    This resource seems to only include the blank cards to add your words. Is there supposed to be cards included that already have the words printed on them?

      Hi Ainslie. We’re experiencing a technical difficulty with our word walls where the vocabulary list is not populating the cards. We are working on this and apologise for the inconvenience. In the meantime, a default PDF has been uploaded and can be accessed via the Download button or the ‘Select a Download’ section below the resource description. Also, if your subscription level gives you access to Studio, you can create and customise the word list by clicking on the ‘Customise’ button beside the download button. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. We’re more than happy to help!
