Taboo is a great game to help increase your communication skills in a foreign language.

The main idea is people have to guess a word eg ‘bones’ but the person explaining the word can not mention the ‘Taboo’ words such as break, skeleton, broken, dog or bones.

Sets of Taboo are available freely online, in lots of different languages. Print off a set, cut up the cards and play with a friend, or your family! If alone, you can turn it into a writing exercise and write a description of the Taboo word instead.

Being able to talk something in a foreign language when you don’t know a specific word is a very useful skill to have.
