It depends on a book. If it is a public domain book then you can publish such worksheets here, if it is a copyrighted book, especially an ESL book, then you cannot do that.

  • You can use texts from other websites or books in your worksheets if you add your own exercises or activities (For example, reading comprehension questions, etc). Please don īt take texts from other ESL websites or books, it would be unfair.

  • If your worksheet is just a reading text, it will only be accepted if the text is written by you.

  • It is acceptable to take a text from other sources (not ESL websites or ESL books) and add your own exercises or activities, but you are not allowed to take an exercise from another source and add more exercises of your own. All the exercises must be yours.
