  10. Hi,
    I’m an English teacher, qualified native ;) and I came across your site via Google.

    I would just like to know if it is allowed to download any material from your site to pass on to my students (many different levels) who are interested in learning or improving their current English language skills.

    If not, I suppose I will just direct them here and hope they will use it.

    I think it’s a great site – with a well thought out design and students should be able to find their way around it without any difficulty.

    Best regards.
