I am an assistant professor at the University, faculty of criminal law. I usually give information or instructions to my students during the class or after class via an email. But sometimes it is necessary to share some information about the incidents and situations of faculty with my boss or other professors or even some staff of university.
All these information or instructions will be about the quality teaching and obeying the rules of university. Some of them will be about paying salary which is unfortunately a big problem in our university.

I give instrucción to my subordinates, on the subject of quality, because I am the director of the quality department. Also, I instruct my dogs, about for where walking, cath the ball, sit them. when eat, when to go for a walk, etc.

As I'm a medical student, I often give information and instructions to patients. It includes about the disease conditions they suffer, side effects of drugs they should know, what they should avoid to recover from the disease and changing their lifestyle to become healthy. But I'm not a doctor and just a medical student now. So there are a lot of new things to learn and I have little chance to give information and instructions to patients.

I used to give informations to my colleagues at work about our duty and tasks in the services and how to introduice some informations to customers.
I also gave informations to introduice beneficiaries meeting and gave informations for planning, monitoring and evaluation

This information may be given by leader of team or teacher. they organised this activity, and made a plan for everyone how to prepare this activity.

Sometimes I give informations to my classmates

It is normal for me. And you

This was very useful and it improved my writing skills!!!

I usually give some instructions to the designer at work. The instuctions relate to the structure of client site pages.

It was useful for me. And you?
