About teaching material   
Dear all
I have been a member for a long time now, and most of you know me very well. I think the site is marvelous e has helped me and taught mea lot about English material. That�s why I would like to open a discussion and perhaps Victor could also give his opinion. As I am also a moderator, I�m looking closely to the worksheets.It happens very often now, that people send things, that in my opinion can�t be considered worksheets as ( always in my opinion) worksheet means that there should be something to work on. Almost every day now we can find presentations of a grammar point - for instance  to Verb to be in Present tense, negative and positive and interrogativ. No task included. This kind of presentation can be found anywhere, in coursebooks, online. I don�t see why this is called a resource. Same with vocabulary lists. I know that Victor said that they are allowed, but if there is a task. Vocabulary lists also can be found online, so I can�t see the utility. Same with spot the differences. The author copies and pasts a picture , that�s all. Of course, some of them, with exercices are extremely useful.
Please give me your opinion.

Silvia, when I see a worksheet that I cannot consider to be a worksheet, I think "I will trust Silvia on this.", then I will "agree" that it should be removed.

"Worksheets consisting just of lists (such as "Phrasal verbs list" or "Irregular verbs list") are allowed, although they are not recommended because everybody can find them in other websites for free. Of course, they are not allowed if you have copied them from another source."

We used to get a lot of such lists and checking to see if they were copies was a bane. I have made many lists of useful vocabulary over the years as they can help greatly in designing materials, though I have not thought to share them here, but if I do I will at least state their purpose and possible usage. I suppose they are here to stay.

In the gutters -meaning   
Hi to all, 
I have a problem translating "In the gutters" from Orwell 1984, on page 84. In our language it is translated in such a way that it has the meaning on/in the street. The whole sentence is:
" They were born, they grew up in the gutters, they went to work at twelve, they passed through a brief blossoming-period of beauty and sexual desire, they were married at twenty, they were middle-aged at thirty, they died, for the most part, at sixty.
I assume that in the gutters here means to be raised in some kind of waste. As I am not sure what in the gutters means in this part, I would like some help in clarification of the phrase please.

Excellent explanation from spinney. I think its usually in the gutter rather than the plural. It kind of matches another phrase we use dragged up, rather than brought up. She was dragged up means she had a poor upbringing.

For all those who downloaded my worksheet : My God! Present Perfect x Simple Past.
I don�t know why, but there were a lot of typing mistakes. I have already corrected, but for those who downloaded it and don�t want to loose an other point with the corrected worksheet, leave me a PM with your email and I�ll send it to you.
Sorry again.
Stay safe.

Hello Silvia!
Dont worry. Maybe it´s the Windows spelling checker that corrects automatically your words. 
Im from Argentina and I have that problem when I write in Italian since Spanish is very similar.
Stay safe!

Caption contest 2020 week 38--Winner   
Happy Friday!
The inputs for the "bride in the water with the arrow" picture were great, I really enjoyed them. In reality the girl was doing something known as noodling--catching catfish with your bare hands--no idea why she would do that on her wedding day, but who am I to judge?
If you want to know more about noodling, here is a link to a National Geographic video about it Noodling
In the end I had to choose one and David Lisgo is that lucky person--I´m a big fan of mythology and enjoyed his reference to Cupid/Eros.
Have a great weekend everybody! ---and please stay safe.
