Grammar game for teaching reported speech to ESL/EFL students!





 Threats and Promises and Reported Speech


Match #4:


As well as giving information about the way something was said (yelled, whispered etc.) we can also categorize what was said according to whether it was a threat a promise, an agreement, or a refusal. We often use an infinitive to accomplish this: He refused to . . . , He threatened to. . . , He promised to . . . , He agreed to . . .



Sample of reported speech: Threat.




He threatened to hit him.

She promised to buy pizza for dinner.

He agreed to buy it.

He refused to work.
