Hi Guys,
This is My last writing in my Primbon’s..
Now, We will learn about Direct and Indirect speech...


Direct speech refers to reproducing another person’s exact words or saying exactly what someone has said (sometimes called quoted speech)
Here what a person says appears within quotation marks ("...") and should be word for word.

For example:
She said, "Today's lesson is on presentations."
"Today's lesson is on presentations," she said.


Indirect speech reproducing the idea of another person’s words that doesn’t use question mark to enclose what the person said and it doesn’t have to be word for word. Indirect speech is sometimes called reported speech

For example:
Direct speech   :"I'm going to the cinema", he said.
Indirect speech : He said he was going to the cinema.


Present simple
Past tense

direct                    : Vita said “ I eat fried rice”
indirect                 : Vita said that  she ate fried rice.

Past simple
Past perfect

direct                    : Mother said “ I went to market yesterday”
indirect                 : Mother said (that) she had gone to market the day before.

 Future simple
Past future

direct                    : Dave said “ I will buy an i-pod next week’
indirect                 : Dave said (that) he would buy an i-pod the week after

Present continuous
Past continuous

direct                    : Gama said “ I’m playing football”
indirect                 : Gama said he was playing football

Past continuous
Past perfect continuous

direct                    : She said “ I was teaching earlier”
indirect                 : She said she had been teaching earlier

when we want to report what someone said , wedon’t usually repeat their exact words , we use our words , we can use reporting words such as tell say as follow by “that clause”

Example  :
my  mother said that she got up at 4 o’clock

Hi guys.. 

Are you ready to learn about the passive voice?
If you have, let's immediately read that lesson right now!
Hopefully you can make a sentence passive voice well after reading my primbon's.
Happy reading!



Passive Voice

The passive voice is less usual than the active voice. The active voice is the "normal" voice. But sometimes we need the passive voice. In this lesson we look at how to construct the passive voice, when to use it and how to conjugate it.


Construction of the Passive Voice

The structure of the passive voice is very simple:
subject + auxiliary verb (be) + main verb (past participle)
The main verb is always in its past participle form.
Look at these examples:

auxiliary verb (to be)

main verb (past participle)


by everyone.
100 people

by this company.

in euro.
in dollars.

in yen?

Use of the Passive Voice

We use the passive when:
  • we want to make the active object more important
  • we do not know the active subject

give importance to active object (President Kennedy)
President Kennedy
was killed
by Lee Harvey Oswald.
active subject unknown
My wallet
has been stolen.

Note that we always use by to introduce the passive object (Fish are eaten by cats).
Look at this sentence:
  • He was killed with a gun.
Normally we use by to introduce the passive object. But the gun is not the active subject. The gun did not kill him. He was killed by somebody with a gun. In the active voice, it would be: Somebody killed him with a gun. The gun is the instrument. Somebody is the "agent" or "doer".


Conjugation for the Passive Voice

We can form the passive in any tense. In fact, conjugation of verbs in the passive tense is rather easy, as the main verb is always in past participle form and the auxiliary verb is always be. To form the required tense, we conjugate the auxiliary verb. So, for example:
  • present simple: It is made
  • present continuous: It is being made
  • present perfect: It has been made
Here are some examples with most of the possible tenses:

to be washed
It is washed.
It was washed.
It will be washed.
It would be washed.
It is being washed.
It was being washed.
It will be being washed.
It would be being washed.
perfect simple
It has been washed.
It had been washed.
It will have been washed.
It would have been washed.
perfect continuous
It has been being washed.
It had been being washed.
It will have been being washed.
It would have been being washed.

Do you know how to preposition in, on, and at?
Here you will learn all about the preposition in, on, and at.

Preposition in, on, and at is divided into two, namely:
1. Preposition of Time; in, on, and at
2. Preposition of Place; in, on, and at

Here is the explanation.

1. Prepositions of Time: at, in, on

We use:
  • at for a PRECISE TIME
  • on for DAYS and DATES
at 3 o'clock
in May
on Sunday

in summer
on Tuesdays
at noon
in the summer

in the 1990s
on Christmas Day
at sunrise
in the next century

Look at these examples:
  • I have a meeting at 9am.
  • The shop closes at midnight.
  • Jane went home at lunchtime.
  • In England, it often snows in December.

on Sunday afternoons
in the evening(s)

When we say last, next, every, this we do not also use at, in, on.
  • I went to London last June. (not in last June)
  • He's coming back next Tuesday. (not on next Tuesday)
  • I go home every Easter. (not at every Easter)
  • We'll call you this evening. (not in this evening)

2. Prepositions of Place: at, in, on

     In general, we use:
