A new School Times website for students!

This year, 2014, is the 20th anniversary of The School Times. To mark our two successful decades we have now created a special website for your students to login to. At present, only teachers are allowed to access our full site and archives to print our materials and use our audio texts. However, at our new ‘student site’ your students will be able to access the latest issue and Worksheets (without the Teacher’s Page) each month. Of course, this requires a special login and during 2014 we are offering this new student access ‘free of charge’ to our current subscribers.

Teachers,  log-in to our full site for details!
