Hi Inspiration,
 
When I can īt find exactly what I īm looking for amongst all the wonderful contributions here, I just go ahead and make it myself.
 
I īm afraid it īs the only solution unless you want to try another site or buy some resources from an shop that stocks esl resources.
 
Good luck whatever you decide to do!

Inspiration,
don īt you think it īs a little rude to say you didn īt like our worksheets? frankly speaking, i wouldn īt dare say something like that on the forum... Maybe you didn īt found what you īre looking for, that doesn īt mean all those worksheets are not interesting...
as far as I īm concerned, when I can īt find a worksheet that would be suitable for my pupils, I create it! so I think you should follow Juliag īs advice!
Have a nice day!

Actually, Elojolie, I don īt think it īs rude at all. He didn īt say they weren īt interesting, nor did he insult anyone. He simply said he didn īt like the ones he saw. Are all members required to LIKE everything? Give a guy a break.

On the other hand, I don īt see how we can help you, Inspiration, unless you give us a little, well, inspiration:  What exactly are you looking for in a classroom language WS for complete beginners. If you can īt be more specific, then (as suggested above) make it yourself!

Hello,

I didn īt mean to be rude myself, and i īm afraid you think of me as a bad person now... all i meant to say is "be careful with the words you used"... for me, when you wrote "I need a good worksheet about classroom language for complete beginners. I went through all worksheets to do with this , but didn īt like them" it felt like you had found no good ws here... maybe it was just the way you said it what bothered me...

let me give you some advice: sometimes, I download a ws because I like the idea/theme the author used, but the vocabulary is not exactly what I īm looking for, so I adapt the worksheet I downloaded. Why don īt you try to do that?

I īve got a ws that may suit you - it īs a list of sentences pupils should know in 6e, 5e, 4e - considering they are beginners in 6e - I can īt upload it because it īs taken from a book and there īs some French on it (but it shouldn īt be a problem since you īre from Morocco, right?), but if you send me a PM with your email address, i īll be happy to send it via email!

have a nice friday
Elodie

In the US - we would politely say - I didn īt find what I was looking for.

That way, no one is offended.

Hi again,
 
Please do not make assumptions about what other people are thinking, I think it is unfair.
Much as you may not agree with me and you are free to disagree with me, I was only trying to help you by telling you what I would do in the same situation.
 
Why don īt you write a list of the specific phrases you are looking for in the worksheet? That will make it much easier for other teachers to let you know if they have the kind of worksheet you are looking for or not.
 
Great day to all, or night here actually
Julia
