Indirect questions Косвенные вопросы

We usually use indirect questions when we want to sound more polite or we presume that our interlocutor might not know the answer to the question. Indirect questions are formed of two parts: polite phrase and the actual question. The question part of the sentence should be structured in affirmative word order.

Some examples of polite phrases:

  • I wonder …
  • I was wondering …
  • Do you have any idea …
