PostSubject: Classroom language: 9 things you might be saying wrong.   18th August 2015, 11:08 pm

Hello everyone Very Happy
Have you ever say your order wrong in the class?

If you have, this topic are interesting for you.
I would like to shared classroom language: 9 things you might be saying wrong.


:flower:Here’s a list of 9 common grammar and vocabulary mistakes
that you must to be aware.

1. Open your books on page 20.
Use to instead: Open your books to page 20.
At is also possible in British English.

2. OK! Time’s over!
At the end of a game or timed activity, say Time’s up.

3. Do you want me to explain you the rule again?
 You explain something to someone:
 Do you want me to explain the rule to you again?
 Or simply: Do you want me to explain the rule again?
 Remember: Explain me / him / her etc. is wrong.

4. Pay attention in the example.
You should say Pay attention to the example.
You can also say Pay attention in class (=pay attention when you’re in class).


5. Today we’re going to discuss about politics.
  You discuss something, not about something:
  Today we’re going to discuss politics.

6. These are slangs.
   Slang is uncountable. Say These are examples of slang.
   Remember: a slang is wrong. Say a slang word / term.
   By the way, evidence is uncountable too.
   EX. Please find the evidence / a piece of evidence in the text.

7. I gave you a homework last class, didn’t I?
   Homework is uncountable. Say I gave you some homework.
   You can also say a piece of homework / two homework assignments.
   By the way, you can also assign homework.

8. Are you with your students’ book?
   It’s far more natural to ask Do you have your student’s book?
   By the way, different publishers call their coursebooks student’s book,
   student book or students’ book.  


9. Does anyone have any doubts?
   If you want to know whether students understood the new rules, for example,
   it’s more natural to ask Does anyone have any questions?
   In English, doubt usually implies a lack of belief or certainty rather than
   a lack of understanding: I have my doubts that the plan will work.


I hope this topic is useful for you.
You can adapt it in your class that's for different ages and levels of students.

Have a good day I love you

OMG!! I just already know that i used to say it wrong. Haha
I usually say 'open you book on page..' so, my students might remember it in wrong.
Next time, i will improve myself to be better.
Thanks so much Namtan. It helps me a lot.

Cool topic! I like it!
It's very useful topic for our teaching When we give the instructions of game/activity.
Sometimes, I confuse some sentences of the instructions when I teach them.
Therefore , this tips can help us when we teach in English Camp
and also when we become a teacher in the near future.
Thank you for sharing, I will bring your technique to use in class and English Camp.

I have another wrong usage that is
Ask question four to Raul, please.
Most verbs followed by two objects can take either to (She gave me a present = She gave a present to me) or for (She bought me flowers = She bought flowers for me). Ask is different. With ask, don’t use to or for: Ask Raul question four, please.

Wow! Love this so much.
Thank you very much for sharing. It's very useful for me.
I just knew that I use them wrong.
New times, I'll use these sentences in the class.
