    Wink Look who is lecturing....

    Is the following sentence correct?

    'Hey John, look who is/are lecturing us on not making fun of anyone.'

    Note that there is more than one person lecturing us. 'Is' or 'are' : Which one should I use?

    I'd use ​is.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Look who is lecturing....

    Although "who is" is grammatically complete, it would be far more natural to hear "Look who's ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
