I need some help with reported speech. I have this sentence in direct speech and I'm not sure how to transform it into reported speech. I need to use the verb tell.
"You must do the homework soon,Jane", she said
Thanks in advance for your help
In order to transform "must" into a reported speech form, you will have to use the construction "have/ had to". Especially if we assume that this is reported later, and not immediately after (in which case must might be appropriate...).
So I would say:
You must do the homework soon,Jane", she said = She told Jane that she had to do the homework soon.
Thank you so much Stephanie. I wasn't sure about that.
How about this sentence: "Remember to buy a map,Ann", He said. I have to use the verb remind
I think is like this: He reminded (to) Ann to buy a map
Is that correct?Should I use to after reminded?
