So the sentence: "I have heard that you had never been to Australia before." could be right? If it isnt indirect speech, how can I see what tense to use?
Well, I think you can, but you would have to set some kind of context first. Why does the fact that you bought new clothes have a direct bearing on the present? That's what the present perfect would suggest. It seems more natural to refer to this event as something finished, in the past ie. to use the past simple.Why I cant write: „I have heard that you have bought new clothes“ ?
