What’s the difference between….?
You SAY something (to someone)
- Chris said, “I love you, mom.”
- Tom says he has a new car.
- I said that I was sorry.
You TELL someone (something)
- Chris told his mom that he loved her.
- Tom told me he had a new car.
- I told him that I was sorry.
*Exception with TELL:
- Tell + joke/story/lie/truth
- Mike is always telling jokes.
- She never tells the truth.
- He tells great stories.
