    What are all those weird symbols? This is extremely difficult to read.

  • English -

    It looks like something weird is happening when you try to type quote marks.

    The "tomorrow" and "next week" examples need "He said...." for the reported speech examples.

    For the last one, it should be, "He said, 'I am feeling great this week.'" (Use single quote marks for quotes within quotes.)

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
