We have created what we call at our school Questions Personelles to go with every unit of study. As a result, it is difficult to always have the time to ask every individual student the series of questions so that they get a chance to answer all of them prior to the final exam.These range from Combien de personnes est-ce qu'il y a dans ta famille? In order to do this, I break the class into 2 sections and within those 2 section, they are again broken up into the "Interviewer" and the "Interviewee".We set-up the desks in 2 rows with the "Interviewers" facing me and the "Interviewees" with their backs to me.
So, the person on an end of a row will continue on to the next row of tables, still in the "Interviewee" position.
As time goes by, I ask them to not look at their sheet when they start to feel confident about answering, sometimes this requires a little coaxing, but I remind them that they cannot use it for the oral exam so they may as well start to get used to that.
Step 2: Reconfigure the desks in the classroom into a long line.
The male superheroes will sit on one side and the female characters on the other. (e.g., 30 students—15 male & 15 female cards) Procedure Step 1: Divide the class into small groups.

When the timer went off, the interviewers rotated to the next person and asked their questions again.
During this time, I was circulating around the room & trying to listen to each group for a few seconds.
The "Interviewers" begin asking the questions while the "Interviewees" answer.
