A2 Speaking cards

A2 Speaking cards

A simple set of 54 speaking cards on the topics of:ENVIRONMENT >Pollution >Energy >Protecting the planetTHE MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY >Immigration >Integration >RacismCONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES >Wealth and poverty >Law and order >IT Just print and play!To be honest I love these cards simply because they are so easy to store (can easily fit into the palm of your hand) and the students can take them with them as either homework or practice. Somehow students are keener to work on a small card rather than the normal A4 format for some reason. I guess it looks like less hard work when it's really the same :) .
