Do your learners struggle with word-finding? Are you looking for a fun and practical tool to boost their expressive language skills? This comprehensive pack of picture cards features all you need to enhance expressive language in a fun and challenging way! Built around useful everyday experiences, it contains a set of 60 large picture cards (17 x 12 cm each) featuring a full-color photo on the front and a set of targeted questions on the back of each card – alongside answer notes for each question, to save you valuable preparation time!
A carefully chosen everyday item depicted on each card provides the starting point for a set of questions that target a wide range of skills and encourage your learner to think and talk about the item on the picture from several angles. The questions progressively prompt your learner to:
- provide some key information about the item depicted on the card
- briefly describe the item on the card
- make comparisons
- put words in categories
- come up with words that are closely related
- make logical inferences
Boost your learners’ expressive language skills and help them master this all-important area of language development. Expressive language is significant as it enables them to describe their needs and desires, express their thoughts and ideas, support their views with clear arguments, develop the ability to express themselves in writing and eventually interact effectively with other people.
The pack comprises 60 printable double-sided picture cards and 720 targeted questions, all accompanied by answer notes. It also includes a part that is specially designed for tablets, so that the cards can also be used autonomously.

I have found this a useful addition both as an iPad and printed tool. I like using it as a PACE/barrier task and adjust the questions accordingly. The different formats are helpful to allow different patterns of use.
Fantastic resource and easy to use. Good questions for higher cognitive thinking as an increase in task complexity.
Hi Upbility Team, just wanted to let you that the picture cards Getting it Right are a great way to get my students to discuss orally about the pictures. Most of my students struggle with motor skills i.e.: handwriting, we have found discussion to be very beneficial because students are able to express themselves verbally. The questions given also helps with prompting and this helps students to give their answers without feeling their answer may be wrong. As always I have found your resources very valuable. Thankyou Georgia.
Good layout but some of the pictures were a little odd for us.
Good resource. Disappointed that I can't save it into my own resource file though. Can only download it (over and over - up to 100 times) but I don't really 'own' it .. its more like a rental system.
