Why did this block occur?
A Court in Germany ordered that access to certain items in the Project Gutenberg collection are blocked from Germany. Project Gutenberg believes the Court has no jurisdiction over the matter, but until the issue is resolved, it will comply.

Of course if you have gone combat strong or have stubborn troops a captain with a battle standard can be invaluable. Warrior priests add that little bit of combat power to a unit of knights on the charge with the hatred rule, they add a dispel dice and have some spells which if you can get off can be extremely useful (healing the emperor's.

How can I get unblocked?
All IP addresses in Germany are blocked. This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes.
If your IP address lookup is incorrect
Use the Maxmind GeoIP demo to verify status of your IP address. Project Gutenberg updates its listing of IP addresses approximately monthly.
Occasionally, the website mis-applies a block from a previous visitor. Because blocks are applied momentarily, you should try again later to visit https://www.gutenberg.org if Maxmind shows your address as being outside of Germany.
If your IP address is shown by Maxmind to be outside of Germany and you were momentarily blocked, another issue is that some Web browsers erroneously cache the block. Trying a different Web browser might help. Or, clearing the history of your visits to the site.
I have other questions or need to report an error
Please email the diagnostic information above to (removing the spaces around the @) and we will try to help. The software we use sometimes flags 'false positives' -- that is, blocks that should not have occurred. Apologies if this happened, because human users outside of Germany who are making use of the eBooks or other site features should almost never be blocked.

Let's Teach English Unit 9: Vocational Language
Welcome to Let's Teach English. This series offers free online training for English language educators worldwide. Voice of America and the University of Oregon are partners on this project.
In this lesson, students work on an independent project. Each student researches a job and creates an interview dialog for someone trying to get that job. During class, the students practice their interview role-plays with one another. Then, they perform them with partners for other students in a small group.
As the first pair is doing their role play, the teacher stops to ask them to predict what the next question will be. Predicting is a learning strategy that can help academically as well as in a real-life situation, such as a job interview.
They also give each other feedback, using the checklist. Large classes can still do this type of speaking activity by performing in pairs and small groups.
