Me digo que te diga. La construcción del inglés para informar usa muchos pronombres y auxiliares y es muy bueno para la práctica y formación de frases en inglés.

Hola a todos, muy buenas tardes, muy buenos días. Bienvenidos al podcast de Inglés Diario, en esta clase seguimos con lo del intermedio y trabajamos con Carlos y Ana el Reported Speech, muy interesante.

Teacher: Reported Speech ok? Tú vas a decir algo y tú me vas a decir lo que ha dicho Carlos. Y yo voy a decir algo y Carlos va a decir aquí lo que he dicho yo.

Ana: Ok.

Teacher: So I say something and you tell Ana what I said, ok? Now, the rule is if it’s present, if I say in present I’m growing tomatos at home. I’m growing tomatos at home.

Carlos: Ok. Tomatos it’s the same as tomatoes or…

Teacher: Tomatoes its American (0141), tomatos, tomatoes interesting. I’m growing tomatos at home, Chris said that he was growing tomatos at home, ok? So I’m growing tomatos at home. Chris said that, Chris said that, Chris told me that he was growing tomatos at home.

Carlos: So the present’s past?

Teacher: Exactly, present’s past y tercera persona porque si Chris opens the door, Chris said that he opened, I opened the door. Chris said that he opened the door. Ok?

Ana: Yeah.

Teacher: Ok, so cuando es el past simple. I broke my leg, I broke my leg. Llega a pasado perfecto, pasado perfecto como…

Ana: ¿En español?

Teacher: En inglés.

Ana: Have broken.

Teacher: No, pasado es “Had”.

Ana: Had broken.

Teacher: Ok si yo digo algo en pasado tienes que introducirlo a pasado perfecto, ¿Ok? So, I broke my leg.

Ana: Chris had broken…

Teacher: Chris said, Chris said that…

Ana: Chris said that he had broken his leg.

Teacher: Exactly, ok. “Will” se convierte en “Would”. I will bring it, Chris told me that he would bring it. Can…

Ana: Could.

Teacher: Yeah. Must.

Ana: Must.

Teacher: Had to. Es interesante, no es tan importante pero en Reported utilizamos, have to en vez de must.

Ana: ¿But must or had?

Teacher: Had to.

Ana: Had. With D?

Teacher: Yes, with D. And that’s it. Ok. So…

Carlos: Ana, I like your shoes.

Ana: I leg?

Carlos: I like.

Ana: Ah, Carlos told me that he liked my shoes.

Teacher: Excellent.

Ana: I think we should leave.

Carlos: I think we should leave. Ana told me that he thought or…

Teacher: He?

Carlos: She, she… I don’t know… she thought that we had to leave?

Teacher: Yeah, sure, se queda igual. Haz hecho todo el trabajo con “Think”, thought.

Carlos: Ok, ok. We’re having an English class.

Ana: Carlos told me that we were having an English class.

Teacher: Oh well done Ana, that was very very fast.

Ana: It’s easy? No, yeah? It’s easy.

Carlos: Ana told me that it was easy.

Teacher: Excellent, perfect. Ana told me that it was easy. Repeat, it’s easy.

Ana: It’s easy.

Teacher: Ok. You say it’s easy.

Ana: Yeah.

Teacher: That’s very Spanish sounded, It’s easy. It’s easy.

Ana: It’s easy.

Teacher: It’s easy. ¿Y rápido?

Ana: Easy.

Teacher: It’s…

Ana: It’s easy. I can’t say it faster, If I have to say walk I have to say it’s easy.

Teacher: That’s perfect, that’s sounds great. Pero júntalo porque has dicho “It’s easy” en vez de “It’s-easy”.

Ana: It’s easy.

Teacher: No hay, te estás cortando. It’s-easy como sy-sy.

Ana: It’s easy.

Teacher: Exactly, exactly that was perfect, yeah, good. It’s-easy. It’s-easy. Ok.

Ana: I bought a new car.

Carlos: Ana told me that he have…

Ana: She.

Carlos: Joder…

Teacher: Christ.

Carlos: Sorry. She had bought a new car? I took it home.

Ana: I took it home? Ah, Carlos told me that he had taking it at home.

Teacher: Taking it at home.

Ana: Ok, Carlos told me that he had taking it at home.

Teacher: No, no, no. Eso es el error.

Ana: Ah ok, Ah ok. So… You say “I took”.

Carlos: I took, I took it home.

Ana: Ok, so Carlos told me he had taking it home.

Teacher: Yes.

Ana: Ah ok. That’s the preposition.

Teacher: Yeah, It’s at home, It’s at home.

Ana: Ok.

Teacher: ¿Dónde está? It’s at home. I took it home. I go home. Ok.

Ana: I stole it.

Carlos: Ana told me that she had stolen it.

Teacher: Perfect.

Carlos: I cheated.

Ana: ¿Ah? Sorry.

Carlos: I cheated

Ana: Ah ok. Carlos told me that he has cheated it.

Teacher: Has dicho “He has”.

Ana: Ya, because I don’t know exactly how the composition is.

Teacher: Yeah is pasado perfecto.

Ana: Ok so, Carlos told me that he had cheated it.

Teacher: Cheated it.

Ana: Cheated it.

Teacher: Cheated it.

Ana: Cheated it.

Teacher: Yes exactly, cheated it.

Ana: I do it. Like…

Carlos: Nike?

Ana: Nike.

Teacher: Just do it.

Carlos: Do it, ah ok. Ana told me that she would do it.

Teacher: Perfect, good.

Carlos: Let me take notes. I finished it for you.

Teacher: Bien, so Ana.

Ana: Carlos…

Teacher: (09:11) dónde está el —–

Ana: Ah ok. So Carlos told me he would finish it.

Teacher: Good yeah.

Ana: Or he would have it finish it, no?

Teacher: Yeah. Or we can also say he would get it finish.  Yeah, if you past it, you say por ejemplo “Get it finish”. Ok.

Carlos: Paula will pay for it. Will pay for it.

Ana: I thought that was my turn. No?

Teacher: I don’t know.

Ana: I think.

Carlos: Nah, nah, nah.

Ana: Paula would…

Carlos: Paula will pay for it.

Ana: Carlos told me that Paula would paid for it.

Teacher: Yeah, has dicho: “Paid”.

Ana: Would pay for it.

Teacher: Yeah, would pay for it. Would. Yeah, yeah.

Ana: I think about it.

Carlos: So, Ana told me that she thought, no es “She would think about it”.

Teacher: Excellent, good.

Carlos: You must say it.

Ana: Carlos told me that I had to say it.

Teacher: Correct, perfect, yeah, good.

Ana: You should do it.

Carlos: So, Ana told me that I had to do it.

Teacher: Yeah, good. De hecho en el, está bien, en el caso de “Should” no hace falta cambiar nada.

Carlos: Ah ok. Ana told me that I should do it.

Teacher: Exactly.

Carlos: You ought to leave.

Ana: You old?

Carlos: Ought.

Ana: What’s ought?

Teacher: Ought. Ought to. Es O-U-G-H-T to, ought to. Es igual que “Must”.

Ana: So, Carlos told me that I had to go?

Teacher: Yeah, good.

Ana: She might come.

Carlos: She might come. Ana told me that she had to come.

Teacher: Might.

Carlos: Or might.

Teacher: Might. Might, se queda igual.

Carlos: Might.

Teacher: “Might” y “Should”…

Ana: It’s the same past (12:08)

Teacher: Yeah, it is, it is. De hecho si dices: “May” se cambia en “Might” pero si dices: “Might”…

Ana: Just keep it.

Teacher: Just keep it. Pero estamos hablando de cosas que no importan realmente con el inglés.

Ana: And do you have to change the future? I mean can you say: “Carlos told me that he would go?”

Teacher: Yeah and…

Ana: We were changing will by would.

Teacher: Yeah. Oh…

Ana: But my question is…

Teacher: Stays the same, yeah. I would go.

Ana: For example if I say: “Chris be calm, Carlos told me that he will go”.

Teacher: Carlos told me that he would go. It depends it, depends on the situation.

Ana: Ok.

Teacher: Because you have to, in this you have to think a little bit about the situation because could be Carlos told me that he would have gone. Si ha pasado la cosa pero si, you know, a mí, yeah. But en principio no, no se cambia, se queda igual.

Y ya está, para esta clase si te ha gustado ir a Facebook y dejarme un “Me Gusta”. Gracias a todos, adiós.
