Instructions: In groups of three students (2 player + 1 referee) or five (2 teams of two players and one referee), players take turn in casting the dice. Whichever case the player/team reach based on their dice score, they will have 30 seconds to translate the relative sentence(s) into French orally. The referee will then tell the players (with the help of the answer sheet) if their translation is correct. If the translation is correct they will have another go and casting the dice and will advance to the next case where they will have to translate the next sentence and so on. However, if their translation isn’t correct, the referee will read to them the right version twice in order for the players to attempt to memorize it for the next round when they will have another go. After the opponents’ turn the player will have another chance at casting the dice; if they answer the question they originally got wrong correct. The person who is closer to the finishing line ten minutes into the game will win.
I do a round in writing (students write on miniwhiteboards or iPads) then one or two orally changing partners each time. Students love it but adequate prep essential.
