Flash Cards and Lesson Materials

This page contains flash cards and lesson materials for English lessons.





Most materials are A4-sized (similar to US 8.5″x11″ letter-sized paper), although some are B4-, A3-, or B5-sized.

To make large flashcards for teacher use, print the cards as-is. To make small cards for student use, use the Adobe Reader’s multiple-page setting or the equivalent printer setting to print 8 or 9 pages (cards) per page. For an A4-based, 9-per-page printout, cut at 70mm and 99 mm for nice, evenly-spaced cards.

Preferably, use Microsoft Word, Adobe Reader, or Foxit Reader for best results.
