    But I have seen the word "study" used in this sense. I have read in an English magazine, " When I asked some children studying in primary schools, they said that..."
    I'm just wondering why the writer used the word study while I was forbidden.
    Thanks

    Anglika has not forbidden you from using the word study. But you asked what you should say in a specific context, and she's given you the right answer.
    In another context, the answer might be different.
    If you ask a child "What class do you study in", they will look at you strangely and maybe run away. If they stay, however, they might say "Oh, you mean what class am I in?"
