Teaching Reporting Verbs

Teaching Reporting Verbs.
After having introduced the basic reported verbs: ask, say and tell, I ask my students to write about 10 personal questions they will be able to ask me. Students love asking personal questions to their teachers! I put the questions on the board and then divide the class into 2 groups and make the first group leave and wait outside. The first group members take turns in asking me the prepared questions and write down my answers. Now, they leave and the second group does the same thing. However, what they do not know is that I am honest with one group and give correct answers, but lie to the other. It's a good idea not to tell them beforehand. When the second group is ready I ask the group outside in and tell the students to pair off as 1st and 2nd group partners....
