Emotional Reported Speech
This is a game to pracice reported speech. Students have to take one "tell-card" and one "adverb" card and then say one or two sentences (about what is written on the card) emotionally, trying to express the feeling of the adverb even if the meaning and the emotion don't match. Then another student guesses the emotion and reports what has been said with the apropriate adverb. e.g. "Fiona furiously said that her favourite food was ice-cream." You'll have a good laugh playing the game. The cards have been taken from the textbook "Grammar games and activities for teachers" by P. Watcyn-Jones and combined into one game.
