Taboo. Intermediate Advanced Quiz. TEFL. ESL.


This TEFL Classroom activity "TABOO." A fun activity that helps enhance upcoming vocab and it's a hoot to experience!

To learn this ESL activity the teacher first divides the class into two groups. The tutor then chooses a number from 1 to 10. Whichever group guesses the proper number should get to go 1st.

Bring 1 of the students up to the blackboard. Turn the student so that his/her back actually faces the chalkboard / whiteboard.

The teacher composes the Key word on the chalkboard. For this instance I say that the Keyword "SPIDER MAN."

Spider man will now become TABOO. None of the TEFL students can say this word. 

Below any Keyword the ESL instructor then generates a few other key phrases that are additionally Taboo. Which means ESL pupils cannot mention these 3 sub key terms either.

For this illustration the teacher would write three words that your pupils cannot mention, because doing so gives away the main keyword.

The three words under the primary keyword/taboo word shall be:

Peter Parker.



The blackboard / whiteboard will appear like this:


Word 1 - Word 2 - Word 3.

The two ESL groups cannot say any of the written text in the above list. Also, cannot create any movements to aid the ESL student with his/her back to the board.

When the teacher says, "Begin" the 1st group will get a couple of minutes to help the ESL student guess this keyword. The TEFL students may give clues like these:

"He's male."

"The person has some sort of bug on his shirt."

"The guy has a girlfriend."

"The person wears some sort of light blue and red outfit."

"Sometimes the guy battles Venom, Sandman as well as the Green Goblin."

"The person has got his well-known comic."

"This bug on his upper body possesses 8 legs."

"The person ended up being bit by some sort of radio energetic bug and it made the boy unique."

If perhaps any of the ESL pupils utter one of the Taboo terms, his/her team cannot get a point. In case your pupil with his back turned to the board says, "Spider man" - his/her squad get one point.

After this group gets the point or time runs out; the groups will change. If you teach English abroad it's one of the best ESL games/quizzes in which you can easily play.  It's pleasurable and this helps to strengthen and teach the English language. Plus on top of this, the individuals have a good time. Even when they are studying ESL.
