"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
