anything? Would you work for free? Your help makes a whole lotta difference! Thanks!!"
  • "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!
