1. Divide the students in pairs.
2. Ask each pair to write down an advertisement of a product without mentioning it.
3. Pairs exchange their advertisements. They have to guess the product and name it at the top of the list.

Something special

1. Ask each student to write down one interesting (present) fact about him or herself (an unusual hobby, habit, job, possession, ability, disability) that he or she would be willing to talk about: I go bird-watching every weekend. I only eat natural foods.
2. And do the same yourself. Then you and individual students present your topics, talk about them briefly, and answer questions.
