Quiz playing is a wonderful way to increase your knowledge of English as a Second Language. Remember that all of our ESL quizzes have titles that are both friendly and technical at the same time… In the case of this quiz you might like to tell your friends about “What Did You Say?” but no doubt your teachers will talk about the “Reported Speech quiz”! If you hear a technical term and you want to find a quiz about the subject then just look through the list of quiz titles until you find what you need.
This quiz is all about reported (or 'indirect' speech: how you describe 'what someone said to you'). Reported speech is simple enough once you understand how English uses the tenses in common situations. There may be one or two other changes to the original words, too, but there is always a logic at work...
'What did you say?' / 'I said the water's freezing!'
