    invited all the class


    Don’t Say: “I invited all the class
    Say: “I invited the entire class.” (More Formal)
    Or: “I invited the whole class.” (More Informal)

    Why is 'all the class' wrong? I really cannot get it.

    Re: invited all the class

    Mainly because "all the" gives the idea of a number, but "entire/whole" doesn't.

    I invited all the people in my class.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
