  1. b) Today’s grammar theme is Indirect Speech. There are 2 ways of conveying the speaker’s words:
Direct Speech Indirect Speech
To report smb’s words without any changes, keeping grammatical, lexical and intonational  features is the exact meaning of what someone said, but not the exact words,
The boy says: “I am  busy”.

The teacher asks the pupils: “Are you ready?”

The boy says that he is busy.

The teacher asks the pupils if they are ready.

If the verb of the main sentence is in the past tense, there will be the sequence of tenses (grammatical, lexical, intonational changes)
The boy said: “I am busy”.

The teacher asked the pupils: “Are you ready?”

Bolat asked Madina: “Where are you from?”
