I went to a class as a substitute teacher and I asked them.


How long/far did your madam teach you in her last class.

How long/far did your madam give lesson on chapter 5 in her last class.


Please correct my sentences grammatically. Thanks in advance.

How far (in this book / in chapter 5) did you get in your last class?
Where (in this book / in chapter 5) do we need to start today?


It would be a good idea not to use the word 'madam' in English. One of its very well known definitions is "a woman who runs a house of prostitution (a place where men pay for sex)". (MacMillan Dictionary)

Native speakers don't normally use the highlighted part as you have.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Then what should I say "teacher"

Can you correct my other versions??

Yes, it's OK in India, but it doesn't work well in North America. Emotion: wink

Many native speakers of other languages make funny mistakes when learning English. Yours is not the worst. It happens sometimes so, don't worry and keep trying.
