    Question 'I have less problem teaching doing it then student doing it.

    Hello,
    I do not understand the meaning of a sentence.

    'I have less problem teacher doing it than student doing it.''

    What is the meaning of this sentence? Does it mean the person has less problem when students doing it OR when teacher doing it?

    Thanks

    Re: 'I have less problem teaching doing it then student doing it.

    It's a badly written sentence, but the person has fewer problems or less of a problem with the teacher doing it.

    Thank you..

    Is it a good sentence?

    ''I organized a conference in Rotterdam with the theme of ''Women in Media".

    Do I have to use - of or without? Or both are possible?

    This appears to be unconnected to your original question but since it's a quick question, I'll stick an answer here. It's fine with or without "of".

    "...with the theme "Women in Media".
    "...with the theme of "Women in Media".

    I prefer it without "of".
