To practise speech punctuation rules

In this lesson, we will revise the rules for accurately punctuating speech, when speech comes at the start of a sentence. We will revise the correct terminology and the positive effect that speech punctuation has on a reader's ability to read a piece of writing. We will then practise writing our own speech sentences with correct punctuation.
