  1. Here is a good webpage that explains what reported speech is:

    http://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/reported-speech.html

    There are two ways in which you can report (write) what someone has said or asked: direct address and indirect address.

    Direct --
    She asked me, "Do you like science fiction movies?"
    He told me, "My sister is visiting me this week."

    Indirect --
    She asked me if I like science fiction movies.
    He told me that his sister was visiting him this week.
