Truth, dare, double dare, love, kiss, promise…You may have played and enjoyed this game as a teen.

I stumbled upon this version of Truth or Dare shared by from Yulia in her Discover English Teaching  group the other day, and I loved the idea of using it in the classroom.

I am sure this fun game will work really well with teens.

Yulia kindly agreed to share it here.

How to Play

🗣 The players are grouped together sitting or standing in a circle.

🗣 One player (or the teacher) at a time has a turn to ask another player the question ‘Truth or Dare?’

🗣 The player should choose between Truth or Dare. Choosing neither or both options is not allowed.

🗣 If they choose Truth, they will have to answer any question relating to their life, hobbies, habits, past or any other question. The player must answer the question honestly without any lie.

🗣 If the player chooses Dare, they have to complete a task.

🗣 After the first player’s turn is over, the game may be taken forward and the second player may be asked a question or asked to perform a task.

🗣 The group decides if the answer to the question or task was given/performed correctly or not.

🗣 The game goes on until the group decides to stop the game.

Here are some Truth_or_Dare_questions suggested by Yulia.

You can find these cards with tasks and questions here quite handy or make your own cards for your particular learners and language in focus.*

Alternatively, to make it a more learning rich experience, you may get the playing group to make a list of questions and agree on tasks before they play the game.

    I’m a sucker for new activities. Another one I would like to try in my new classes for this school year. Truth or Dare was a game we played and teenage parties so I do have fond memories of this activity.

  2. Great activity but some of the questions and tasks are a bit tricky. 🙂 I don’t think it can be played with every class (the main problem could be the teacher being present during the game). But as you say, you can create your own sets. 👍

    • Spot on, Hana! The key thing here is to have fun without hurting or embarrassing anyone. It all depends on the level of emotional safety and trust within the group and between you and your kids. Only you know where the limits are:)
