Repoted Speech. Упражнения на перевод предложений в косвенную речь в прошедшем  времени

Теперь переходим к более сложному уровню — переводу в косвенную речь предложений в прошедшем времени. Вы помните правило 5 на согласование времен? Прежде чем приступить к выполнению упражнений, рассмотрим, есть ли согласование времен в русском языке.

Итак, согласование времен в предложении – это подчинение времени придаточного предложения времени главному.

ПРИМЕРЫ согласования времен в английском языке

1.Не lives in New York. – Он живет в Нью Йорке.
I knew that he lived in New York. – Я знал, что он живет в Нью Йорке.

2.Mother is sleeping. – Мама спит.
I thought that mother was sleeping. – Я думал, что моя мама спит.

3.He bought a new car. – Он купил новую машину.
I heard that he had bought a new car. – Я слышал, что он купил новую машину.

Проанализируйте приведенные выше примеры и ответьте на вопрос:

Загрузка ... Загрузка …

Итак, согласование времен — это грамматическое явление, свойственное только английскому языку и правила согласования времен применяются  только, если главное предложение стоит в прошедшем времени. Но это бывает часто! Не забывайте о согласовании времен, выполняя упражнения на Reported Speech ниже.

Некоторые упражнения из этой статьи взяты из замечательного пособия Ю.В. Голицынского. Вы можете купить пособие — Английский язык. Грамматика. Сборник упражнений — Голицынский Ю.Б. | Купить книгу с доставкой | My-shop.ru

John needed to buy some food, that’s why he went to the supermarket.

«Oh, there is so much food!», — John thought, — «I don’t know what to buy … .»

Suddenly, something bumped into his trolley, and vegetables, loaf of bread and a packet of milk fell on the ground.

«I’m so sorry!», — the person said, — «My trolley got broken, that’s why … .»

«Oh, no, it’s my fault, I was very far away in my thoughts … .», — John answered.

Finally, he looked at the person near him. «James!», — he exclaimed, — «I don’t believe it’s you!»

«John! Long time no see!»

The two men burst out laughing.

John said: «Do you remember, when we were schoolboys, we had our own music band?»

James: «Oh, yes! These were lovely days».

John: «Maybe, we can start singing again? I called Dan yesterday, he wants to play the guitar again … .»

James: «I think that is a great idea! Let’s go to the music shop!»

John needed to buy some food but bought nothing of it.
