In this task you will have to describe, using specific vocabulary, regular duties for a certain job but don't give the job name. Your colleagues will guess, therefore be specific but also tricky! You can refer to real people most of you are familiar with.
Eg. She works at our university. She types courses for students. She receives the professors' manuscripts and evaluates their complexity according to the number of pages, charts and graphics and then gives an estimate of the time necessary for typing them. The first printing offers the professor an overview of the course and he/she can make all the alterations that they consider necessary. Then she corrects all the errors and makes all the other necessary changes in order to give an attractive and well balanced look to each page. She turns the last printing into a matrix, which is then multiplied into the hundreds of copies you can buy and learn from.
Can you guess who the person is and what her job is?
