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.
