When teaching English, the goal of a teacher is to use as much of the target language as possible.
One of the most frequent ways that language is used is in the daily routines; these are referred to as classroom language
When we use classroom instructions or commands, we can use polite ways to give instructions.
These are some examples of polite ways to give instructions in English.
- Could you please close the door?
- Could you please answer the questions?
- Could you repeat that?
- Can you answer these two questions?
- Can you open the door in page 54?
- Can you say that again?
- Would you mind closing the window?
- Would you mind putting the cellphone inside your pocket?
- Do you mind if I sit next to you?
- Do you mind if you two work together?
- Please listen to the recording
- Please pay attention to your classmate presentation
- Please raise your hand
