    For our Language practice course we will have to make a small presentation (about 15-20 minutes long) with handout on some topic (anything) that is related to Britain, Ireland, America or Australia, or perhaps somewhere else where English is spoken. It should also involve the audience too (like we could make some quiz about 'did you know this or that about the topic?'). The girl I have to work with and I just can't find the exact topic, so can you think of something that would be useful for us?

    Sorry for being totally off-topic, and thanks for any kind of ideas!

    We did that too, a whole quiz with a lot of exercises like questions, crossword puzzle, stuff like that, and at the end there was Skid Row's Monkey Business, first they had the lyrics with some gaps and they had to find out what words were missing. Then we checked it by listening to the song :D

    ah that's good stuff, but as for the presentation, I don't know, i once skived a presentation at college because I hate them so muchm and it's not natural and pointless.

    Schnitzels are alright with mushroom sauce and that. Cant beat a bumper fried breakfast though when you really need one. Compare that to croissants or ham, cheese and dry bread that smells like farts. You know it makes sense

    That girl looks half-dead, like she's been skipping breakfast all her life.
