The game TABOO is a great way to improve vocabulary and fluency. The idea of the game (simplified rules that I use in class) is that one student has a card with a word which his/her classmates have to identify. The player with the card can only use speech to describe this word, and may not use key words listed on the card - they are TABOO! If you use the actual game, you will probably have to go through the cards first and select them for the level of your group; or you can make your own cards, listing taboo words according to the level and culture of your students. If you divide your class into two teams the competition gets really fierce!
