We recently had a question put to us about direct and reported speech. Understanding this is important. It is a basic part of grammar in English. So today we run through lots of examples of both types of speech. Although we try not to spend much time on grammar, as you learn this through listening anyway, sometimes it helps some people and we are here to help.

Way back in podcast 213 which is still available in this bundle we talked about the difference between direct and indirect speech. Today we will cover the differences in direct and reported speech with more examples, and we’ve included a simple test with answers in the downloadable transcript.
