What educators are saying

I used this with English conversational lessons with non-native speaker students. The students enjoyed the game and it was a fun way for them to develop their confidence with speaking in English.
Thanks for creating this game. I use it with studetns who are still learning English and asking questions is one skill they are mastering.

My students love playing card games! Need a creative and competitive way to practice and improve responding to What ,When, Where and Why open-ended questions? This is the game for you. Similar to a classic numbers and colors card game that students already know and love - this version is modified to work in Elementary, ESL and EFL classrooms. It helps improve correct answer formation for questions in the Present Simple, Past Simple and Present Continuous forms. Easy and low prep. Just print, laminate and cut out the cards to use over and over again throughout the year.
