This gibberish voice game is included in the FREE collection of drama games for teenagers (Middle School and High School).
Gibberish is a fun activity to develop pantomime skills and to think about use of vocal tone, pace etc. to tell a story. Gibberish stories is a fantastic voice game.
Students must use their voice in an interesting way to tell a story in gibberish. Start by practicing gibberish with them and lead with an example (gibberish is nonsense language using voice tone to imitate the tone of a lively and exaggerated conversation). It is also a good idea to have students practice their ‘gibberish’ with a partner. Ask them to tell their partner about their favourite movie in gibberish and to focus on exaggerated voice tone, pause and pace to imitate the rhythm of a lively and exaggerated conversation but in nonsense language. Different students will find comfort with different gibberish styles, some may even prefer just clicking sounds.
