ESOL: ESOL Writing: sentence focus (punctuation and grammar), ESOL Writing

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: Handout or guide, Worksheet or assignment

Editor’s note
Updated Sept 17. Errors corrected and minor layout changes.

A handout and exercise sheets for using direct and reported speech. Gives several example of each and the exercises work by switching the same message between direct and reported speech.

I have used this as a speaking/listing exercise as well as writing for grammar/punctuation. Target group is really L1 /L2 but can work well with high E3 too.
