    Hi there,
    Am I correct to say like this?

    Students, don't sit at the back. There are a lot of seats at the front here. Move to the front, please.


    (The seats are not moveable)
    (How about in a lecture theatre where the floor is a slope? Can I still say 'move to the front' OR just say 'sit to the front'?)

    many thanks

    Okay and okay.

    You could say both but the first is the more common, I'd say.

    many thanks
