My real name is Mª Cristina. I am a teacher of English in Burgos (Spain)  and I teach in a primary school.

I started this website because I wanted to share all the best free teaching  resources that I could find in internet. Now, I continue doing it.

madrastra.es is a page plenty of useful resources for teaching and learning english organised in a comprehensive way.

I consider that madrastra.es  can be very useful  either for teachers or students of english. madrastra.es  can help yourself  to improve your own english acknowledgement.

If you like this page and consider that it is useful, please share it with your colleagues. The team of this web  will be very grateful.

It is offered free for all to use

I get asked some interesting questions. Below are the most common.

 Why did you start the site? I thought I could create an awesome page full of free resources all over internet to help  people to use throughout the world. When I started teaching, it was really difficult in general to find good material and resources, even books, to teach young learners. I used to spend lots and lots of hours looking for something that I could use in my classes. But internet grew in a fast and incredible way and lots of resources started to appear. So, I got a great collection of web pages and I thought it could be a great idea to share all this material with other teachers of english and students.

 If I find an error or typo, what should I do?Please e-mail me as soon as possible. There are invariably going to be errors on a site so large. I do my very best to edit the site, but I am sure it is not free of errors. I am the only editor for madrastra.es

 How much time do you spend  working on madrastra.es? I haven’t got so much time as I would like to do it. So, I mainly work in madrastra.es during the weekends. At the beginning, I spent lot of time doing it. Now  that the page has increased so much I try to  spend as much as possible but, above all, in weekends and holidays to maintain it.

 Can I link to madrastra.es ?Yes, please do. Permission is not necessary.

How did you make this website? It wasn’t me.  I always have  the help of another person who knows a lot about websites. He did it!.  But it’s me who edits the site. 

When  did you started this website? We are really  happy because we started in October 2014 and in only three years this webpage has had  more than 2,000,000 of visitors. (We had also some difficulties when  we couldn’t make the page work for a couple of times).
