1. Teacher shake me by the shoulder when I am sleeping in class.

2. The teacher shakes me by the shoulder when I am sleeping in the class.

(Is #1 right? What about #2? Do we have to use 'in class' or 'in the class'?)

  • English -

    No, #1 is not correct, but if you make the verb "shakes," it'll be correct.

    Just "in class" is all you need. The article "the" isn't needed.

    Teacher shakes me by the shoulder when I am sleeping in class.

    (Thank you for your help. The teacher ot Teacher? I think 'The teacher' is correct? Am I right? Can we use 'Teacher' in this sentence?)

  • English -

    The sentence is definitely better with "The teacher..." at the beginning, yes. I've heard the other wording, but not very often.
