"I love these card sets by ColorCards - they are excellent photos using people of all ages… Used with the pictures it is a good activity and enjoyed by all the pupils I tried it with. It promotes listening, attention and auditory processing and can also be used for verbs and general vocabulary." — NAPLIC Newsletter

"I have found them extremely useful. The children were motivated by the pictures and enjoyed discriminating the sounds… I would recommend them as a valuable listening resource … and certainly the CD format is much easier to present than the tape." — Independent Talking Points
