Writeacher, I need your help to find exercises on the following grammar topics:

1) Defining and non-defining relative clauses.
(e.g. two sentences to combine ...)
2) Wish (+ simple past, past perfect, would + inf.)
3)Indirect speech (reporting verbs such as apologize, remind, offer, agree, promise, urge, ask, make etc.)
4) Verbs followed by the infinitive/gerund.

As you have a great teaching experience, I really hope you can help me. I'm also looking for a reading comprehension (with questions) to be included at the end of the grammar exercises.

  1. Writeacher

    Here are some webpages that have explanations and quizzes/exercises about relative clauses (which are also called adjective clauses):
    http://teachro.publiccomputingservices.org/grammarpractice/clause/subadj.htm

    http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/clauses.htm#independent
    The quiz for these is at the bottom of this webpage.

    (Essential & non-essential = restrictive & non-restrictive)

    And the first three links here are perfect:
    http://www.google.com/webhp?rlz=1C1GGGE_enUS379US379&sourceid=chrome-instant&ix=seb&ie=UTF-8&ion=1#hl=en&rlz=1C1GGGE_enUS379US379&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=essential%20non-essential%20clauses&oq=&aq=&aqi=&aql=&gs_l=&pbx=1&fp=9b0c83a130f3bca0&ix=seb&ion=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=1366&bih=643

    Here is a whole page on combining sentences:
    http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/combining_skills.htm

  2. Writeacher

    Direct and indirect speech:

    http://www.google.com/webhp?rlz=1C1GGGE_enUS379US379&sourceid=chrome-instant&ix=seb&ie=UTF-8&ion=1#hl=en&rlz=1C1GGGE_enUS379US379&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=grammar%20exercises%20indirect%20and%20direct%20speech&oq=&aq=&aqi=&aql=&gs_l=&pbx=1&fp=9b0c83a130f3bca0&ix=seb&ion=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=1366&bih=643

    There are many good webpages among those search results. Check 'em all out!

  3. Writeacher

    Infinitive and gerund phrases are dealt with here:
    http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/phrases.htm#infinitive
    And there's a good quiz at the bottom of the page.

    http://teachro.publiccomputingservices.org/grammarpractice/verbalsnav.htm
    Here, too.
