DISCUSSION & MOVIE QUOTES
The worksheet starts with a short discussion about the types of movies students like. Next, they move to reading some famous quotes and they have to match them with movie titles. To extend a bit this activity, ask them whether they remember any of these films and what they were about. It’s up to you (and your students’ willingness to speak) how much time you spend on this activity.
Next, students get a table which presents reporting verbs and the structures we use with them. Their task is to rewrite the quotes using verbs in brackets. You can divide your students into pairs or groups as they have to rewrite as many as ten quotes. Then, you can check the answers together.
On top of that, there is a semi-controlled production task where students need to be a bit creative and come up with some original celebrity quotes. First, they write down a name of a famous person (politician, actress, singer, model, etc.) under each bubble. Then, they exchange their handouts and write what these famous people could say. Finally, they get the handouts back from their partners and report what the celebrities said using reporting verbs where possible.
