    Smile Reported Speech

    Hi,I'm Thao.I'm from Vietnamese.While I do my homework,I had a problem about Command and Imperative(in Reported Speech).
    I learn:
    When change introductory verb:suggest,have two ways:
    1.verb+ing
    2.that+S'+v'(SHOULD)+B.I
    So,when do we use first way or second way?
    Thanks very much!
    Googbye!
    Thao

    Default Re: Reported Speech

    .
    Offhand, I would say that they are just two options for expressing the same thing. Use the one you like.

    If you can give me some problematical sample sentences, I can be more specific.
