The MES online flashcard application is an in-browser app that allows full screen display, has audio, and a few vocabulary building games. (This is a great option for online lessons or to save the time and cost of print versions.)

Mark's Note: I teach all the verbs up through Set 3 only in the present continuous. With Set 3, we have more direct objects and longer phrases than sets 1 and 2, but hopefully the students are getting used to the present continuous at this point.

This set increases up to 15 verbs in this set, so it may take a little longer for the students to learn them all. I teach 'study', 'clean', 'cook', 'draw', 'fight' and 'wait' without objects to help make this easier. 'He's drawing.' Once the students have the vocabulary down, I start adding come direct objects, 'He's drawing a picture.' for example.
