Thank you so much !!

About the Report speech
for example:

He said: "It's cold".
He said it was cold

I need to do the Indirect speech.
I don't believe you are using the correct term then. I think I get what you were trying to say though.

I looked over some of your questions. It looks like you are looking for a native English speaker that is currently living in Spain. Is that correct?

Well, some questions were made thinking in a native english speakers living in Spain, (because he told us at first that we must record the interview, later he changed his mind and told us that is not necessary because he will not revise all the 60 recordings... pfff and now I can't change the questions because I have the original revised by him) but this really doesn't matter for me, because I only need the interview, I mean that if I invent some questions is not a problem, because the teacher want to see only how we write the Indirect speech.
