    Usage of Direct and Indirect sentences.

    Are the "Direct" and "Indirect" sentences used in spoken English? if yes then
    which of them is used direct or indirect, or both of them are not used in spoken English.
    Example given below:

    # He said,"I will go to office". (Direct)

    # He said that he would go to office. (Indirect)

    Re: Usage of Direct and Indirect sentences.

    Yes they are. They are often called direct and reported speech.

    Your first sentence is correct, but it needs a space after the comma and "the" before "office".
    The second sentence also needs "the" before "office".
