About Our Flashcard Sets Worksheets

Repetition is a powerful tool for learning certain things in a new language. While you certainly don’t want to overdo it, running through a list of vocabulary words, verb forms, or idioms with your students can help smooth over some of their trouble spots, and increase their confidence about speaking and writing what they’ve learned. When balanced with a variety of other speaking, reading, writing, and listening activities, memorization drills can prove to be powerful tools in your teaching arsenal.

So what’s the best way to get your students to rehearse a list of words or phrases that they’ve just got to get memorized? Some teachers write out the list on the board, or print it out on a worksheet - and while those methods can sometimes work, there’s something about flashcards that seems to make memorization a lot more intuitive. Maybe it’s the fact that students can flip through the deck at will, and only see one item at a time. Maybe it’s the friendly pictures and boldly printed words on each card. Whatever it is that makes them so engaging, flashcards are a tried-and-true way to help your students absorb the basics of a new ESL topic.

The 300 flashcard sets available here on BusyTeacher.org are especially handy, because they all come with big, bright pictures and easy-to-read words. They cover all kinds of grammar and vocabulary areas, from body parts and household items to emotions and even technical terms. Here on BusyTeacher.org, you’ll never run out of fun flashcards - whether you’re working through a unit on food, holidays, cultures around the world, or even people and characters from modern pop culture.

Some of our flashcards can help your students learn simple words, while others can help them learn descriptive vocabulary, verb forms, English phonemes, and much more, by challenging them to match the right pictures with the descriptions, tenses, or sounds. From level one students learning the English alphabet, all the way to level five students learning to express themselves with fluency, every ESL learner can have fun and sharpen their language skills with our flashcard sets.

Every single set of flashcards on this site is completely free to use and download - and you have BusyTeacher’s worldwide community of ESL teachers to thank for that.
