I made this grid (based on the retrieval grid idea) to help my IGCSE English as a 2nd language class focus on their accuracy and range of grammatical structures and vocabulary before their Speaking exams. We used the grid to play a game: in pairs, students chose a square and produced a sentence on an agreed topic. The rest of the class have to say whether they think the grammar structure has been used accurately or not. My students: “Miss, I hate this game! Can I have another go?”

It can be used to expand vocabulary too - students can generate their own vocabulary on a topic, decide how sophisticated it is and therefore how many marks should be given, and fill in their own grid to play in pairs.

Print off the grids and laminate them or project them onto a whiteboard.

While I used this for EAL students, it could equally be used in MFL classes. The game could easily be adapted for writing, too.
