In English there are two different ways of expressing the words of another person: Direct and Indirect Speech. Indirect or Reported Speech is different to Direct Speech because it does not phrase the statement or question in the same way as the original speaker. Direct speech is very simple as the exact words of the original speaker are reported in quotation marks.
