English for all

Today's focus is on speech punctuation and inverted commas.

Inverted commas are placed around direct speech to show what  a person is saying.

  • Direct speech ( or what is being said )should be sandwiched between inverted commas
  • There needs to be a comma, full stop, question or  exclamation mark  before the closing inverted comma.
  • Capital letters should be used at the start of sentences.
  • A new line should always be started for a new speaker.

Watch the following video clip and complete activities 1 and 2:
