📝 Tips para entender el estilo indirecto con presente simple y continuo

1. Cambia los tiempos verbales de present simple y present continuous en el discurso directo por los tiempos verbales correspondientes en el estilo indirecto. Por ejemplo, si en el discurso directo tienes la frase «I love chocolate» (present simple), en el estilo indirecto sería «She said that she loves chocolate» (present simple en tercera persona del singular).

2. Agrega palabras como «said that» o «told me that» al inicio de la oración en estilo indirecto para indicar que alguien está informando sobre algo que ha sido dicho. Por ejemplo, en lugar de decir «I’m going to the party» en estilo directo, en estilo indirecto dirías «He told me that he was going to the party».

3. Cambia los pronombres y otros elementos que denotan persona y tiempo para que concuerden con la nueva perspectiva en estilo indirecto. Por ejemplo, si en el discurso directo tienes la frase «You are working hard» (present continuous), en el estilo indirecto sería «She said that I am working hard» (cambiando el pronombre «you» por «I» y manteniendo el presente continuo).
