Conditionals and Reported Speech - Tense Changes in Reported Speech


This video covers all the tense changes that are required 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 looked at lesson plans and tying into them the different tenses, as well as the straight arrow lesson planning method. We looked at the three different stages of Engage, Study and Activate, and their ordering as well as potential classroom activities associated with them. On top of this, we are looking at the characteristics of good lesson plans.This unit is primarily concerned with the present tense and the four parts of it. When to use each aspect of the present tense is a major difficulty for many English students. Learning to differentiate between each form of the present tense and the time to use each one has been a valuable lesson as although i knew when to use each one i was unable to express why.
