Reported Speech

Usage: We use reported speech when we want to report something that someone said.

We Change the verb tenses in the following way

Simple present----------Simple past
simple past-------Past Perfect
Present perfect-------Past Perfect

Here is some practice for you: Report what people said:

“I have read ten books”, my friend told me.

“I may be absent next week”, I told my teacher.

“You should go out more”, my mom told me!

"I told my friends that I had played nintendo when I was young."

“You are late”, the teacher told me.

“I don’t live in Brasilia”, I told my friend.

“I didn’t do my homework”, I told the teacher

“I played nintendo when I was young”, I told my friends.
