Sentences for Success

Phrase cards example

Sentences for Success is a collection of sentence strips for mothers, fathers, older brothers or sisters, carers, teachers, especially EAL and ESOL teachers, or anyone helping a younger child to learn in more than one language. These sentences may be downloaded and laminated for use in many different settings and in many different ways. We hope that they inspire you to create your own sentence strips to give positive feedback and motivate language learners of all ages.
