How to report a dialogue

If we report a conversation, we use a reporting verb ('say' and 'tell' are the most common, but there are a lot of other verbs like 'claim', 'admit', 'explain'...). If the reporting verb is in the past tense ( I said that... He told us that... ), we have to change the following:

  • Tenses "I am hungry," I said. - I said I was hungry. "Sarah went to hospital," Terry said. - Terry said that Sarah had gone to hospital. "Jim has gone away," Betty told me. - Betty told me that Jim had gone away. "We will try it again," we promised. - We promised we would try it again.
  • Pronouns They called us," said Tom. - Tom said they had called them. "I like this," Sarah told me. - Sarah told me she liked that.
  • Time and place Harry: "She will come tomorrow." - Harry said she would come the next day. My brother: "I arrived at Warsaw yesterday." - My brother told me that he had arrived at Warsaw the day before. "I'll be here on time," he said. - He said he would be there on time.
  • Word order in reported questions "How old are you?" asked Peter. - Peter wanted to know how old I was. "What did you do?" asked my mum. - My mum asked what I had done. "Will you catch a bus?" I asked my sister. - I asked my sister if she would catch a bus.

Learn How To Write Reported Speech Dialogue Correctly

How to use dialogue tags with reported speech

How do you write reported speech dialogue?

When you start to learn to write dialogue, it seems simple. All you need to do is add a reporting verb or dialogue tag.

You probably learned this at high school. When a character speaks lines of dialogue, you put a double quotation mark at the beginning and end.

But if you use reported speech, you need to include a tense shift.

What’s the difference between dialogue writing and reported speech?

Most dialogue uses active speech. It is what a character says.

But reported speech dialogue is when a character says what another character said.

Let’s look at the difference.

Direct dialogue

When you write dialogue , you are using direct speech.

You are using the exact words that the character says, and then adding a dialogue tag to say who spoke the words.

“I’m going into town this morning. I should be back before dinner,” she said.

The reporting verb is almost always in the simple past verb tense, which is the general rule for fiction writing.

It doesn’t matter which tense the dialogue is using.

It can be present continuous, present perfect , or present simple.

“I’m having friends over for dinner tomorrow night,” he said.

“I’ve had friends over for dinner quite often,” he said.

“I have friends over for dinner all the time,” he said.

You can also use the present simple tense for reporting verbs in some circumstances.

It is when you want to say that someone says something often or all the time.

“When I get older, I think I’ll travel the world,” she says.

“I’m going to buy a Ferrari one day,” he always says.

But you wouldn’t use the present dialogue form in most fiction writing.

Reported speech dialogue

In reported speech or indirect speech , we may not necessarily use the exact words of the speaker.

It is often used to convey small talk or gossip about what other people said.

It is also used to paraphrase long speeches or extended discourse.

We can use both past and present tense in reported speech. But again, the past is much more common.

She said she was going into town that morning and that she should be back before dinner. Past form

He always says that he is going to buy a Ferrari one day. Present form

You need to format dialogue with punctuation and quotation marks. But you write reported speech as a standard sentence.

You include the attribution and reporting verb without punctuation.

When you use the past form, you need to pay special attention to the tense shift.

No matter what tense the original utterance used, reported speech always uses the past.

It is because it is something someone said in the past. It is an action that occurred in the past, so we refer to it as a past event.

Tense shift examples

Compare the difference between these direct and indirect sentences.

I want to go to Norway. He said he wanted to go to Norway.

She will pass her exam for sure. He told me that she would pass her exam for sure.

They wanted to buy a new house but didn’t get the loan. Tom told me that they had wanted to buy a new house but didn’t get the loan.

The general rule is that active speech in present or future tenses shifts back to the past simple.

When active speech is in the present perfect, it shifts back to the past perfect.

But for past simple active speech, it can shift back to past perfect, or stay in the past simple.

In all forms, the relative pronoun, that , is optional.

How to use tense shift in reported speech dialogue

Using reported speech dialogue in writing

When you incorporate reported speech within a character’s dialogue, you need to keep the tense shift.

