Frequently Asked Questions


What is direct narration?

When the actual words/sentences spoken by the speaker are quoted in a speech, it is known as direct speech/narration.

Having a basic understanding of reported speech is necessary for students of any class or age. Solving exercises on direct & indirect speech will help them understand thoroughly and use them correctly.
