Each set contains 160 Conversation Cards, for a total of 320 Conversation Cards each with one question that will serve as conversation starter. Each card is professionally illustrated, questions are easily worded and imaginative, there are no repetitions and they are designed specifically to keep learners engaged. Each set is divided into 10 topics, so you can use them throughout the year as you gradually introduce each unit. The topics covered by the combined sets are:

Each page is reproducible, allowing you to create your own version of the cards.
As part of your download you will find zip folders containing a total of 600+ Professionally Illustrated Clipart|Graphic Elements related to a variety of ESL topics.
