  1. Hello, Tony I can also say:
    I asked them not to tell anybody anything
    or is it better to use to say?
    I always confuse the two verbs.


    1. Hi Giovanna.
      You have two possibilities here and both are equally good:
      1) …not to tell anybody anything about…
      2) …not to say anything to anybody about…
      The important thing is to use the right construction with each verb! 😉


    1. A good effort, Luca, but be careful with ‘say’ and ‘tell’. You have two possibilities here and you have mixed them!
      1) …not to tell anybody anything…
      2) …not to say anything to anybody…

      Also, you should use ‘about’ (riguardo) and not ‘of’.
