Procedure (68-105 minutes)
Teacher goes through the objectives with the class to make sure everyone understands what they can expect to achieve in this lesson. T divides the class into two or three teams (according to the number of attendants). Each team will brainstorm a list of famous companies around the world. They are allowed only one company per country. They will be allowed to use internet on their phones to check the company's origin/country. T elicits a company and a country from each team, and write them on the board. Teams can only name a country or a company that has not yet been given. The last team to give a company, after the others have run out of ideas, is the winner. T elicits from the class the meaning of "entrepreneur". If they can't get it, T asks a couple of CCQs, like Is he creative or not? Did he start a new successful business? Next, T shows them a slide for two famous entrepreneurs, asking them about famous entrepreneurs from Egypt.
