Reported Speech Memory Game

Hopefully, this will be useful for you as a quick solution for practice or time-filling activity in an upper-intermediate (perhaps even intermediate) adult learner setting. The title is self-explanatory. Mix and place cards face down in the fashion of a regular, old-fashioned memory game. Have the student pull two at the same time and try to match the 'active speech card' to its corresponding 'reported speech card'. Have fun! For an easier version: go ahead and place cards on both ends of desk or table and have students match the correct cards. Lastly, an active version: alternatively stick them up around your board or classroom and have student/s search for the proper matching pairs.
