Hi, Teachers!,

I'm sure you, teachers, already use most of these sentences in your English class, but I just want to refresh our memory and post these common expressions. If you use others, I'll be pleased to add them to this list! They are really functional for our students, they feel more comfortable when they see these sentences on a poster in class, they look at them and speak up!

Your students and you, as a teacher, can also create your own list to encourage them to speak up, learn new words, refresh their memory, and so on. Now, are you ready? 1,2,3, GOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

I've chosen 30 sentences, I know there are more, but there could be enough for our students, then, we can add new others.
