Rules of direct speech

1. Speech marks (" ") are used to show what is spoken aloud by a character.

E.g. "Hello. How are you?" said Billy.

2. You start the speech marks before the first word spoken.

E.g. He walked out and said, "Good to see you."

3. You close the speech marks after the last word they speak not at the end of each sentence.
