Help ESL students master common words and phrases with these free flashcards! Flashcards are one of the best ways to kickstart learning in young students who are being introduced to new subjects for the very first time. From numbers to basic sight words to the names of body parts, teaching your ESL students through flashcard activities and games is fun, engaging, and impactful.
Use these prinatable, free ESL flashcards in your next lesson plan, or send them home with your students to get even more practice. Oftentimes, you can even use these flashcards as conversation cards, to play memory games, or engage in a round of go fish. We love how multi-purpose they are, and science proves their effectiveness in multiple ways. According to Brainscape, flashcards engage "active recall," a powerful learning tool that encourages students to remember concepts on their own, rather than seeing them and recognizing them like they would when reading an excerpt in a book or seeing it on a multiple choice exam.
By using these ESL flashcards, beginners will learn quickly and enjoy their experience diving into ESL. If you're looking for more activities for young learners, check out our top speaking and grammar worksheets!
