  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 383. The title of today's lesson is the

  • incorrect use of "handle with. " Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. In

  • English the word "handle" in most cases means "deal with. " So we usually don't say

  • "handle with" because if you say handle with it's almost like saying deal with,

  • with which really would not make any sense. All right. So let's look at a couple

  • of examples where students might make a mistake. All right. Again here with the X,

  • this is wrong. In order to become a kindergarten teacher, she had to learn

  • how to handle with children. No. of course, with the check this would be

  • correct. In order to become a kindergarten teacher she had to learn

  • how to handle children. Good and the second one here. Again with the X. This

  • would be wrong. Many people think corporal punishment is not the way to

  • handle with discipline. No again. You should say many people think corporal

  • punishment is not the way to handle discipline. Okay. So I hope that's clear.

  • So you can see where students sometimes would make a mistake by using handle

  • with where they should only be using handle. However since we said that. There

  • are a couple of exceptions, but they're usually with fixed phrases. So however the

  • phrase is' handle with care' and ' handle somebody or something with the kid

  • gloves' are exceptions. Okay. Handle with care is often written on

  • fragile packages. So you just have that as a sentence you know, write handle with

  • care on that package. So to make sure that somebody doesn't just throw the bag

  • or the box around or the package around. So the things inside will not break. You want

  • them to be handled with care , very carefully. Or the second one here. Handle

  • with kid gloves means to handle something with extreme care. It could be

  • a person or a situation too. You need to handle this issue with kid gloves. Maybe

  • it's a very sensitive issue. So handle it with kid gloves,

  • be very careful what you say or how you say about it . Okay. Good.

  • Anyway I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
