I often give information and instructions to my tutorial group. According to orders and situations I give information about exams, studying process and instructions about visits to some places and practical work.

At school sometimes I gave instructions on how to do a job, I started by greeting my classmates and then I indicated step by step what was going to be done and how, listening to their new comments and considering them.

I always have to give information and instructions to my son. He is only 5 years old and depends of me to do many things, like eating, brushing his teeth, taking a shower, studying and etc

It's not so easy as it sounds to give information and instruction to 5 years old kid. I have two kids (8 and 3) and all my instructions seem to go to waste ((

I often give instructions for my husband to take care of my children, when I am not at home. And sometimes I received instructions from my colleague when we work team together. When we have a new project, we always give information to the customer. Now I am giving instructions for the internship at my office.

I often need to provide information to my parents about different things like new technologies and new places they don't know. And I usually give instructions to my younger brother about how should he continue his studies and take preparation for his examination.

I know it's really annoying when you teach your mother to use a mobile phone or smart TV. And you have to do it again and again. But, every time I lose my patience, I'm remembered how she needed to teach me to use a spoon or a pencil. So I calm down a bit, take a deep breath and begin my lesson again.

May I ask a question? What's the difference between "briefing" and "meeting" in a workplace?