Here are some reporting dialogue examples.

“Have you seen Jillian lately?” Mary asked.

“Oh, yes. I saw her yesterday, and she told me that she was going to France next month ,” Anne replied.

“I didn’t feel well this morning, so I called my boss to let him know. There is an important meeting this afternoon. But my boss said that it was okay and that he would get someone else to take the minutes . I still feel guilty, though,” Jane said. 

“I saw Michelle this morning, and she told me that she had been waiting for days for the results of her blood test . I’m not sure what’s wrong, but she looked worried,” Susan said.

As you can see in the reported speech dialogue examples above, the parts that are indirect reported speech retain the correct past form.

The rest of the direct written dialogue can be in any tense or form the speaker uses.

Punctuating your dialogue

There are five basic aspects of good dialogue punctuation.

1. All punctuation is inside the quotation marks.

These include full stops (periods), commas, question marks, and exclamation marks.

Jim said, “I’m not aware of it”. Wrong Jim said, “I’m not aware of it.” Correct

“I don’t know what to think”, she said. Wrong “I don’t know what to think,” she said. Correct

“Where did he go”? she asked. Wrong “Where did he go?” she asked. Correct

“Get out of here”! he shouted. Wrong “Get out of here!” he shouted. Correct

2. Using an em dash or ellipsis.

We use em dashes to indicate a speaker was interrupted. You add an ellipsis when a speaker’s words trail off, or when an utterance is incomplete.

“I was planning on buying–” she started. “No way! I told you we need to save money,” he said.

“It’s funny when you think about things, and well …” Anne said. “You think too much, Anne,” Mary said.

3. Start a new paragraph for a new speaker.

It is confusing for a reader if the dialogue runs on in the same paragraph.

When there is a new speaker in dialogue, always start in a new paragraph.

4. Quotation marks for long dialogues

Dialogues are usually short and sharp.

But you might have a piece of dialogue that is more of an oration, and you need to divide it into paragraphs.

You can use an opening and closing quotation mark for the whole dialogue.

Another option is to add one opening quotation mark at the beginning of each new paragraph and then close the final paragraph.

5. Don’t mix quotation mark styles.

It is up to you whether you use curly, straight, double, or single quotations.

In his book, Cloudsteet, Tim Winton uses no quotation marks at all for the dialogue. But it is still great dialogue.

Generally, readers won’t mind what your choice is.

But they will be distracted or confused if you mix different types of quotation marks.

It isn’t an easy check as you are proofreading. But there is an easy way to make sure you are consistent.

Try using an online writing app to help you.

If you use Prowritingaid, you can check your whole manuscript by ticking Dialogue Tags Check in your combo settings.

For Grammarly users, you can find any errors in your Correctness tab.

It will show you any quotation mark inconsistencies.

How to check for consistent quotation marks in Grammarly

Once you know how to write active dialogue and reported speech, it is easy to combine the two into reported dialogue.

Just remember that dialogue is active speech.

But reported speech is indirect, so it always needs to use backward tense shift into the past.

The most critical part of good dialogue writing is your use of correct and consistent punctuation .

When you get it right, a reader doesn’t notice it. They become blind to it.

But if you have inconsistencies, it stands out and can become annoying.

Reported speech: reporting verbs

Reported speech: reporting verbs

Do you know how to tell someone what another person said using reporting verbs? Test what you know with interactive exercises and read the explanation to help you.

Look at these examples to see how reporting verbs are used.

direct speech: 'You should come, it's going to be a lot of fun,' she said. indirect speech: She persuaded me to come. direct speech: 'Wait here,' he said. indirect speech: He told us to wait there. direct speech: 'It wasn't me who finished the coffee,' he said. indirect speech: He denied finishing the coffee.

Try this exercise to test your grammar.

Reported speech 3 – reporting verbs: 1

Grammar explanation

When we tell someone what another person said, we often use the verbs say , tell or ask . These are called 'reporting verbs'. However, we can also use other reporting verbs. Many reporting verbs can be followed by another verb in either an infinitive or an -ing form. 

