Reported speech

My sister said she was at home that day
They said they had been in Granada
Elena said her cat was sleeping when he arrived
He said he would buy a car
The teacher told him to turn off the mobile
She asked him not to step on the grass


The letter is written by me
The film is being watched by my pupils
The house has been built by my father
The computer was repaired
Had been arrested him before you arrived?
The Alhambra will be visited by thousands of tourists

All of her family wanted a boy, but in 1980, the 6th of March, a girl was born , a nice blond baby. She was the third girl. There were two more sisters: Catalina and Carmen. She was happy in ‘Cas Campané’, a house situed in the countryside. She played with animals, ran in the woods and rode her bicycle all day long. But soon she started school in ‘Sant Joan’ and she had to study and start her responsabilities. In ‘Sant Joan’ she met Cati, her best friend and they are still inseparable today, they have been friends all their life and maybe they always will be. Eight years later, she started high school. Before she had finished, she spent a long time thinking about her future: her degree, her professional career… And she decided to be a physiotherapist. The summer before she started her course in Barcelona, she went to Dublin to study English. She stayed with a nice family and she remembers the experience as a great moment. In Barcelona, Cati, Toni (another nice friend!) and Marga rented a flat and they lived there for three years. Cati was studying to be a nurse and Toni to be a teacher. They were having fun in Barcelona, but the time to come back to Ibiza arrived. Marga started working with disabled boys and girls in schools. Seven years later, she is still working in the same place and she loves her professional career. In that time, she has learned a lot of things about these boys and girls and three years ago she decided to start her degree as a special education teacher. She doesn’t know if she is going to be a teacher or if she is going to continue with physiotherapy… time will decide!.
In her personal life, she is building her future house. She is excited about the project but it is really difficult to work in the school, study in the afternoon and have time to buy doors, buy windows, decide on the kitchen, think about the furniture… Her boyfriend, called Jordi, is a nice guy and he is helping her a lot!. Estela and Arantxa, her nieces, are happy because they will be swimming in the pool next summer. The house is situated near ‘Cas Campané’, the place where Marga played when she was a girl and the place where her father, Vicente, and her sisters Carmen and Catalina live. Her sisters are married to Joan and Miguel. Marga is happy living near the family and being with her nieces all the time that she wants. Pilusa, her cat, is happy too because now she is living in a flat and soon she will play with the birds and the mice…

"If I were a boy" Beyonce

We are practising the conditional and I heard the new song from Beyonce "If I were a boy". I have found the song by youtube and the lyrics of the song. So, we can practise conditional with the song "If I were a boy"... Enjoy it!:

If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I’d roll out of bed in the mornin
And throw on what I wanted and go
drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I’d kick with who I wanted
And I'd never get confonted for it
Cause they stick up for me.

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I’d be a better man.
I’d listen to her
Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
Cause he’s taken you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it's broken
So they think that I was sleeping alone
I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I know that she’d be faithful
Waitin’ for me to come home

It’s a little too late for you to come back
Say it's just a mistake
Think I’d forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong

But you’re just a boy
You don’t understand (Yeah you don’t understand)
How it feels to love a girl
Someday you wish you were a better man
You don’t listen to her
You don’t care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted
Cause you’ve taken her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed
But you’re just a boy

If I were a boy (Beyonce)

I wish I could pass the exam
I wish we had arrived early because the show has started
I wish you would start your studies

Conditional (Type 3)

If I had been in my house, they wouldn't have stolen the money
If you had worked, you could have finished it
If we had been here yesterday, we would have seen her
If I had worn a new dress, I would have felt better

Conditional (Type 2)

If I came early, I could see my sister
If we didn't say anything, it would be better
If you studied more, you would pass the exam
If I had a swimmingpool, I wouldn't go to the beach

Conditional (type 1)

If I buy a new car, I will spend all of my money
If you go to the party, you will get home late
If we give her a present, she will be very happy
If I stop work soon, I can have lunch
