Countries & nationalities - most boring topic ever?

    Should have said - I have searched the resources section on here and on various other websites, but nearly everything out there seems to be either World Cup 2010-related or to do with researching different French-speaking countries, which I already intend to do in a few lessons when I've managed to book an IT room. For the next 3 lessons we're in our ordinary classroom, I'll be using one of these to prepare them for their research task but I still have to fill the other 2 lessons!

    Could you do something about stereotypes of different nationalities as something extra to do? Or do the lessons have to be purely language based?

    Do a general knowledge quiz - match up the capitals, nationalities, typical foods, languages spoken, famous sportsmen, etc etc. If you have access to a computer suite, how about this: http://www.europe.learningtogether.net/ My Y9s loved it.

    Why not do something a bit different with this unit - intercultural understanding for intercultural understanding's sake. Use it as an opportunity to improve the students' knowledge of other countries and languages. Interesting point - are nationality words always the same as the language words for each country? If not, why not?
