Co-founder Peter Laszlo's Message



Dear colleagues!

We hope that you found a lot of joy in using our materials in 2017! As it is the time of our traditional Christmas Fundraiser, we are asking you to consider becoming a Supporting Member on iSLCollective. Your help - no matter the amount - makes a huge difference!

We will use the incoming proceeds to maintain and continuously improve the site. 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:
8 iSLCollective staff members make sure that every aspect of the technological and administrative side of the operations is covered professionally.


Finally, let me tell you what our team has accomplished in 2017:

1) We rewrote the code of the worksheet pages from scratch to make them load faster.

2) If you are printing a worksheet directly from iSLCollective, you may have noticed that we made the iSLCollective watermark smaller and placed it lower in the document so that it doesn't block out the contents of the worksheet.

3) We improved the Mypage menu to help you find your favorited resources and your own uploads/creationsmore easily.

4) We added a Next worksheet button on the worksheet page to help you comb through worksheets faster.

5) We added a voting module on each worksheet page that shows you what level that worksheet is most suitable for according to other colleagues.

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

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

8) And finally, we added a host of improvements to our video lessons section.

Donating is loving, so please show your love by making a donation - whatever you can afford - to keep iSLCollective alive and strong in 2018.

Bless up,

Peter Laszlo
iSLCollective Co-founder

P.S.
As a special thank you, we will remove all ads from the site for you during your Supporting Membership period.

    "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!"

    "Me parece una página fantástica que llevo usando al menos tres años, se la recomiendo a cualquier profesor, maestro, alumno para que la utilicen, porque los recurso que se encuentran en ella son estupendos y muy útiles, no me decido a recomendar una actividad en concreto, porque todas son estupendas y desde aquí doy las gracias a todas aquellas personas que trabajan a diario para hacerme el trabajo mas fácil y a mis alumnos más ameno. Thanks a lot"

    "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."

    "I'm teaching German in a primary schools in France - children from 5 to 11 years. Until now I didn't find books and workbooks for this age. On iSLCollective I can find cute worksheets for every theme. I also found many ideas about how to explain things in many different ways. Often I used worksheets in English and translated them into German, because the way of explaining things was so good."
  • MIRNAMORA MIRNAMORA
    "I chose to be a sponsor, because when I was searching very good materials for my students, I found many high quality different worksheets. These are categorized and colourful worksheets. Then, it is easy to find them and funny to work with my students. And the collaboration is accessible for our economies in South America. That's why you should also consider becoming a sponsor."
  • sophie sophie
    ISLCollective has helped me a lot. When I run out of imagination, of time or simply when I'm busy, I can always browse the website for worksheets and lessons for my students. I am really thankful for the time and effort everyone puts into providing this content.
  • stocker70 stocker70
    "Sehr gute Arbeitsblätter, die nach Themen und Niveaus geordnet sind. Ich brauche sie oft für meinen Deutschunterricht."
  • "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."
  • "I teach middle and high school German and have found ISLCollective to be an amazing and valuable resource when looking for worksheets, practice exercises and general teaching ideas. The fact that teachers from all over the world contribute adds a great international flair. I am repeatedly impressed with the quality of so many of the resources on the site. Donate a few dollars and you will be rewarded with time saved over and over again!"
  • "A good community only works if everyone puts in a little share. Hey, this is actually an awesome project! On the one hand, it's just incredible to find so many useful ressources in one spot, and be able to get them. For free. On the other hand, we kind of get used to this, right? Isn't everything in the web for free, sort of? Wikipedia, facebook, youTube, tons of news sites and other sites? No, it isn't. We just tend to forget that. All these sites put in a tremendous amount of work. Some have found other ways to get money, by monetizing your data for example. Or by having people pay to have their content featured. So, it's advertising, just hidden. Others just have a huge network of people willing to work. For free. And so, because nobody is watching us, we start thinking that it is okay to just download and use that work other people have done. For free. But it isn't. Giving back should be a normal thing. And giving back can have multiple forms. You could ask yourself: i have used this platform. It has helped me. How can i help back? Sometimes, this might mean uploading a paper you have created. Sometimes, it might be dropping a line just to say thank you. Sometimes, it is to just donate what you can afford or think is fair. Because, evidently, all this costs money. There is no such thing as free content. Somebody always pays for it. And it is good to contribute to keep it alive and interest-free. Because otherwise, it will disappear. Or be paid for by people who have something to sell. So, yes, do donate. Because it means being a good person. "

Our plans for 2018


We have big plans for 2018. We would like to further develop our new video lesson platform. For example, we'd like to improve class work with video lessons. We would like to replace paper answer sheets and enable you to let your students submit their answers via their mobile phone or tablet while you are showing them the video lesson on the big screen.

We also want to enable you to organize competitions between them, even pairing them up virtually, to motivate them even better.

Besides, we are planning to let you create virtual classes on iSLCollective and add your students to your class, so you can assign them video homework and check if they have done it, and how well they did in a particular video lesson.

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 or +36 30 638 7470.



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").

In case you downloaded more than 50 worksheets ,a captcha appears.
Maybe you've experienced this.
