35 Choose one of the situations below and do the writing for it. WRITING 10 If you report something which is still true, you don’t have to change the tense. You can also keep the same expressions of time and place if they are still correct. Look at the examples and choose the correct description of the situation. Explain why you think the description is correct. 8 1 Tom said that he really loves it here in Bristol.  The speaker is in Bristol.  The speaker isn’t in Bristol. 2 She said that she wants to go there tomorrow.  She said this yesterday.  She said this today. 3 He said that he really likes you.  It is still true.  It is no longer true. 4 She said we have to hand in the report on Tuesday.  Tuesday was yesterday.  Tuesday is in three days. 5 Emily said that she doesn’t get any pocket money.  Now she gets some pocket money.  She still doesn’t get any. Since the speaker uses ‘here’ – just like Tom did – he/she must be in Bristol now as well. Also, it’s still true that Tom loves the place.
