Direct QuestionsDirect questions are the “normal” questions thatwe can ask friends, family members, and peoplewho we know well. Example of a direct question: “Where’s the bathroom?” “What’s up?”
Indirect Questions (p. 35) Indirect questions are a little more formal and polite.We use them when talking to a person we don’tknow very well, or in professional situations, and their form is a little different. Example of an indirect question: “Could you tell me where the bathroom is?” “How are you today?”
Difference: Direct vs. Indirect Direct Indirect Begins with: Phrases:• Who • Could you tell me…• What • Do you know…• Where • I was wondering…• When • Do you have any idea…** How ** • I’d like to know… • Would it be possible… • Is there any chance… In general: Any question which does not start with “Wh” is indirect
