You don't say what age they are, but presuming that they are teenage or older you could ask them to imagine that they're in Britain/the States or wherever for a language course. It's the first day and the teacher is giving them info. on the school and the course. Give them a short presentation where you tell them what room their class is in and what floor it's on, starting and finishing times of lessons, what time lunch is and what floor the canteen is on, what floor the Director's office is on if they have problems, which afternoon is free for sport and what sports they can do, what the evening social events are etc.
While they listen they fill a worksheet with the info. If it's dense, they'll probably have to listen more than once.
But you should be able to give all this info within the limits of the language they know at high beginner level.
