    Default pull the curtain

    hi teachers,

    i want to know if one says "pull the curtains",does he mean "covering up" or "uncovering up" the windows? or it can be used to mean both ways?


    thanks

    That would depend on if he meant "pull the curtains back" (open them) or "pull the curtains together" (close them).

    BTW, we do not use the term "uncover up" in English. "Uncovering" is fine.
