Halloween - ESL Taboo Speaking Game

Halloween - ESL Taboo Speaking Game

Halloween - ESL Taboo Speaking Game Playing TABOO is a great way to get ESL students to speak English and learn a lot of new vocabulary. This game is simple to modify and use with beginners and advanced students alike. In this HALLOWEEN theme version of the game there are 35 playing cards. I've included 2 fun ways to play this fun vocabulary game and both are explained in the instructions. This ESL Taboo game includes the following: How to play classic Taboo (beginner and advanced levels) 35 Taboo game cards to print, laminate, cut out and hook together with a ring Color and black and white versions provided How to play 15 MINUTES MAX - an alternative version of the game 15 MINUTES MAX game board *In the upper left corner there's a spot for you to punch holes in the cards so that you can then attach them with a ring for no prep use every time. Be sure to laminate if at all possible! Object of the game: One player tries to get his teammate to guess the word at the top of a card. The player must give clues, but he can't use any of the Taboo words in his description. The taboo words are written beneath the word at the top of the card. Teams score points for each word successfully guessed. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins. Beginner students should be allowed to use the TABOO words printed on the cards. This will encourage them to use new vocabulary and will help them in forming sentences to use as clues.
