In our most recent webinar, we are elated to have the highest number of participants with us to learn about direct and Indirect speech transformation. We hope it has been a fruitful session for everyone and we definitely enjoyed having the company of such a lively crowd! Many of you posed excellent questions regarding this section such as:
Is there a fixed way of changing certain keywords in the direct speech? For example, if the question has the word ‘yesterday’, is it compulsory to change it to ‘the day before’? If yes, could you provide a list of such words?
The question is given in the indirect speech: Mr Koh asked Peter if he had seen Francis going to the canteen. We are supposed to change this to direct speech; so when do we use “Did” as in “Did you see Francis going to the canteen?” and when to use “Have” as in “Have you seen Francis going to the canteen?” .
Is it necessary to include “that” when changing from direct speech to indirect speech? Example, Mrs Tan said that they were late or Mrs Tan said they were late.
For those of you who have missed it, we are sharing with you the slides that were used for the webinar today. In the month of May, we will not be holding a webinar but do continue to look out for other tips in our weekly blog posts.
