I use this a lot when it comes to reviewing. The idea is pinched from Anne Swarbrick who; I believe; pinched it from Norway where English learners regularly test themselves using the 4 proofs of knowledge - you ‘know’ a word in a FL when you can i) pronounce it properly; ii) spell it correctly; iii) translate it into the mother tongue; and iv) use it in a sentence so it makes sense. This is an example from our 6th Grade. The 4 tests are color-coded; and it all works very well with ‘show me’ mini-whiteboards for the students. Feel free to adapt it to any topic; any year group; any language.
