"I use this with my High School ELL class. For some students, we translate the phrase and then allow them to create their own sentence for it...On our game day, this is the game the students choose to play more often than any other language game in my class." -Heidi W., ELL Instructor


"Used with my middle school intervention group. Great resource!" -M. Creamer


"I have used the card game in my ESL classes. Find them very useful at all levels. Different games with the cards were chosen to suit the level being taught, and proved very engaging for the learners." -Hasnain S.
