Question.

Postby Maenga » Wed Mar 23, 2011 8:30 pm

To say 'class' which is the children going togather for learning lessons, I say class one, class two, class three etc. But some say class first, class second, class third etc. Which is grammatically correct?

Hi there,
Mmmmmmmm, as far as I know the more correct answer is First Class, Second class...etc
This is so because the classes are indicating levels, so as you say First level, Second Level...etc
you also apply this to student classes indicating levels.
Wish I answered your answer :D

First class, second class, third class, this is the right sequence also while talking about university we dont say first class we say first semester, second semester we dont say semester one or two etc. Hope it is understood.

In English, the school day in high or secondary school is generally divided into periods, not class. Thus, we say first period, second period, third period etc. When we say first class, second class, third class, etc. we're normally talking about socio-economic class, medals, awards, rank, degrees of service on trains and planes or whatever else of that nature. It is somewhat common, however, to hear things such as "my second class of the day is English." In universities, you'll hear "first class of the week" and never "period," since they don't all happen on the same day.

"First period" - American English.
"First class" - British English.
