    'Please, sir, can you start the course earlier?'

    Better still - find out his name and say 'Mr Whittington, can you please start the course earlier?'

    Thank you
    Can I say the same sentence if I want him to change the time of the course
    and make it start at 6:30 instead of 7:30?
    and how can I say it in another way to make it clear?

    If you're asking your tutor or one-on-one teacher, you should use lesson, not course.

    If it's a class, use class.

    Re: How can I say

    Why do you take a convesation course ( although you are very good at grammar, writing, and even reading)?



    Please, how can I answer this question?
