I have had a display called "Celebrity LOTE Speaker of the Month" where I have showcased a famous person who speaks at least one language other than his / her native tongue. I put a little bit in French about the person using language the students have learned, plus some trivia about the person in English. Some good examples are Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Michael Schumacher, all of whom speak several languages. It takes a bit of time and research but I have found that the students are genuinely interested in the fact that these people speak other languages.
