Multimodal analysis of MFL board game: Konzett 2015

This paper describes how a small group of students in a foreign language classroom manage the interactional task of orally assessing the correctness of verb forms while playing a board game aimed at revising verb conjugation . In their interaction, the students orient to the institutional context of this activity as a language learning exercise by adhering to the rules of the game and by diligently attending to the production of g rammatically correct verb forms. One rule of the game states that the students must decide as a group if the verb form s produced are correct or not. As a consequence, there are recurring ‘assessment moments’ in the game, at which the students are required to make a joint decision over the correctness of the grammatical form. As the data shows, the students manage to achieve this int eractional task , taking great care to avoid potential epistemic status incongruences within the group . They do this by exploit ing a fine - tuned and economically applied repertoire of multimodal resources , including the ritual of the board game and , crucially, the use of the dice . Th e latter turns out to be an extremely versatile tool used to complete interactional sequences, manage turn transition, ratify moves in the game and accomplish peer - assessment.
