Posting Guidelines

The EnglishPAL website allows you to post all your information. We allow one ad for a particular item / job / flat / event etc. Please don't post the same ad (even if re-worded!) more than once. You may re-post after two weeks. 

All postings on EnglishPAL are moderated. Once you posted your ad it will be reviewed by the moderator.

If there are a few possible areas for your ad, please choose the most relevant. Any duplicate ads will be removed or not submitted through to the site.

Please post in the correct category as it helps you in reaching the right audience as well as helps the users to find what there are looking for. If you are in doubt under which category to post your ad please contact the EnglishPAL admin.

Please don't include a link in your ad to further details on another website unless it is permitted in this specific category. Normally you should find everything you need here on EnglishPAL to create a successful ad. And remember, you can use as much space as you like in your ad, you can edit your ad anytime and also include photos and attachments like .pdf or .doc files.

It is not allowed to post unsolicited publicity for other websites or online or offline services without prior consent of EnglishPAL. Services and Buinesses may submit a one-off publicity posting to the category: Community -> General Annoucements. It is solely the decision of EnglishPAL to permit such postings on to the EnglishPAL website. 

It is recommended to choose a meaningful subject line to have a very good outreach for this post. For posting guidelines for the different categories please refer to the relevant section.

What has changed on the new EnglishPAL site?

Login and post to all the pages from one starting point. To offer you the best EnglishPAL experience we make a difference between job postings, property postings, events and everything else (incl. property wanted, skills offered, skills wanted).

 

Choose one or more Towns with one click:

 

Add one or more images. The site will automaticly resize your image.

 

And: We introduce the new system of "Extra Fields". Most but not all sub-categories offer this extra option. For example the  Scholarship category offers the extra search option for: locally & abroad. The category Kids and Teens Courses offers the sub-dividision: Academic & Professional | Leisure | Languages | Art.

In order to make this idea a success always remember to choose the Extra Field!
