Having bumped into the site in question I hardly believed my eyes - was completely astonished to spot so much useful and practical information! Since that time I have been sharing my discovery with my best friends.
You did a lot to help spread the English Word in the world. You deserve more than thanks.
I've been using Englishtips for more than a year, and have told friends, workmates and students about it. My favorite spot on the internet, for sure! Thanks for all the hard work!
Thanks! Without you teachers from smaller places like ours wouldn't have such a great chance to vary their classes!
Englishtips is a treasure-house and a friend. I have recommended it to many of my students, friends, and colleagues, and everybody is grateful to you and to me too!
I think englishtips is the best thing ever happened to me throughout my career. Thanks alot for all your tremendous effort.
I am usually not on those social sites with all that blahblah where people exchange info about their pets and other personal problems, but your site is nearly on my daily program! The chat is interesting with people presenting certain teaching methods and especially I like to hear about different methods in different countries! Keep it up that way, guys. You are really a great community for teaching and learning!
I won't say Englishtips.org is the best thing that has ever happened to me, but I am sure to treasure you for the rest of my life.
I haven't even dreamt of such a website! It is amazingly amazing work! :)
I have been learning English for several years, my motivation dwindling from time to time. I have just passed CPE thanks to the invaluable help of ENGLISHTIPS.ORG. I would like therefore to express my heartfelt thanks for managers of this website and a myriad international community that supports it. Thank you!
This site is the best thing that could happen to a teacher of the third world where children don't have money to pay for a book. So I thank you on behalf of the children of Argentina.
Englishtips has simply changed my life to the better. I would recommend this website to anyone who is interested in developing themselves to the better.
I really owe this site alot. Thanks to the founder and all the contributing members, a great variety of resources became available to everyone, especially those who can't afford them financially. Thank you from all my heart.
A heaven on earth.
Englishtips is like having Christmas every day: new presents, interesting people, absorbing topics :)
Englishtips.org has been an eye opener to me. The fact that so many people are willing to take time and share their materials is a wonderful thing. Living in a country where there are not (yet) many English books available, Englishtips is a real treasure cove to me. Never knew I could find all this. It has helped me enormously in teaching English and certainly helped me making it more fun and more interesting. From the bottom of my heart, thank you - everybody who participates as well as the Administrator and TC's.
Englishtips helped me not only to finish my studies in time, but also to be one of the most respected English teachers in my country. Therefore it is really hard to thank and express my admiration to all of those who kept it alive. It was strange when I first entered this site... Once you get in, is hard to get away. There's everything you need.. to pass an exam, to find what to teach, to read for fun.... it's really an amazing place which also is worth paying although it's absolutely free of charge.
Without Englishtips I would be virtually unable to do my work. When I'm considering buying English coursebooks, which are, as we all know, impossibly expensive, I always come here to check whether the resource is worth buying or not. Although there may be marvellous pre- and reviews for the book and you can even have a look at a few sample pages on the publisher's page, you can still discover that the book is a real disappointment and you can't use it for the money you gave away for it. Vivat Englishtips!
I would like to thank you a lot for this miraculously wonderful site. I lack my words to express my gratitude. My day starts with englishtips.org and it has been going on for more than two years. I wish you success and prosperity in your unstinting work.
This place is amazing! You can find here what you have never dreamed of! Not mentioning the costs of the books nowadays... Nobody can have all these books on his shelves. And we can vary our activities a lot, so good bye boredom! Here comes the Englishtipser!
For me Englishtips.org is the most important website for everyone - from English student to other course student such as engineering students, business students, etc. It's more helpful and plenty of materials for me than my college library. I love Englishtips.org the most. Cheers.
englishtips.org is a teacher's secret garden just a few clicks away... how on Earth have I survived so many years without you???
Englishtips is Heaven on Earth for all English teachers and English language students. Right from your first visit you get the warmest of welcomes, and once you get that sense of belonging to this community, you become addicted. The giving is as important as the receiving.

My name is Boris. I'm from Colombia. When you enter this place, you fall in love at first time. This is one of the best communities I've ever seen. I have learned English by myself, and today I teach it for a living and for free. But, obviously, you need materials to improve and to teach. Well, this is the right place to visit. Some things you'll never find here are selfishness, arrogance, or neglect. Englishtips, I love youuuUUUU!!!
Englishtips.org has been with my life since two years ago. This terrific site always accompanies me in doing my master degree and teaching my students. No day without browsing the number one site on Earth. No browsing without Englishtips.org. I'm really indebted. Syahid - Indonesia.
Been around with the site since 2006 and it's my eternal favourite, apart from news sites. This is the site I always check as soon as I have my laptop started

