Movie Quotes Game
Divide the quotes between 4 people in each group. The students work by themselves to turn their quotes into reported speech. Then each member of the group reads their reported speech out loud and the group needs to try to guess the movie. If a person guesses right, 3 points. If no-one knows, give the quote in direct speech. If a person guesses right, one point.
