Conditionals and Reported Speech - Backshifting Places
There are certain words that need backshifting when using reported speech. In this video we look at backshifting places in reported speech. This video is specifically aimed at teaching reported speech in an ESL setting.
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
In this unit, we covered pronunciation and phonology which was one of the more difficult lessons so far for me. I learnt the differences between stress and intonation. Along with the phonemic symbols and how they help students to know how to pronounce a certain word. I also learnt about articulation and the difference between the manner and place or articulation.In unit 16 we get information about conditionals and reported speech and take a close look at the different forms of conditional sentences. The Unit also outlines use and structure of the conditionals and provides different ideas for teaching in your classroom. It also looks at some details about reported speech and how direct speech can be changed into reported.
