The making of primary modern language resources is more passion than wishing to make money. It is a minority subject. The lack of support and general fudging of what is acceptable delivery in primary schools for modern languages on the part of the government has not helped matters. Are sales the only marker for quality resources? Is not the market for resources also a significant factor! Is this the message that TES really want to send to authors? If sales is all it is about will this not encourage authors to primarily focus on core subjects where they can be assured of getting the necessary sales? Everyone in the world comes to TES expecting to find everything they need - will that be true in the future? Could other factors in the selecting of gold authors not also play a part so as to encourage the breadth and depth of inventory currently provided?
