    Default How to say?

    If you are a student, living in a dormitory, every weekday you have dorm supervisors go in your room, examining that if you have had the floor cleaned, the quilts folded, etc. Can I say, "the supervisors inspect our dorm every weekday"? Does it express what I want to say? If not, how should I say this in one or a few sentences? (I think there may be some more proper way to say that) And, how to call this practice? (dorm inspection?)

    Thank you very much. :)

    Yes. It's called a dorm inspection. :D

    They/She/He inspect(s) our room daily/every single day/once a day.
    Our rooms are inspected daily/every single day/once a day.
    The dorm supervisor inspects my room once a day.

    They carry out a dorm inspection.
    They do a room inspection/an inspection.

    our rooms (means, everyone's room)
    our room (means, mine and my mate's room)

    All the best, :D
