Reported Speech:Reported Questions (+ one more amazing song!!!)

Hello,dear learners!
The second lesson is about reported questions. Lesson #1 is here.
Reported questions are usually introduced with the verbs ask, wonder,want to know , etc.
He asked when Ann would come back.
I wonder if it's possible to book a table for Saturday.

  •  In the reported questions we use affirmative word order. We put a full stop "." instead of the question mark "?"  :

Direct question:                                     What countries have you been to?
Reported questions :        They asked me what countries I had been to.
Direct question :                                          Do you like London?
Reported question:          They wanted to know if I liked London.

  • The verb tenses,pronouns,time expressions should be changed as in statements.
  • When the direct question begins with the auxiliary verb (do, did, have, had, can, will, etc.) we use words if or whether to report the question:

English for Children :March (Ideas for Teachers)

Hello, dear teachers!
If you want to talk  with your little students about March,you can use some of my ideas. I'm happy to share them with you.
So, you may start with the brainstorm activity: tell your students that you are going to discuss the topic March and show them two pictures : a picture of a lion and a sheep:

Ask your students how  these pictures can be connected with the theme of the lesson. Then show them this poster with the wellknown English proverb. And ask them how they understand these words.

"The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by. 
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here."
