Themed Card Sets

Unread postby MaureenQC » 03 Feb 2013, 20:32

I teach English conversation to adults. Among the various activities that I use to generate conversation are card games: in one, the group members question another member who has drawn the card of a well-known person to identify who he is; in another the group members question another group member who has drawn the card of a job/profession to identify what he is. Both are very successful but I would like to make up other sets like these two. Can anyone suggest other themes for a new set? There are usually about 24-30 students divided into sub-groups of 4-6 depending on their competency (beginner, intermediate, advanced). So I need a good number of cards for a set.

Thanks for any help you give me.
