Updated 07/06/2023. Some new tricky rebus puzzles with answers that are suitable for adults and advanced learners have been added (sheet 20).

These picture puzzles are an invigorating hobby for proficient ESL learners. They promote students to think imaginatively and provide a delightful cognitive exercise.

Initially, students may find it quite hard to find them but once they get the idea of handing out the rebus puzzles, they will find it much easier. It is the best way to introduce the concept before giving examples on the board, like the letter U and a drawing of a heart, an eye drawing, space invaders, and “I love you” made in China.

Sometimes, if a student or team has an answer, they can write and run it up on the board themselves. It works well to draw 12 blank rectangles on the board and have the students work together. You can also make it an exercise for the class or group and give them harder clues if needed.

Rebus puzzle definition

Items, correspondences, digits, or symbols signify and convey sounds and terms. A rebus denotes an illustration of terms, expressions, sounds, or syllables through pictures. What is a rebus enigma?

Sunflowers adore blooming under the warm rays of the sun, creating a beautiful combination of colors that can be likened to a simple yet captivating work of art. While pictures can convey emotions and messages, they cannot fully capture the depth of meaning that words can express. This concept is derived from the Latin expression “Rebus sed verbis, Non” which means “Things not by words, but by means of things.”

They used objects and pictures that sounded similar to their family names to show ownership of things and help illiterate people understand who they belonged to. During medieval times, knights and noblemen used coats of arms to show their family lineage. Rebus puzzles have been around for a long time.

Looking back even further, Ancient Egyptian writing or hieroglyphs were also interpreted in a rebus style manner.

During the Edo period in Japan, they also came into use after a long period. Similarly, during the Edo period, rebuses became a popular and fun activity in France in the 16th century, further spreading around Europe before that century.
