I ´ve read some of the very useful tutorials, and I ´ll try to prepare something to share with you. would you tell me which topics are you in need of? this will help me to make something useful. thanks a lot. Naty

I think you should create something you would use for your ss and share it with us. Sometimes I check the topic I´ve chosen among older contributions to see if there are similar wss in order not to repeat something. 

Good luck!

Welcome Natalie! 
 
Look at some of the worksheets that get lots of downloads to give you an idea of what people like. 
 
Mostly, if you just make things that you need for your classes, they will usually be useful to someone here  Just experiment and try things.
Good luck,
Douglas

Hi Natalie and welcome.

Actually I got a bit annoyed today because I couldn ´t find any decent basic, no-frills worksheets on this site. There seems to be an ongoing competition among members to create the most attractive worksheets. More attention is often given to fancy borders, colourful clip art and word art than to actual content (not to mention correct spelling and grammar). Most of the time these wss are just embarrassing when teaching adults.

Have a look at the existing worksheets, download a template if you wish or create your own from scratch. Keep it simple and focus on interesting topics (we ´ve got tons of grammar and reading comprehension already), clear layout and fonts, leave enough space for cloze exercises, and before you know it you ´ll be a premium member (after just 30 downloads).

Hey there,

Philip is right, 30 points is really nothing you should worry about. Make one ws that you think your students would benefit from, share it, and people will download it. My first few ws only had content, no design, and it only took me a week to become premium.

Good luck!

Regards

Hi,
join the more adult oriented section. We are a bit in the minority, I think. Wink
Apart from that - don ´t you have any worksheets already? Just give them a try here.

Anyway - welcome and enjoy! You ´ll get there and love it and become as addicted as all the others. :-)

Greetings from the cold east.

Dear Natalie,
 
 
Just share ws or ppts that you think are useful and I ´m sure many of us will feel the same.
 
Don ´t worry... you ´ll get your points in no time.
 
Hugs from Portugal.
