materials:a photocopy including pictures of famous people taken usually from book-covers.
My copy includes B.Dylan,F.Kafka,G.Orwell,Christie Brown,S.Hawking.
On the board you write a number of occupations including the right ones plus "mafia boss","serial killer" etc as distractors.The students then have to work out which occupation goes with each photo and justify their answer.I've used it successfully with different levels ranging from intermediate to students sitting the CPE.
Modal verbs could also be practised in this way.
It's amazing what students reckon of F.Kafka! Michael Pozantzis Athens,Greece
