    Question Can you say: "open the text on the page..."?

    As in a subject.. Is it correct? I think I heard that in American movies.

    American teachers often say something like Okay, class, open your books to page 137.
    I am not a teacher.

    British teachers tend to say 'Turn to page 45'.

    You're welcome, but there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you". Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves everybody's time.