Reporting verb + infinitive

Verbs like advise , agree , challenge , claim , decide , demand , encourage , invite , offer , persuade , promise , refuse and remind can follow an infinitive pattern.

'Let's see. I'll have the risotto, please.' He decided to have the risotto. 'I'll do the report by Friday, for sure.' She promised to do the report by Friday. 'It's not a good idea to write your passwords down.' They advised us not to write our passwords down.

We can also use an infinitive to report imperatives, with a reporting verb like tell , order , instruct , direct or warn .

'Please wait for me in reception.' The guide told us to wait for her in reception. 'Don't go in there!' The police officer warned us not to go in there.

Reporting verb + -ing form

Verbs like admit , apologise for , complain about , deny , insist on , mention and suggest can follow an -ing form pattern.

'I broke the window.' She admitted breaking the window. 'I'm really sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.' He apologised for not getting back to me sooner. 'Let's take a break.' She suggested taking a break.

Do this exercise to test your grammar again.

Reported speech 3 – reporting verbs: 2

Language level

Would you consider the following structure to be reported speech?

The original sentence went as follows:

- After the procedure the doctors confirmed it was the right thing to have done.

Why am I asking? As far as I know the top notch phrasing should go like this:

- After the procedure the doctors confirmed it HAD BEEN the right thing to have done.

I think so because at that time the doctors must have said something like:

- Doctors confirming after the procedure - It was the right thing to have done, Dominik.

Would you be so kind to comment on this one, please :)

Hello Dominik992,

The version that you propose is correct, and, as you mention, is what is taught as best practice in most grammars.

The other version is also fine, however. Especially in more informal speaking and writing, we often use a past simple form when a past perfect form doesn't add any additional or important meaning.

Best wishes, Kirk LearnEnglish team

Hello! I would like to know whether this two sentences are correct. I think they are both correct, but I am not sure.

"He apologized for letting me down." Or: "He apologized for having let me down"

Thank you in advance! GabDip

Hello GabDip,

Yes, both sentences are correct. There is a slight difference in meaning:

Sentence 1 ( for letting ) could be about a particular situation or it could be about his general habit of being unreliable.

Sentence 2 ( for having let ) describes an issue in the past which is not true any more.

The LearnEnglish Team

Hello, i have 2 questions, firstly is the same use advise with verb + object + infinitive that use it with + gerund, it changes the meaning or no? secondly, when we use warn + object + infinitive it has the same meaning that warn somebody against?

Hi facundo62,

For  advise , the meaning is the same with those two structures. For example:

  • I'd advise resting as much as you can.
  • I'd advise you to rest as much as you can.

However, the structure  advise  + - ing form is less commonly used than the advise + object + to + infinitive structure. 

About  warn , the two structures you mentioned do also have the same meaning. But just to be clear, it's  warn  + object + not + to  + infinitive that has that meaning. For example:

  • The doctor warned me not to eat too much.
  • The doctor warned me against eating too much.

I hope that helps.

LearnEnglish team

what is the diffrence beetween he suggested to ask andi for some ideas and he suggested asking andi for ideas

"He suggested to ask ..." is not grammatically correct. 

The verb "suggest" is followed by either:

  • an - ing  verb form -->  He suggested asking ...  OR
  • a  that  clause -->  He suggested  that we ask   ...

"Suggest" is not in the group of verbs that is followed by an infinitive ( to  + verb).

it helped alot thanks

Why can't we say "Katie suggested us going for a walk" but instead should say "KATIE SUGGESTED THAT WE GO FOR A WALK" whilst "The man warned us not to park in this street" is correct. It's unclear why "She suggested us" isn't correct but "The man warned us...." is.

Are you looking for ideas to teach students how to write dialogue in a narrative essay? This blog has creative ideas to show your students the right amount of dialogue to use in a story and activities to motivate and educate! These ideas are ideal for any writing curriculum and are a part of a series of mini lessons for writer’s workshop designed for scaffolding through the writing process.

Use the following ideas to teach adding dialogue to a narrative story.

