Conditionals and Reported Speech - Reported Speech Overview


This video is a review of the reported speech in the English language. We take a look at the necessary changes in terms of place, time and tense necessary. 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.

Overall this section is good. I feel like the questions about best order for lesson segments is rather subjective without more information as you could make them work in many different ways. For example you could do a gap-fill activity before or after highlighting the contracted form of the structure depending on that specific structure concept the gap fill activity covers.I particularly found the parts explaining the differences between the past continuous, the past perfect and the past perfect continuous in a clearer manner than I am accustomed to particularly useful and refreshing. Based on my teaching experience, learners give up on the past perfect continuous tense too easily, although they are quick to insist that they want to learn it.
