A language game for students to change direct speech into reported speechSugerencia de uso
1. Download the file and make copies for students.
2. Divide the students into groups of three and give each group a set of direct speech cards and a set of reported speech cards.
3. Ask the students to shuffle each set of cards and spread them out face down on the table in two sets.
4. Players take it in turns to turn over a direct speech card and read what's on the card, e.g. "I like pizza", she said. Then, the player then changes the direct speech into reported speech, e.g. 'She said that she liked pizza'.
5. Next, the player tries to find the sentence by turning over one of the reported speech cards.
6. If the player turns over the corresponding card, the student keeps the pair of cards and has another turn. If the two cards don't match or the player's sentence is not the same as what's on the reported speech card, the player turns the two cards back over, keeping them in the same place.
7. Players must correctly say the reported speech before they try to find the corresponding card. If a player is unable to correctly form the reported speech, the direct speech card is turned back over, and play passes to the next student.
8. The game continues until all the cards have been matched and the student with the most pairs of cards at the end of the game wins.
