    What is Reported Speech
    🔵Direct Speech is what a person says directly and to indicate that, we put their words between quotes as in the following example:
    Examples: "I like ice-cream" Lissa said.
    🔵Indirect speech is quoting or repeating what the person said exactly as in the following example:
    Example: Lissa said that she liked ice-cream.

    From these examples, you notice that there is a change in the tense of the verb. That is to say, in the direct speech the verb (like) is in simple present, while in the indirect speech, it has changed to (liked) which is the simple past.

    In reported speech there are major changes that occur not only in the tense of verbs, but also in expressions of time and place as well as pronouns.
