    Question "I've got a class shortly" / "Don't call him that!" <- Are these wrong?


    I recently came across an article called 'The Grammar Wall Of Shame' which talks about how those teaching English in Japan starting to adopt the same incorrect grammar that they are trying to dissuade their students from using.

    The article ends with:
    It all started off as a way to poke fun at each other and keep the office environment lighthearted, but recently the list has taken on more serious proportions as it gets longer and longer everyday. And the funny thing is we are all experienced English teachers who have taught in Japan for many years.
    Recent quotes have even begun to include our students.“I’ve got a class shortly.”
    “Don`t call him that!”
    Are the last two sentences wrong?

    Thank you
