    Post Our faces or our face?

    Dear teacher,

    I'm a student from Taiwan. May I ask you a question, please?

    Here's the situation: In a classroom,
    teacher: Do you wash your faceS every day?
    students: Yes, we wash our faceS every day!

    Should I say "your faces/our faces" or "your face/our face"?

    Thanks!

    I would use the plural for both.

    No one will think that the children have more than one face each.
