  • What is your copyright law? I would like to download these lessons and use them in developing countries where I go and teach english in a voluntary position. Can I leave the lesson plans with the teachers in these countries?

  • I really welcome material for absolute beginners and the different lesson plans for Roman script/no roman script are brilliant but why do the worksheets and alphabet use capital letters? It's better that students use lower case letters and learn capitals later.
