Dear teachers,

Would you share with me your opinion concerning the following sentences?


"Stop," he ordered.

He ordered them to come at once.
They ordered him (the man) to show them the way.
He ordered them (us, me, etv.) to wait until morning.
The director ordered the new machines to be tested at once.
The director gave orders that the new machines should be tested at once.
The director ordered that all the classrooms should be painted.
Thank you for your efforts.

Regards,

V.

Apart from the two comments above, the sentences are all good. With the final one, I don't think someone would order that something "should" be done. It's more likely that he actually ordered someone to paint them!
