a general look at special cases of reported speech. It's useful for ones who want to pay attentions to the situations where reported speech is an odd. For example:
If two complete main clauses are connected with ‚and or ‚but, put ‚that after the conjunction.

Example:
He said,“I saw her but she didn't see me.“ – He said that he had seen her but that she hadn't seen him.“

If the subject is dropped in the second main clause (the conjunction is followed by a verb), do not use ‚that‘.

Example:
She said,“I am a nurse and work in a hospital.“ – He said that she was a nurse and worked in a hospital.“

The above downloadable teaching material is a great resource for high school students at Upper-intermediate (B2) level. It is great for revising Reported Speech (Indirect speech) in English.
