  • Indirect questions are different from Reported questions.

  • We use Indirect questions when we ask for information.

  • Indirect questions are introduced with Could you tell me…?, Do you know…?, I wonder…, I want to know…

  • Their verb is in the affirmative.

  • There are no changes in the verb tenses.

  • If the Indirect questions start with I wonder…or I want to know… , then the question mark is omitted.

VI. Imagine that you are in an unknown place. Use indirect questions to ask for an information. You’d like to

  • visit the local museum

  • have dinner

  • go shopping

  • buy some souvenirs

  • find a good hotel

  • listen to a local jazz band

  • meet local artists

  • ride a horse

  • send a telegram

  • read about local outstanding people
