Reported speech

We spend our lives reporting what other people have said to us, our mum, our teachers, our friends, the president of Catalonia, our tutor, etc.
Can you transform these direct speech sentences into reported speech?
How many changes do you need to make?
It works exactly the same as Catalan and Spanish.
Good luck!


Amanda: "I'm visiting my brother in Paris next Friday."


Police officer: "Did you see any stranger coming into this building yesterday?"

Police officer: "Where did you go after the explosion?"


Teacher: "Tell me the truth."

Mum: "Don't come back after midnight."

Make a list of all the changes:

  • Statements  (Reporting verb: _____________ / _____________)

  • Questions  (Reporting verb: _____________ )
  1. The same changes as statements

  • Commands  (Reporting verb: _____________ / _____________)
