Another doubt. Thank you very much for your help.

1) She said to me (she told me) that I could go to the cinema as long as I finished my homework.
2) Is "she said to me" a mistake?
say is normally followed by direct speech.

  • English -

    Both ways of phrasing #1 are correct. The phrasing in parentheses is more commonly used.
