This is one of the best websites I ever came across! It’s just simply the best website for English, apart from the web dictionaries 😉
I’ve been using this website for getting great grades (alliteration is one of those things that your games inspired me to do; not that yours are bad though) at my examinations for atleast 2 years.
I will be forever grateful to Mr. Morton for his wonderful website!
Mr. Morton/ March 24, 2021
Thank you for visiting and the kind words!

English is my second language.
It is with great pleasure that I found your web site. Over the summer 2020, I printed almost all your reading comprehension materials for my grade 7 and 9 kids to read. I myself read each of them too and answered each of the questions. Your web sites rekindled my interest in reading as an adult.
I am bit selfish to hope there are more reading comprehension materials for my kids and myself.
Thank you for your great work! The world becomes more beautiful because of your altruistic contribution.
Mr. Morton/ September 16, 2020
Thank you for taking the time to comment. I am always trying to create more content as well as improve the existing content. Best wishes, friend!

Hello Mr Morton,
WOW!! these worksheets, games and activities are simply outstanding!! I am a teacher from Pakistan and these worksheets have helped me immensely in my learning as well as in the school when I share them with my students!! Thank you SOOOO much!
I came across figurative language activities which was just the thing I was looking for but I would really appreciate if you could put up activities related to other grammar content; for example, characterization, inferential, fact and opinion, and all other content which we can integrate in our classroom activities.
Mr. Morton/ August 1, 2018
That’s awesome. I actually have all of that content posted already. I’ve got to figure out some way to make the content more visible. Thanks for visiting!

punongnhs/ October 25, 2016
very helpful, exercises are enriching.
Uwe/ October 20, 2016
I’ve read three of the passages you have here.
The first one was about metal detectors, was amusing, I like it and it’s good to know some of this facts.
The second one was a persuasive text about seat belts, how them keep us safe and the author keeps telling us to use them.
And the third one, my favourite, was about the pony express and how they carry the mail and how hard was and the complications, it’s interesting because they had a problem and they sorted it out in a clever way.
I like your website, thank you very much.
Mr. Morton/ March 23, 2017
I’m so happy that you do. Best wishes!
