First my english ain't pretty good but I hope you can understand me. :) So at the moment I'm doing my homework and I'm pre-finished with it but 2 sentences are very difficult for the exercise.
I need to put commands in direct speech to the reported speech.
Mother: Don't lose your passport. Keep it somewhere safe.
-> My mother told me not to lose my passport. She told me to keep it somewhere safe.
That's pretty simple but this sentence the negation are not related to the subject or I don't know how I can can describe this ... :/
Mother: Take a present for your French family. It doesn't have to be something expensive.
-> My mother told me to take a present for my French family.
But she told me it not have to be something expensive.
I think that's wrong because it sounds wrong .. :/
Do I need it in this way: ....
But she told me that it doesn't have to be expensive or something like this?
Kinda weird grammar :/
And this sentence is also difficult:
Mother: The journey won't feel so long.
Does anyone has any solutions?:)
