Vocabulary Posters for 20 Topics

My printable posters for each ABC letter proved to be popular with my young students, so I decided to also design English vocabulary posters to put on my classroom walls.

English vocabulary poster for ESL students to learn animal names
A vocabulary posters printed on a large A1 paper sheet (594 x 841 mm, 23.4 x 33.1 inches).
I used my huge collection of digital images to make lists of words on various topics and create the vocabulary posters. The image collection allowed me to make 72 printable posters to help my students memorize more than 900 words in 20 topics. The majority of posters feature the essential vocabulary for every English learning student (e.g. food, school supplies, body parts, jobs, clothes, means of transport etc.). Some posters allow expanding students’ vocabulary with non-essential but quite interesting words from such topics as tools, farmer’s tools and machines, construction machinery, insects.


These posters can serve as a great visual aid that helps attract kids’ attention and memorize a lot of new and useful words. This kind of printables make my classroom special for little children who are just starting learning English. A lot of bright and colorful pictures on the walls make them fall in love with learning the foreign language. I use the vocabulary posters for homeschooling purposes as well to teach English to my son at home. He loves learning words with so many cool pictures.

Posters like these bring more fun to learning English and are conducive to passive learning. I often see my little students flock around the posters in the classroom to look at the pictures. Those who already can read in English read those words on the posters, and the next thing you know students already remember many of them even without interacting with the teacher.

So here is the list of topics and samples of my vocabulary posters.

The vocabulary posters are designed to be printed on A3 paper sheets (297 x 420 mm, 11.7 x 16.5 inches). For those who do not have access to an A3 size printer, I created double-A4 versions of my posters (two A4 size sheets to be glued together to make an A3 size poster). A single poster has 14 words. Some words are offered both in American English and British English variations with corresponding marks in the form of flags. Some large topics are covered by multiple posters, the largest being animals vocabulary featured on 8 posters. The posters are stored in high resolution printer-friendly PDF documents. The resolution is high enough to print the posters on bigger A1 size sheets - 594 x 841 mm, 23.4 x 33.1 inches (see a picture above of my son holding one of such large posters). I’ll be publishing individual topic-based blog posts featuring my vocabulary posters in the future. I’ll be adding links to new posts in this article as soon as each new post is published. My fellow EFL and ESL teachers are welcome to buy the whole collection counting more than 70 printable vocabulary posters right now.
