    Cool turn around or over

    Hello!

    Do we say: please turn the page, turn the page over or turn the page around?

    Thank you very much
    Will

    Turn the page is correct.

    Not a teacher.

    Yes, it is, but the other two could also be correct in the right context.

    Re: turn around or over

    Will, if you want somebody to turn to the next page of a book or magazine, say 'Please turn over.'

    If you don't mean that, tell us what you do mean.

    Cool Re: turn around or over

    Thank you all.

    I would like to say this during a presentation, to ask the audience to go to the next page of the report I'll give them.

    Thank you

    Re: turn around or over

    Right.

    'Please turn over' or 'please turn to the next page' or 'On the next page I have given an analysis of. . . ' will all have the desired effect.
