ESL - SPRING Vocabulary Taboo Game
Play this ESL SPRING Vocabulary Taboo game and have some fun!

Playing games and having fun is when learning really happens in ESL class. I love to play the game Taboo with my students. ESL taboo is a game that is easy to modify and use with beginners and advanced students alike.

Your students will learn a lot of new and useful vocabulary while playing this fun speaking game.

This ESL SPRING Vocabulary Taboo game includes:

40 different Taboo game cards to create a deck that you will print and cut out for as many teams as you need (black and white + color versions provided). I like to laminate them, punch holes and hook the cards together with a keyring. Talk about years to come of no prep activities!

Game instructions for both beginner and advanced students.

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 those written beneath the word at the top of the card. Teams score points for each word successfully guessed, and the team with the most points wins.
Save for later
