Reported speech gapfill exercise

 

Scroll down for exercise

Fill in the gaps reporting the direct speech shown in red. Be careful with pronouns and adverbs as well as verb tenses! Do not use any short forms. There may be alternative ways of expressing adverbs, e.g. the next day, the following day, the day after, etc.

Click on the "c" button to check your answer. *Asterisks* will appear around the word or phrase if it is right. If it isn't right, the incorrect part of your answer will be replaced by lines. The number of lines corresponds to the number of letters AND spaces between words. 

In desperation you can click the 'show answers' button after the exercise.

This exercise was made using the software materials available on the Makers website at Swarthmore.
