 FAQ

 

 

CAN I USE ENGLISH4TODAY IF I DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH WELL?

Yes! Many of the resources have been specifically designed for users who do not have English as their first language. English4Today is an ideal site for learning English and building your English language confidence. The magazine 'Hi!' is also designed specifically for users who do not have English as a second language.

What can I access free of charge?

There are many resources that we offer free of charge - and we are adding to them all the time! For example, you can access the award winning Online English Grammar, the Guide to Punctuation, A Guide to Writing Well and many articles and other useful resources. Keep checking the 'Free Resources' section.

  • Free software downloads

  • Vocabulary builder
  • Online dictionary

Premium Content is content usually supplied by one of our partners and offered to our members at a discounted rate. Examples of Premium Content are:

  • Online Teacher (you are taught by a real person for a selected number of hours)
  • Editing (an editing service for papers, reports, essays etc.),
  • Translation (translate your documents into English),
  • Online Courses
  • Examination Preparation (e.g. for IELTS or TOEFL).

What DO I NEED TO USE THE ONLINE RESOURCES?

  • Current web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Firefox etc.)
  • Cookies and Javascript enabled in the browser
  • Flash Player installed (free from www.macromedia.com)
  • Optional: sound card, microphone and video card

What DO I NEED TO USE THE ENGLISH4TODAYDESKTOP EDITION?

The English4Today Desktop Edition runs on your personal computer (PC) and requires the Windows operating system. There is not a version for Mac available yet although we are planning one. It will run on all Windows systems from Win98 upwards. To use the Internet connection facility you will also need an Internet connection.

You will need:

  • Internet Explorer 6+ (installed on nearly all Windows machines)
  • Flash Media Player (free from www.macromedia.com)
  • Sound card and video card

Please note that Internet Explorer must be installed on your system although you do not need to open it or use it as your primary browser.

HOW DOES THE DESKTOP EDITION WORK WITH THE INTERNET?

One of the features of the Desktop edition is that it works seamlessly with the Internet. From within the application you can connect directly to the English4Today website and to all of its features (if you have a membership). Updates, downloads and new items are loaded directly into the desktop edition and various resources sent directly to the software - e.g. Tip of the Day, Quote of the Day and Vocabulary Builder. You need, of course, to have an Internet connection but once this is established everything you need is within the software. When you go off-line you will have enriched the desktop application with new materials as well as having been able to use all of the Internet specific and English4Today online materials.

WHAT IS THE FREE CONTENT FOR MY WEBSITE?

English4Today syndicates free content for you to use on your website. It is very simple to add it to any page on your website : complete the application form, copy the small amount of code that we provide into the page of your choice and the content is delivered to your website free of charge. Currently we syndicate the Online English Grammar which includes the Guide to Punctuation and Guide to Writing and which contains a number of other sections. We also syndicate English language level tests. The advantages for you are:

  • You get a resource that attracts new visitors, keeps existing visitors on your sites and gives them good reasons to come back.
  • We supply, maintain and create all of the content - you just have to add the few lines of code to the page.
  • You get a large resource in your branded pages which looks and feels as if it is part of your website - you can even select from a number of 'skins' to create a look that fits with your website or have us create a skin specifically for you.
  • You have a flexible admin section where you can select the look of the resource, download your lists, select to join the affiliate program and set certain messages for your users.
  • You can build up (with placement tests) your own mailing list of users to your site and create your own branded newsletters
  • You can earn revenue every time one of your users buys a membership to access all of the English4Today resources or buys an English4Today desktop software publication.

If you want a multi-user or network membership for all of the English4Today materials (often suitable for businesses, colleges, libraries and schools) we can arrange this also. All of your users then become members of English4Today and can use the whole range of English4Today services. Find out more here.

CAN I CHANGE THE LOOK OF THE CONTENT ON MY WEBSITE?

You can select from a number of pre-designed 'skins'. For example, the 'Business Skin' is suitable for business websites and the 'College Skin' for the 15-25 age-group. We are working on adding more skins as time goes on. You can also request that we design a skin specifically for your website or business.

HOW DOES THE AFFILIATE PROGRAM WORK ?

Very simply! There are two ways that it can work:

  1. If you use our free content on your website you can choose to also sign up for the affiliate program. Once signed up you will earn up to 25% on every English4Today membership signed up through your website and 25% on the sale of any English4Today desktop edition. And, unlike other programs, when a user renews through your site you continue to earn your commission.
  2. If you are a teacher and do not have a website you can sign up for the Teachers Affiliate Program and earn 25% on sales of English4Today memberships and desktop software. Your students sign up through a special page that you are provided with on our site which holds your tracking code.
