We have hundreds of flashcards that you can use in the classroom to illustrate, to name just a few, different tenses, verbs, adjectives, prepositions and a whole host of grammatical points.

All flashcards are in PDF format. Most of the flashcards use an image on one page with a word/words printed on the other. Some have an image on each page without words. More details of this can be found in the description of each set. Where there are words printed on a second page, you will have the choice to use that page or not.

The flashcards come in two size formats - A4 (30cm x 21cm, 12in x 8in) and a larger A3 size (42cm x 30cm, 16.5in x 12in).

For more information on printing and using flashcards, go to our Flashcard Tips page.
