Publications

The following listed resources are available. They were originally written as PAR worksheets that would also be suitable as Homework pages. They were sold as Photocopy Masters. For a while they were sold in booklet form for use as Photocopy Masters or as textbooks for students to work from.

Information for purchasers of PAR resources

Most lessons appearing in the PAR software are available as PDFs:

Purchasers of PAR PDFs are permitted to print from them: make booklets or worksheets for use within the Centre that they are licensed for.

We are all set with Pay Pal which allows you to pay using your Credit Card or whatever suits.

Before ordering any of these please contact us for a price list and to arrange the best deal.

“The PDF format is far better for me than the booklet style, as it only takes a second to print a sheet, rather than the clumsy process of scanning and copying which ends up with an inferior copy.”
