We can report people’s words by using direct speech or reported speech. “I’m tired!”, Helen said. Helen said (that) she was tired.
Changes in reported speech
Reporting the direct speech into the indirect one we should know the Sequence of tenses. Sequence of tenses – if the verb in the main clause /главное предложение/ is in the past tense - the other verbs are in one of the past tenses too.
Present Simple I'm a teacher. Past Simple He said (that) he was a teacher Present Progressive I'm having lunch with my parents. Past Progressive He said (that) he was having lunch with his parents. Past Simple I bought a new car. Past Perfect He said (that) he had bought a new car. Future Simple I will go to the cinema. Future-in-the-Past He said (that) he would go to the cinema. Present Perfect I've been to France three times. Past Perfect He said (that) he had been to France three times.
NOTE: modal verbs could, would, might and should do not change.
now then/at that moment today/tonight that day/that night here there this/these that/those tomorrow the following day/the next day, the day after yesterday the previous day/the day before (a year) ago (a year) before/earlier
Differences between TELL and SAY TELL is always followed by a direct object /прямое дополнение В.п./ or someone’s name. Harry told me (that) he was hungry. Harry told Sarah (that) he was cold. SAY is followed by a subordinate clause /придаточное предложение/. She said (that) she was hungry. He said (that) he was feeling tired.