Start off with a song.  I love love love playing the song, You Talk Too Much .  You can find it here- My students giggle every time I play it and they look around the room wondering what it has to do with writing!  He He:

How should dialogue be used? Dialogue should be chosen carefully.  Readers don’t need to know everything the characters are saying.  Too much dialogue can be very confusing.

A.  Never say the obvious.

Ex.  Joi said, “I was at the park too.  There were slides, swings, and monkey bars.”

B.  Skip the meet and greet.

Ex.  “Hi James, ” he said  James replied, “Hello there!”

C.  When characters speak, something should be happening and the plot should be progressing.  Conflict between characters is a great place to add dialogue, but balance it with action!

Ex.  Tim screamed, “You stole the purple pens!”  As he marched over to Lucy, she folded her arms.

D.  Use dialogue to reveal a character’s personality.

Ex.  Lisa criticized, “Did you see that girl’s ugly dress?  I would never wear that.”

*** I like this idea from Janet Fitch:  Find a section in the story where the characters have a whole conversation, and then cross out the dialogue that is commonplace.  Because, as Fitch says, “A line anybody could say is a line nobody should say.”  BRILLIANT!!!!!

2. MENTOR TEXT

Mentor Texts show the appropriate amount of dialogue.  I am sure you have one of these sitting on your library shelf!  They all show great examples of using dialogue in a narrative story!  Read the story to your students and point out how the author uses dialogue.

How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato by Lauren Child Quick as a Cricket by Audrey Wood

Take your class story and find places to add meaningful dialogue.  Talk it out with your class.  Why would this be a good place to a add dialogue?  How can we make it meaningful?

4. TAKING NOTES

Taking notes on how to write dialogue will help students remember the lesson as well as give them a resource to refer back to when writing.  This interactive writing notebook page uses speech bubbles to give example of dialogue and flip open to take notes.  You may also use MINI WRITING ANCHOR CHARTS to paste in notebooks if you don’t have time for interactive writing notebooks.

report the dialogue in ex 2 in your notebook

5. PRACTICE

Give students a few story prompts and have them work in groups or partners to develop meaningful dialogue between characters.  Share with the rest of the group or class.  If you are in need of prompts, click PROMPTS for a variety of resources.

Students should apply their knowledge on writing dialogue by adding meaningful dialogue to their story.

Share dialogue ideas with partners, groups, or whole group.  This will help reluctant writers to think of ideas for their own story and confident writers to think back on their own writing for improvement.

I HOPE YOU FOUND THIS USEFUL AND YOUR STUDENTS ARE USING DIALOGUE IN A WAY THAT WON’T MAKE YOU PULL YOUR HAIR OUT!

“You are an angel! Not only is this a spectacular resource but my students are constantly engaged. I’ve never used an interactive notebook type resource before and I am sold! The children are learning without realising it and I have never had such success with narrative writing across so many students. I am pleasantly amazed. Looking forward to moving onto the other text types as the year progresses (calendar year in Australia). Thank you so much!” -Mrs. N.

Report – examples & model answers | B2 First (FCE)

Fce example report:  topic (technology) .

A group of British teachers is going to visit your college for two days. The aim of their trip is to learn about how technology is used in education in your country.

You have been asked to write a report for the group leader. Your report should:

  •  include information about how technology is used to teach different subjects
  • recommend which lessons the teachers should watch to see technology being use

Write your report.

Example Answer (Grade: 4)

Use of Technology in education

Introduction

This report is intended to inform how technology is used in common lessons and recommend the most interesting technical developments to be seen. I conducted a survey among teachers and students in order to find out what is prefered to be used by them.

Technology in different subjects

The majority of the people claimed that the best thing were computers and interactive boards. I was given these reasons:

  •  They provide an oportunity to make the lessons more enjoyable
  • Everybody is able to find information on the internet whenever they want to
  • Computer presentations can be easily given

However, use of another technical developments vary among students and teachers depending on which subject they focus on. For instance, people were interested in Science mentioned these points:

  • newly equipped chemical lab with its recently purchased substances
  • equipment suitable for teaching Physics (e.g. digital watches, laser)

Recommendations

For most of the people who I asked for their reply were really important computers and interactive boards in the classrooms. I would therefore recommend seeing this. On the other hand, if you are interested

Get Your FCE Report Checked!

