    Topic: Reported Speech(5-6 minutes)

    () In reporting what we have heard from another person, we usually do not quote the speakers exact words as with direct speech. We normally use reported speech or indirect speech.

    Ex. I am sewing T-Shirts. He said that he was sewing T-Shirts.

    T T The basic rules for backshift when transforming direct speech into reported speech are:

    Direct Speech Reported Speech

    Simple Present ex. Paints Simple Past ex. Painted

    Present Progressive ex. am printing Past Progressive ex. was printing

    Simple Past ex. printed; Present Perfect ex. has/have colored; Past Perfect ex. had colored

    Past Perfect Simple ex. had colored

    Past Progressive ex. was sewing;

    Present Perfect Progressive ex. have been stitching; Past Perfect Progressive ex. had been stitching

    Past Perfect Progressive ex. had been stitching

    Future I (going to) was / were going to

    Remember: An introductory clause is added at the beginning of the sentence highlighting who the

    speaker is. Examples:
