How Taboo Game Can Help You Learn Russian

Let's be honest. Learning a foreign language can get you bored. So why not make it fun? Taboo is a great game which you can play to improve your speaking skills, increase your vocabulary and have fun at the time whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner.

Instructions for Beginners
If you are just a beginner, you might find it quite difficult to explain the Guess-word without using the Taboo-words. So instead, you want to use all these Taboo-words to explain the Guess-word. It will significantly increase your vocabulary and improve your speaking skills. And when you are ready, try to play this game with the traditional rules.

For example, if the Guess-word is "книга" and the Taboo-words are "читать, знание, страница, библиотека, писать", then you might explain it this way: "В ней много страниц, её можно взять в библиотеке".

Instructions for Advanced Level Learners
You have to explain the Guess-word to your team members without using the Taboo-words. No form or part of any words on the card can be used. Teams take turns, and every turn lasts for a minute.

For example, if the Guess-word is "книга" and the Taboo-words are "читать, знание, страница, библиотека, писать", then you might explain it this way: "Согласно известной русской поговорке, это лучший подарок".
