    Hi M. Morton,
    Thanks so much for you generosity. I’m a mom of a grade 7 student. She is a french school. But still as we live in Canada, I want her to master the nuances of the language. Especially that we don’t speak English at home. The kids are polyglote. Your Website is perfect, thanks a ton.

    Hi. I love this site and I have been with you for years!

    I am an Adult Education Teacher and it is difficult to find lower level reading worksheets written in a way that is not insulting to adult learners.

    The content here is appropriate for my students from my lowest level readers all the through to the advanced.

    Thank you for this! Please, keep up the fantastic work!!!