ENGLISHTIPS is simply a GOLD MINE for anyone learning or teaching English! By far the best website I have come across, it has become part of my life. Monica, Romania
That's by far the best site I've ever seen. I couldn't believe my eyes the first time I saw it. And you are always updating it, making it better and better. Congratulations on all of you who can keep on doing such a great job!
I don't remember when I noticed about this amazing website, however since then, I've been adicted to. It has made me grow up as a teacher and see my own life different. Thanks a lot. keep sharing with all of us.
Englishtips became the whole Universe for me! I find here everything about everything! This is the greatest resource of knowledge and what is really noble about it is that it's free! Knowledge must be free! I'm really grateful to everyone who contributed to this web site. It's pure gold! Thank you! Eugene, Uzbekistan
Dear Englishtip-workers-cooperators-users-lovers-of-it-whoever! This is amazing, economical, interesting, 21st century information and reading tool. This site kills the sleep, the appetite and the unemployment-psychosis. I suppose after some time I will know also the not-so-good things but it will take me a long time!! Thank you so much for sharing your know-how, time and ICT-knowledge as well as your time with me (US).
I love this site, I have from the first time I saw it. The site has helped me, like so many others, to find EFL books. But I also like the site because it has many different kinds of books, pdf's, audio books etc. for me to enjoy. Just imagine the money I saved by downloading all that fantastic material. A enormous thank you to the site for being there but an even bigger thank you to all the people spending their precious time uploading all the material. Orestiada, Greece
Such a fantastic site! The best on the net. It really is a great help to me living here where books are difficult to find. I just wish to say how much I appreciate all of you. Thank you for everything. Audrey, Egypt

Who other than MIT scientist Steven Pinker could explore a single linguistic phenomenon - the use of irregular verbs - from the vantage points of psychology, biology, history, philosophy, linguistics, and child development?In Words and Rules, Pinker answers questions about the miraculous human ability called language and does it in the gripping, witty style of his other bestsellers. As the stories unfold, the reader is immersed in the evolution of the English language over the centuries, the theories of Noam Chomsky and his critics, the simulation of neural networks on computers, the illuminating errors of children as they begin to speak, the tragic loss of language from neurological disease, and more illustrations using humorous wordplay than anyone would have thought possible. Pinker makes sense of all these phenomena with the help of a single powerful idea: that the essence of language is a mental dictionary of memorized words and a mental grammar of creative rules.Pinker is well known for his skills of explaining the art and science of language. His bestselling book How the Mind Works was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, and was the #1 bestselling book for amazon.com in 1997. His other bestseller The Language Instinct was named one of the Ten Best Books of 1994 by The New York Times Book Review and nominated for the William James Book Award by the American Psychological Association.
This book presents a 'hot topic'--critical literacy--in a unique setting: a junior kindergarten....Most people, teachers in particular, think primary age kids, let alone preschoolers, are too young for this. Vivian shows not only that it can be done, but that done well (and her practice was certainly gorgeous), it promotes a depth of learning that teachers, parents, and even the kids themselves recognize....The case she makes for critical literacy being not only powerful but pleasurable and hopeful is important and often missing from other books on the subject....What an extraordinary achievement and what an extraordinary contribution to the fields of early childhood education, early literacy, and language education!
Contemporary, philosophical, cultural, political and sociological influences have had a crucial impact on the way in which we approach and understand texts. Language, Literature and Critical Practice examines the major consequences of these influences on textual analysis and the role of language within it, and provides an overview of developments in language-centered criticism in the twentieth century.
Using a wide-ranging variety of texts, the author reviews and evaluates an equally wide-ranging variety of approaches to textual commentary, introducing the reader to the fundamental distinction between "actual" and "virtual" words in critical practice and theories of language, and elucidating the critically important practice of how texts mean.
How to Study Linguistics: A Guide to Understanding Language This book provides an ideal introduction to those new to the subject of linguistics. It assumes no prior knowledge and is a refreshingly practical and clear guide to an often complex subject many find daunting. The book covers all the core topics of linguistic study, with chapters discussing strategies for studying phonology, syntax and semantics, as well as branches of linguistics such as sociolinguistics, stylistics and psycholinguistics.
The contemporary young reader learns from a very early age to read and interpret through a broad range of media. Literacies Across Media explores how a group of boys and girls, aged from ten to fourteen, make sense of narratives in a variety of formats, including print, electronic book, video, DVD, computer game and CD-ROM. This book records these young people over a period of eighteen months as they read, view and play different texts, demonstrating variations and consistencies of interpretative behaviour across different media.
Margaret Mackey analyses how the activities of reading, viewing and playing intertwine and affect each other's development. Her in-depth research shows young readers developing strategies for interpreting narratives through encounters with a diverse range of texts and media. The study breaks new ground in its illustration and exploration of the impact of cross-media fertilisation on how young readers come to an understanding of how to make sense of stories.
Literacies Across Media offers both a vivid account of a group of young readers coming to terms with texts and a radical perspective on the growth of a generation of young readers. It is thought-provoking, fascinating and highly informative reading not only for theoreticians interested in the reading process, but also teachers, librarians, parents and anybody involved with young people and their texts.
New Edition for the December 2008 exam. The expert series delivers the rigorous exam training and thorough language development that will have your high-achieving students scoring top marks every time.
