RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.


The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

New startup for learning languages!

Hello everybody,
I want to introduce my idea of words learning and hear what you think.

So, I know that many people from all ages need to learn words in some cases of their life, for example, for learning another language, for traveling another country and learn basic words, for doing some test in school or university etc..

When I was a kid it was so hard for me to learn so much words (30 a day for school tests...) an right now I learning for getting accepted by the university, and I need to learn 3000 words in just 1 month.

I found a great mini-game that help me learn that words in little time. like 50 words for 1 hour. and I was wondering if making a website that provide this service will be a good idea.

I want to know what you think - thanks Smile

ps: I start to raise money for that system you can see here more information:
and here our website + facebook fan page:

RE: New startup for learning languages!

coming soon?
and will you teach only words? And I'm judging that English isn't your first language.

RE: New startup for learning languages!

well yes, my English isn't my first language, but it doesn't matter.
I have the technique, and I raise now that money for building everything. like you see at the first link.
when I will finished to raise the money, I will build the system and pay for people for building the part of the English words. the French, the Spanish, and more...

my goal is to serve languages for everyone. It means that everyone which want to learn some language I will help him do so.
When the site will open it will help to learn just few langauge, but slowly it will grow.


yes, the site will learn only words, but as well it will learn sentences and I learn many languages just with words and sentecnes.
even though mybe at the future I will build a grammer system to the site.


you ask for coming soon - yes. I am designer, and I know to encoding websites. my first language is Hebrew so I can make the Hebrew Pack.
But I need money for the system, and the other languages packs...
And this the reason I introduce now the website. because I need people to intribute for me.
I offer people to intribute for me how much they want, and I will give them a user in the beta + a user who can use the website when it will open.

I hope you help Smile
and you can ask whatever you want... I am glad to answer Smile
