This lesson was great, as always…

Ana Paula

I don’t agree with the answer of the 8th question of the quiz. ” Rosaline said she would be right back”. Wouldn’t it be ‘ Rasaline said THAT she wolud be right back”

Jorge

    You’d be right, but it’s okay to leave out the “that”.

Hi Alex,
I have a question
Could I say the reported speech in the present?
For example:
Maria: It’s hot
Maria said to me that it’s hot

or in the future

Maria: I’m going to Mexico tomorrow
Maria said to me that she’s going to Mexico tomorrow.

Samantha

    Hi Samantha,

    The tense in reported speech is one tense back in time from the tense in Quoted speech.
    e.g;
    Maria: it is hot.
    Reported: Maria said to me that it was hot.

    Maria: I am going to Mexico tomorrow.
    Reported: Maria said to me that she was going to Mexico tomorrow.

    However, often if the speaker is reporting something soon after it has been said, there is no change in the verb tense. This is also true if the reported statement is a general truth.
    e.g;
    Quoted: “The capital of Canada is Ottawa.”

    Reported: Alex said that the capital of Canada is Ottawa.
    :)

      yes it is, we have to move back one tense. how ever, we have to convert:” tomorrow” to ” the next/following day” also when we use reported speech. in conclusion, all the adverb of time need to be chaged to the write form. see ya!

I’m from Sri Lanka. Thanks a lot Alex. These English lessons are great for me. I’d also like to ask you a question.
When we ask a question to know, what somebody is doing. Like schooling, doing a job etc. In this type of question, what’s the tense, we should use ? Present simple or Present progressive. As a eg- 1. What do you do? 2. What are you doing?

Rosalinde: “I’ll be right back.”
Rosalinde said she would be right back.
why she said??? if she talk to me directly

Profile photo of leobsas2000 leobsas2000

    Hi Leo,
    If Rosalinde had talked to you directly, the third answer would have to be: “Rosalinde told ME she would be right back.”
    So, the first option is the only one that is correct.

    I hope I could help !!!

    Best wishes!

Profile photo of obby obby

    Hi Obby, what I know about those adjectives is that we add (LY) to the adjectives to describe how a person did, does or is doing something (an action) for example: I always do my homework carefully and that is why I always get good grades. (In this example I am using the Manner adverb to describe how I do something, like the way I do something)

    I love being a careful person.( in this 2nd example I am describing the person I am with an adjective)

ABRAR

Hi Alex, thanks for the lesson! I wanted to ask if there is a difference in meaning between “I like the way you speak” and “I like the way you talk”, and if they both are correct. I know that “to speak” is used when one person is speaking and the others are listening, and “to talk” is used when there is a conversation taking place between two people or more.

Another confusing thing is that I always thought it is correct to say to speak WITH and to talk TO, but very often I hear people say, “May I speak to…” or “talk with”. So which one is correct or what does it depend on if these prepositions are interchangeable? Please, help me understand! Thanks!

Rosalinde said me she would be right back.
Rosalinde told she would be right back.
Rosalinde told to me that she would be right back.

Hi Teacher Alex,
How have you been?

I’m a big fan of you…absolutely you are a good Teacher.

I would like to confirm with you about these phrases below.

When we have a statement in the present we need to report this in the past, Don’t we?

I know that there is no change if we report something that is truth, however I had this doubt about these sentences because I’m not sure if these are the truth.

“The unexamined life is not worth living.”

Socrates said me that the unexamined life is not worth living.
Socrates said to me that the unexamined life is not worth living.
Socrates told me that the unexamined life is not worth living.
Socrates said that the unexamined life is not worth living.

I guess that is the correct response for this case is:
Socrates said that the unexamined life was not worth living.

Mahatma Ghandi: “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”

Ghandi said that an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
Ghandi told that an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
Ghandi told me that an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
Ghandi said me that an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

I guess that is the correct response for this case is:
Ghandi said that an eye for an eye made the whole world blind.

Thank you in advance to help me out and if I’m wrong, could you please send me the explanation about that just to understand better all possibility of reported speech.

very well explained, I do have a question though. when do you use “THAT” after tell???? for example, in the second one, I got it correct “Mathilde told me THAT she was worried about the next day exam,however, I didn’t get correct the 6th “ron told me THAT I should show up early” I chose that one, but it wasn’t correct, the right one was: Ron told me I should show up early”. I hope you can explain that.

Dear Alex,thank you for the lesson, it is very usefull! please explain the quiz: Socrates: “The unexamined life is not worth living.”The right answer:Socrates said that the unexamined life is not worth living. The question is why we don’t change the time to past simple here,I don’t quite understand.Thank you in advance!!

10. Lost character, Jack Shepherd: “If we can’t live together, we’re going to die alone.”
***Jack told everybody that if they couldn’t live together, they were going to die alone.
***Jack told me that if they couldn’t live together, they were going to die alone.

Hi Alex, I surprisingly made 10 correct. And it is surpising, coz sentences 3,4,and 7 have their dependent parts in the present simple. Is it because those sentences are the quotations of the famoous people so the they emhpasize some ideas?

Hello I couldn’t understand the 10 question. Please,help me! why Jack told everybody? I think Jack said everybody. Jack gave information to everybody not one person? as you said we use “tell/told” direct but Jack said everybody?!
