Test your learners' phonetic spelling in our phonetic dominoes matching game.

Phonetic dominoes game board

Games are a great way of engaging your learners and teaching them important skills in a fun interactive way. You can use our phonetic dominoes resource as a fun warm-up, filler or cooler activity.

The phonetic dominoes will help your learners to improve their pronunciation of common words used in the English language, helping to develop their confidence and speaking skills.

In total, there are 112 phonetic spellings (8 per A4 sheet) to match and test yourself or your learners with.

If you only have a short time, then print out half of the cards and cut out the dominoes. If you have more time, you can print out and cut out all the domino cards.


Match the phonetic spelling of a word with its real spelling.

How to play:

There are several ways to play phonetic dominoes. Learners can play alone to help them practise their pronunciation in a solo capacity. Alternatively, several learners can play together until one person has used up all their dominoes and is declared the winner!
