Resources for teaching any language

If it works for one language, it can often work for another. The resources here can all be used for teaching any language, from Arabic to Greek or Latin to Urdu. Access to the vast majority of them is free once you have registered as a free member – you can browse, search, download and print resources whenever you like. But it's only as a subscriber that you get full control – because then you can tweak, adapt and differentiate with our Microsoft Office and interactive versions. Never again will you need to reinvent the wheel!
