            Learner            ‘Yes, it is.’

Teacher’s comments

Sometimes a teacher 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’. It can make them very lazy with their English if they start to use ’OK’ all the time. Here are some other expressions:

 

 

                                   ‘Excellent!’

                                    ‘Very good!’

                                    ‘That’s  excellent!’

                                    ‘Very well done!’

 

                                   ‘Good!’

                                    ‘That’s good!’

                                    ‘Well done!’

                                    ‘Great!’

                                   ‘That’s it!’

                                    ‘Yes!’

                                    ‘OK!’

 

                                   ‘Not quite right—try again!’

                                    ‘Not quite right—will someone else try?’

                                    ‘Not quite right! Andi, you try!’

 

                                  ‘No—That’s not right—try again!’

                                    ‘No—that’s not right—will someone else try?’

                                    ‘No—that’s not right! Tina, you try!’

1)      Yes, …

2)      No, …

3)      Perhaps; well; maybe.

4)      I don’t know. I can’t remember.

5)      You must be joking; what do you think? etc.
