    Reported speech

    Hi there! :o)
    I would like to know if we should change the tense of a verb in each conditional clause when we report direct speech.
    I would also like to know if there is any difference between these two phrasal verbs: to think sth over, to think sth through.
    Thanks a lot! :o)

    Re: Reported speech

    Hi
    I'm not a teacher, I just want to make a suggestion.

    think sth over:
    to consider sth carefully, especially before reaching a decision:
    Ex:He’d like more time to think things over.
    think sth through
    to consider a problem or a possible course of action fully
