Reported speech - Reported statements >> Grammar Reference
1 Read the theory and the examples. Are there similar structures in your language?
We can say what another person said using:
Direct speech - we repeat the actual words someone said. "I'm leaving on Monday," John said.
Reported speech - we report the meaning of what someone said. John said that he was leaving on Monday.
In reported statements we change the verb tenses, pronouns and time expressions that were used in the direct speech.

Ann said she played tennis every Sunday.
