GRAMMAR: Direct / Indirect Questions – Polite Forms

Direct Questions – these are the normal questions we ask friends and family, plus people we know well

Indirect Questions – these are more formal and polite. We use them when talking to a person we do not know very well, or in professional situations

Direct: Where is the car park?
Indirect: Could you tell me where the car park is, please?

Direct: What time does the restaurant open?
Indirect: Do you know what time the restaurant opens?
