My dear and respected teachers,
1: "I just take a cup of tea in the morning not during the day." correct?
2: "It was my mistake to send you a text message". correct?
3: "Today he asked me if he loved you'' It's grammitacally correct but it refers to the past. I think Native English speakers use "Today he asked me if he love you'' in spoken English'' Am i right?
Please teach me properly because this kind of sentences confuse me.I'll be very grateful to you.

Just to make sure that you are saying in #3 what you mean to be saying.

You have person A, who is speaking.

You have person B, who is being spoken to.

You have person C, who is the "he" in the question.

A tells B that C asked A if C loves B. Is that what you meant? Did C expect the person he asked to know whether he himself (C) loves someone else?

Or is there a person D? C asked A if D loves B?

Hey, the first one looks gramatically fine, however, it would be better off like this:

1 - I just have tea in the morning, never during the day.

The second one is perfect.

Concerning the last one, you're right, here you have reported speech and this is the correct form: He asked me if he loved you. But, in everyday language we go like: He asked me if he loves you, and it's totally fine.

C ya buddy.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Thanks
