    Cool tell

    Hello!

    Is this sentence correct, please?

    "Has one of your customers ever told you: "your colleagues speak bad french!"?

    Would it be better to say: "Has any of your customers ever mentioned your colleagues speak bad French?

    Thank you

    "Have any of your customers ever mentioned (that) your colleagues speak bad French?"
    Yes, it would.

    Thank you.

    What about this one: "Have you ever heard one of your customers say that your colleagues speak bad French?". Is it better?
