Here’s a quick review of how to use these three words:
1. We use say + the person’s exact words. You can use the exact words in written English like this:
- Jack said, “I had pizza for lunch.”
2. We also use say + the person’s words in spoken English this way. Note: using that after said is optional.
- Jack said that he had pizza for lunch (or) Jack said he had pizza for lunch
3. We use tell + listener + the person’s words this way. Note: using that after tell is optional.
- Jack told me that he had pizza for lunch (or) Jack told me he had pizza for lunch
4. We use tell + listener + about + the topic like this:
- Jack told me about his lunch.
5. We use talk + to + listener and talk + about + topic like this
- Jack talked to me about his lunch.
