My spanish teacher gave the same explanation over and over about reporting vs. presenting, but that really didn't click for me. Now that he won't speak in english or tolerate the class speaking in english, asking him has become even more pointless. So if any of you have any better or alternative explanations, I would greatly appreciate your help.
