John said, “They went to the cinema.” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: John said that they had been to the cinema.

    Explanation: When the reporting verb is in the past (said) and the direct speech is in the past indefinite tense, then the indirect (reported) speech will change into the past perfect tense.

    Past Indefinite Tense > Past Perfect Tense.
