Hi everyone,

It won’t make or break your English conversation, but don’t gamble with your grammar – make sure you review the PDF and try some more exercises!

Here is the video that we saw together in class:

For homework, if you’d like a grammar challenge, try these reported speech exercises with mixed tenses:

You can also click on ‘Explanation’ to find a nice, clear explanation of the rules.

Here is an upper-intermediate listening task on the topic of food:

Finally, look at the questions on the final 2 slides of the PDF. Ask someone (or yourself!) these questions, and write a report of their (or your!) answers, using reported speech! For example, ‘Adam said that his favourite food was fish and chips!’ We will share our reports at the start of the next lesson.

Have a good week and let me know if you have any questions or requests,
