This week we looked at how to report what somebody said (the structure is known as reported or indirect speech).  Here are a couple of interactive exercises from the 3rd Edition English File Intermediate book for extra practice:  click here and here.  You might also like to refresh your memory by looking at the Powerpoint we did in class to introduce the structures.

You can also watch this ‘Fun English’ video from Youtube which gives examples of indirect speech.

Here’s the link to the website ‘Never Liked it Anyway‘ that we saw in class.  Don’t forget to look at the ‘Tell it’ section where you can find out about other people’s finished relationships and find examples of reported speech in context.  Enjoy the gossip.
