Each two-sided card has the person's picture and name on the front and personal information on the back. Students walk around the room holding the front facing out so they can read their "own" information on the back and their classmates can see "their" picture and name.

In addition to their numbers unit vocabulary, they get to review other personal information and learn new vocabulary about jobs from why their person is famous. To give their personal information correctly, they have to remember other cultural/linguistic concepts from the unit such as date format (DAY/MONTH/year), years ("one thousand nine hundred sixty-three"), and phone numbers ("two hundred fifty-five, ninety-nine, fifty-eight"). Plus, they get to learn about famous people from our three countries!
While they are interviewing their classmates, the students have to fill out a chart to record their classmates' information. As in the "turistas" activity, the chart guides students in asking the questions and ensures that they have to understand the information they hear.
