Direct and Reported Speech (using 'The Price of Love' by White Lies)

(0)
This grammar unit uses the song ‘The Price of Love’ by White Lies (can be listened to on YouTube) to introduce and practice: punctuating direct speech turn direct speech into reported / indirect speech The song allows the students to become ‘detectives’ who have to figure out which characters are speaking in the lyrics (the speaker / husband, the kidnapper, or the wife), and students should use the lyrics to put together the mystery of who kidnapped who and what the situation is. The song also makes grammar more accessible, memorable and fun to teach. The package consists of: Worskheet with song lyrics (without speech marks) and an answer key. Accompayning PowerPoint (which I have converted into a PDF that you can use on any device - you do not need PowerPoint to use it), and it will look great on any screen). Enjoy!

This activity uses the clever and musically brilliant song 'The Price of Love' by White Lies to teach students about direct and reported speech. You will need to find the song 'The Price of Love' by White Lies on YouTube for the lesson to work, but otherwise the lesson is complete with a PPT (in PDF format) and a worksheet (with Answer Key) to teach the entire unit. Enjoy!
