**GETTING QUESTIONS FROM
YOUR STUDENTS**

__"I don't know."__

Good for the one off question just to make a point and ensure that the student is with you and capable of making minimal manipulations of the material in hand.

T What kind of car do I have?

S I don't know!

T Question.

S What kind of car do you have?

T I have a Ferrari.

or at a more advanced level:

T How long did it take me to get used to
driving on the right?

S Maybe a few weeks?

T Well, ask me?

S How long did you take ....

T (interrupting) How long did IT....
.

Here the student has slipped into a common mistake. The teacher puts him back on track but leaves the student to finish the question.
