Hi, everyone! What’s up? 🙂
Now is the time to learn a bit more about Indirect Questions or Embedded Questions.
There are two kinds of questions in English – direct and indirect. We use indirect questions if we want to sound more formal or polite, especially when we are talking to people we don’t know.
When we create indirect questions, we use introductory phrases such as:
Can/could you tell/show me …? / Do you know …? / Would you mind telling/showing me …? / Have you any idea …? / I wonder … / I wonder if you would mind telling/showing me …?
1) (direct question) What time is it?
(indirect question) Could you tell me what time it is?
