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!

    "I think the activities uploaded to iSLCollective are wonderful. They're so diverse, so many of them, so good... I decided to become a Sponsor because I consider this website really useful. Since I haven't got either the time or the creativity to prepare such great activities, I wanted to contribute somehow to keep this page going. I encourage everybody to follow my example."

    "It is easy to get caught up in how busy we all are and just upload a few resources in return for using the brilliant resources others provide, but then I thought that if we all did this and nothing else? This fantastic website would disappear. So I decided to donate in recognition of the time people have invested and in appreciation of the time it has saved me."

    "Hallo zusammen, iSLCollective ist eine hervorragende Seite mit Material-Ideen für den Deutsch als Zweitsprache Bereich. Hier findet man sehr viel Material, dass man für den Einsteiger-Bereich und auch für fortgeschrittene Lerner sehr gut verwenden kann. Ich empfinde es als einen großen Vorteil, dass fast alle Materialien auch im Word-Format angeboten wird, so dass man es an seinen eigenen Unterricht anpassen kann oder evtl. vorhandene Fehler ausbessern kann. Bei einer derart großen Anzahl an Materialien kann schon mal ein Fehler unterlaufen."
  • "I became a member because I find the resources very good and helpful in the preparation of lessons. There are printables for all age groups and many novel ideas, which make them more interesting to learn, especially for the younger students. Also iSLCollective saves a lot of time in the preparation of lessons. So I think to become a supporting member is one of the best contributions I can make. All the best."
  • "iSLCollective is like a coursebook to me. But it's even better, because it's made by real teachers who know what works in class and what doesn't. And it gets bigger all the time. So if it helps me to be a good teacher and prepare nice and varied lessons - why not pay for it? Compared to books it's cheap, because I can pay as much as I want. I think it is important to have websites like this and pay a little bit for it."
  • "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 am always looking for sources to enhance students' learning. ISLCollective is by far the best support for English teachers like me. I teach ESL at a college in the Middle East and ISL Collective has been a life saver for me whenever I need to expand explanations and to practice. There are so many contributors and worksheets to choose from. Sometimes you can get wonderful ideas to include on your tests. Thanks ISL Collective. I will continue my support as long as I am an English teacher. "

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.
