Check out “Business Nightmares” from Tom’s 10-minute talk on ProEnglish!
This activity is inspired by reality TV shows in which an expert comes to a business and gives feedback. Usually, there are big problems in the business and there is a lot of conflict between the show host and the business owner.
The situation: Students own a business (Card A). They have just been on the TV show, and the local newspaper wants to talk interview them about it (Card B). A tries to spin the story so that his/her business can survive!
In this extension, the business owner (A) tells the writer for the local newspaper (B) that he/she is going to sue! A tries to get money out of B based on what B wrote in the article.

The idea is very simple: we open our cafe, but it’s not an ordinary cafe. They serve only crazy food there. And here’s a step by step instruction that will guide you through the project.
