RIP Tina Turner: the Best

Reported Speech

We use reported speech when we say the words of other people. Reported speech is also called indirect speech. 4 important rules to remember when forming the reported speech; 

1- Use a reporting verb (said/told/asked). 
2- Change the tense of the original words. 
3- Change the pronouns (I/you/we/he). 
4- Change the time expression (yesterday/the day before). 

*Be careful when changing statements, questions or orders. Also take care if the phrases are affirmative or negative.
