She said to me, “Can you speak Chinese?” Change into Indirect Speech

1 Answer

  1. Indirect Speech: She asked me if I could speak Chinese.

    Explanation: If the reporting verb is in the past tense, then the modals like can changes to could, will/shall change to would, have to changes to had to etc.

    And if the sentence is interrogative, we use the reporting verbs like asked, enquired, etc.

    Note: While answering to “yes or no questions”, we use if or whether.
