Reported Requests and Commands
So, we have mastered how to report statements and questions.
In this next lesson, we will take a look at how to report commands and requests, using the verbs tell and ask.
What is a command?
When you tell someone to do something, this is a command.
“Park the car next to the tree.”
“Don’t forget to buy bread when you go to the shop.”
What is a request?
A request is generally more polite than a command. With a request, you ask someone to do something.
“Please could you get some chocolate at the shop?”
“Would you close the door on your way out, please?”
Let’s take a look at how to report them.
