       How'd you people ask students to "alinhar", "ficar em fileiras" in a classrrom? "In rows, please?" "Line up, guys?"


   Oh, superbly done Fran!
   After having read it, I think you hit the nail in the read, spot on.
   The problem was the question itself, the imagery I had when it was posed was that
of kids within the classroom, so I restricted the answer too much in this case.
    Let´s say I understood "ficar em fileiras" in the sense of arranging the desks in rows, in contrast to arranging them  in a circle (the way they do in Universities, for pedagocical purposes).

 

    My fault too that in haste I didn´t notice the "line up" there (in the question), if I did, maybe I would see that Jazz wanted something in the sense of "fazer fila/ficar em fila/formar um fila".
    Anyway, I am happy that you corrected it in time, nice teamwork.
    Now a minor correction, after rereading it: it would be "classroom" not classrrom (with two Rs and a single O), as in the original sentence/question.  Not that others wouldn´t understand it, maybe it was simply a typo of Jazz, but in some cases (crosswords for example) this may be of importance.

 

     Again, Fran, well played.   If wasn´t you, I had not noticed that important detail.
