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!

    "I believe it is only fair to support the work done by both the iSL crew and the thousands of teachers willing to share their materials with other colleagues. I felt the least I could do was to make a donation. After all, the web is superbly organized and very user-friendly, and the materials are brilliant most of the times. It really does save class preparation time. Keep it up!"

    "This site is quite helpful and supports me in my German lessons as a teacher. I support this site every time. You can get here a lot helpful things free of cost. I'm such a big fan and thankful for such a page!"

    "I donated to iSL because the worksheets and powerpoints make my lessons much funnier, easier to understand, more colourful and interesting! Thanks a lot to both the authors and the site!"
  • 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!
  • JugeKo JugeKo
    I sponsored iSLCollective because it offers many options for teachers in a variety of languages. I found interesting ideas and saved much time, because the website is logically structured and I can quickly find what I need. I would like to thank the whole iSLcollective team for sharing so many ideas.

    "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."
  • "For me, sponsoring iSLCollective was an opportunity to support a thriving community of engaged users and contributors. I personally found plenty of very useful materials and, in some cases, almost perfectly suited for my online classes. What I appreciate is the versatility of materials provided by experienced teachers and tutors of English. By becoming a sponsor I wanted to say 'Thank you' for their time, great ideas, creative approach to teaching and the will of sharing these with the rest of the community."
  • "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.. :)"
  • "Unfortunately I don't teach anymore but I was so greatful for all those beautiful different sorts worksheets. And I think everybody should consider sponsoring because, let's face it, nothing is for free. There are big charges just for running your website and if not us, who else should participate on paying. Thank you""

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.

Hi, Is it possible to pay in other currencies??? I really appreciate your work and use your products from time to time. Would be glad to make a small donation, but as I do not have an account in currencies mentioned, facing some difficulties to arrange it. Thanks in advance. From Thailand.
