Places in a City


24 buildings you might see in a town or city. This flashcard set has North American English and British English options.



This set of Places Flashcards depict buildings you see around town or in the city, along with one key item as a hint.

The extra picture in the corner makes the context clear without using words. For example, instead of a B-A-N-K sign, the flashcard uses a picture of money.

Encourage students to use these extra vocabulary words when playing guessing games.

American English / British English

  • apartment building / block of flats
  • gas station / petrol station
  • ice cream shop / ice-cream parlour
  • jewelry store / jewellery store
  • movie theater / movie theatre / cinema –> see note

NOTE: The American English set includes a duplicate card with two variations: the spelling “movie theatre” is preferred in Canada and “movie theater” is used in the US. Since I’m not sure which term Australians and New Zealanders prefer, I added both cinema and movie theatre to the British English set.

    Thank you for making flash cards with no words on them! It is very hard to find good quality flash cards for teaching languages other than English.
