This useful activity allows the teacher to practice the sentences used to describe people in general by talking about their job, their favourite food or the place where they live.
Moreover, it gives the students the opportunity to practice the speaking skill by asking questions about famous people which match the answer they are given in the first exercise.
In the second one they have to fill in the gaps with the information from the previous exercise, so they get a complete desciption of these people.
Finally, as they have a sample of how to describe people they are suggested to describe themselves.
In this way they are the centre of their own learning, in which the focus-practice-production tecnhique has been used.
