Teacher’s comments

Sometimes English teachers can be worried about what comments to make their learners. They don’t want to say ‘Good’ all the time, but they are not sure what else to use. Often they will use ‘OK’—but that worries us because we know that it is a poor example to give the learners. It can make them very lazy with their English if they start to use ’OK’ all the time.
