How to Execute Direct and Indirect Speech Transformation Confidently! | PowerPoint Slides

In our most recent webinar, we are elated to have the highest number of participants with us to learn about direct and Indirect speech transformation. We hope it has been a fruitful session for everyone and we definitely enjoyed having the company of such a lively crowd! Many of you posed excellent questions regarding this section such as:

  • Is there a fixed way of changing certain keywords in the direct speech? For example, if the question has the word ‘yesterday’, is it compulsory to change it to ‘the day before’? If yes, could you provide a list of such words?

  • The question is given in the indirect speech: Mr Koh asked Peter if he had seen Francis going to the canteen. We are supposed to change this to direct speech; so when do we use “Did” as in “Did you see Francis going to the canteen?” and when to use “Have” as in “Have you seen Francis going to the canteen?” .

  • Is it necessary to include “that” when changing from direct speech to indirect speech? Example, Mrs Tan said that they were late or Mrs Tan said they were late.

For those of you who have missed it, we are sharing with you the slides that were used for the webinar today. In the month of May, we will not be holding a webinar but do continue to look out for other tips in our weekly blog posts.

Little ones and parents love our online sessions
But don’t take our word for it

“Lil but Mighty webinars open up to a world of learning opportunities for Kyler.

Every live presentation comes with beautiful visuals that young learners could easily connect with. The participatory approach of the webinars engages Kyler with direct interactions where his questions were acknowledged and answered on the spot. There will also be questions pose by Mrs Chew after every chunk of content delivery to check on students’ understanding before moving on to the next section.

Useful tips are highlighted and reiterated throughout the webinars. Mrs Chew uses fun acronyms that makes it much easier to remember and Kyler could apply what he has learn onto his school work.

With this versatile e-learning format, it allows Kyler to gain access to an online archive when we need to revise for examination.

Thank you for going the extra mile to help Kyler find success.”

— CANDY W, PARENT OF KYLER, PRIMARY 6, BUKIT PANJANG PRIMARY SCHOOL

With our vision to build a community of learners in mind, Lil’ but Mighty launched LBMchat, a new monthly webinar feature this year. During the live webinar, we focus on teaching a strategy or addressing common misconceptions that children may have regarding English. The best part is the interaction that the live webinar provides: We are able to chat with our participants through the chat window available and viewers can even ask questions to clarify doubts related to the topic as we go along! If you have missed a certain part of the webinar or wish to watch the video again, a replay of the video is available after the session. How exciting is that? (:
