    Default Please open your books ?? page 6.

    Dear everyone,

    Today I taught my first English lesson and I noticed that I have a really important question. Do you say:

    "Please open your books on page 6" or do you say

    "Please open your books at page 6"?

    In the net I also found the version "Please open your books to page..".

    Which one is correct?

    Thanks a lot.

    Teacher books tell us "...at page 6." Sometimes I meet " ....on page 6"
