Module 12

Interview report back

Activity 1:

To interact and understand and use direct and indirect speech orally and in writing

[lo 2.2, 6.3]

In this activity you will see how the rules one learns and practises in class are relevant in our daily lives: an interviewer uses direct speech while interviewing someone and then in the report back, the interviewee’s words are in indirect speech.

In fact, have you ever thought about the fact that every time you tell your friend or parents or anyone anything that anyone has told you, you are using indirect speech as you learnt it at school!

Oral:

You are now going to assume the role of interviewer . Consider all the talented learners and educators you come into contact with every day. Choose someone from your school and interview him or her on how he or she discovered and developed his or her talents.

Write the questions you want to ask your interviewee here. You can also record the response here.

It is now time to share this information with the class. In reporting back this valuable information orally, make sure you are following the rules of indirect speech. Your classmates are going to indicate this on the assessment chart (at the end of the direct and indirect speech test).

The following activity will give you a good idea of your ability to change direct speech into indirect speech in writing.

DIRECT AND INDIRECT SPEECH TEST

Read each postcard and then complete the indirect speech which follows.

Dear Sam

Today is the day I am going to interview Leonard, our star soccer player. I have just completed formulating the questions I am going to ask him. I am looking forward to hearing many interesting things about his rise to stardom.

I shall keep you informed!

Regards

Joe

Sue: Ah! What did he have to say about the interview?

Sam: He wrote ______

Dear Sam

I always shall be thankful for the opportunity I had of interviewing Leonard.

I shall be watching his every move - he is going to go far.

By this time next year, I shall have developed one of my talents too.

Regards

Joe

Direct to Indirect:

Sam: Joe seems to have gained much from the interviewing exercise he had to do.

Sue: Really?

Sam: Yes, he stated ______

ORAL: REPORTED SPEECH ASSESSMENT CHART:

CHANGE Hardly at all Some­times Most times Con­sis­tent­ly
