Teach & Learn Language Verb with Flashcards

use flashcard to teach simple sentence verb vocabulary
dig, rest, ride, slide, play, stand
how to use flashcards to learn or teach language verb
hang, catch, swing, jump, skate, kick

for most language learners, either natives, second language, foreign language; composing new sentence can be challenging. As an educator, or as parents, you may want to know how to use flashcards to learn or teach a language. Thus, you will need to know how to make flashcards. Don’t start from scratch, use the already made one, and edit it.

Using quizlet to teach vocab is motivating. It is essential for new language learners to study or acquire more verbs and practice how to compose the sentence using simple structure. I recommend using this template.

Simple sentence structure [ S + Modal CAN + Base Verb ] can be a good start as it is easy to construct. The learner can start with:

  • I can jump
  • I can ride
  • I can slide
  • I can …

You can add more verbs with more images. This will be very helpful and handy. After several times practicing composing that simple composition, a learner will develop innate structure, and she/he will be able to produce more sentences with various verbs. Gradually, you would need to add more with objects to make longer sentence. Eventually, the learner will be capable of composing and producing his/her own sentences to express what they want to convey.

The picture is in cartoon, and it is design in flat. It looks good, but it is not easy to make. If you do not have drawing skills, you can use photos from internet. Anyway, here is the template.
