Hello Teo,

The first sentence means "open your book and go to the pronunciation guide on page 4."
The second sentence is confusing because turn in means the same as hand over.

Hi again,

The 'in' in 'turn in your book to the pages of first section you are studying' should be removed to mean 'open your book and go to the pages of the first section you are studying'. By the way, you can certainly find the definition of 'turn in' in a dictionary.

Best,
Hoa Thai

Hi,

I don't quite understand what you are trying to say! If you think turn in does not mean hand in, hand over, or give over, I would like to hear your reason.
If you want to ask the meaning of that unfinished sentence then I can't! All I know from reading that site is the sentence is included under the heading " Five Things You'll Never Hear at Covenant Church. " - Whoever wrote that might think turn in is incorrectly used or page should have been Page.

CIAO,

Perhaps this is what the teacher in the other forum meant, but he doesn't like commas.