Fce example report:  topic (town centre) .

Your local government wants to improve your town centre and make it better for local people.

Your college principal has asked students to write a report on the situation to send to the local government. In your report you should:

  • Describe some of the problems in the town centre
  • Suggest, with reasons, what improvements should be made to solve these problems

Write your report .

Example Answer (Grade: 4-5)

The aim of this report is to provide an overview of some problems in the Pascani’s centre and to suggest what improvements should be made.

The already existing problems include the fact that there is no big shopping mall, just some little shops with aliments or clothes. The parking zone is also quite small and, as it is located in front of the Central Hotel, there is no space for all the cars. Not to mention the low level of cleanness around the zone where you can’t even go for a walk.

It seems like the town centre has a lot of problems regarding its place. My recommendations are the following:

  •  building a new shopping centre which includes a variety of products and activities.
  •  enlarging the parking zone, so there will be more space for cars and for leisure activities of the young men too.
  •  cleaning up the zone and introducing recycle bins for the garbage

In the light of my suggestions, I strongly believe that these are the best methods of raising the pedestrians view of city

FCE Example Report:  Topic (Cafe) 

Recently there have been some complaints from students about your college cafe. Your College Principal has asked you to write a report about the cafe and make recommendations on how to improve:

  • the food and drink evadable
  • the furniture and decoration
  • the entertainment facilities

Example Answer (Grade: 3)

I’m writing about the college cafe because students have complained that the standart it is very low and needs to be improved.

Food and drink

In our college cafe you can only buy feet food or ‘sandwiches which its not co healty. This Is very bad for young people who they are trying to get fit. Why can’t our cafe provided with different salats, fruit and vegetarien food? This would be much better. Also changing cola or fuzz drink with fresh juice is more healty.

Furniture and decoration

The furniture is too uncomfortable. Some of tables and chair is also broken, so that could be dangerous. Sometimes no enough chairs for all the students so they can’t seat down. And decoration as well in old fashion, with horrible colour.

Entertainment facilities

It is only one TV in the cafe for entertainment, but nobody watching it because the volume is down. Also not all students want to watching the same chanel. My recomendation is get rid off the TV and have like an Internet cafe. Students can entertain and study at the same time.

FCE Model Report:  Topic (Swimming Facilities) 

A friend is intending to stay in your town. She will be the group leader of ten teenagers from her swimming club.

She would like you to write a report for her club about the swimming facilities in your area, both outdoor and indoor, with your recommendations.

Model Answer (Grade: 5)

The aim of this report is to provide information about the swimming facilities in the town of Bamford.

General There are three swimming pools in Bamford; the Temple Meads Pool, the St Helens Pool and the Scartho Pool (outdoor).

Temple Meads Pool This pool is located in the city centre. There are eight lanes and there is also a pool for children. The pool facilities are all new. The admission costs are the highest as it costs £3.00 per session and £1.50 for under 12s.

St Helens Pool This pool was built over 100 years ago and the architecture is very beautiful. The pool is colder than the Temple Meads pool. The admission cost is only £2.00 and £1.00 for under 10s.

Scartho Pool This outdoor pool is open from the 1st June to 15th September. It is a very big pool and it is extremely popular on hot summer days (It is sometimes full). It also opens to 9.00 on summer evenings. It is the same price as Temple Meads.

Recommendations I really think your group would enjoy Scartho Pool but if it’s raining or full Temple Meads would be fine.

Rishi: It is okay. You will do better if you read English regularly.

Milly: Thank you for your encouragement. To speak the truth, I am afraid as I couldn’t secure more than 50% marks in English in the last examination.

Rishi: I paid equal attention to all the subjects. So, I am not worried about any particular subject. Now I am revising all the subjects.
