    misread?

    hello, teachers:
    I am wondering if I use the right term.
    The scenario is that a student read sentences on the board.
    The sentence, for example, is "He is a student." but he read it like "She is a student."
    Is it right to say "Hi, you misread the sentence."?
    Thanks for your confrimation!

    Yes, that's fine.

    I'm not sure why you would say "Hi" and if you meant "Hey", it would be considered impolite. Again, if you meant "Hey" in order to get the person's attention to the mistake, it would be better to say something like, "Excuse me, but I think you misread the sentence."

    Thanks for your clarifications.
    I'm not sure why you would say "Hi"
    I want to express it in a light -hearted way but I realised that I misuse it after reading your clarification.
