If our teacher or the meeting leader makes some incorrect statements during their speech, I prefer to talk to them until the speech is over rather than correct them at once or say nothing.
Firstly, it is not polite to interrupt them right away. We ought to be aware that our teacher or the meeting leader has made efforts to perform well in a classroom or a meeting. Their incorrect statement may attribute to that they are nervous without notcing that they have made a mistake. If we correct them right away, not only will they get embarrassed, but also their following speech will be influenced. So it is wise for us to wait until the speech is over.
Although it is not a good choice to interrupt our teacher or the meeting leader right away, we should not ignore their mistake. On one hand, the teacher and the leader need to know that they have say something incorrect and take measures to correct the mistake. If we say nothing about their mistake, they may not be aware of their mistake and leave a bad impression on students or employees. On the other hand, the statements made by teachers or leaders in a classroom or a meeting matter a lot to students or employees, which may make them consider the incorrect things to be correct and even cause a misunderstanding. Therefore, we should make the mistakes exposed to themselves instead of saying nothing.
Talking to the teacher or the leader until the speech is over can be the best thing to do. In this way, we can avoiding interrupting their speech, making sure that the speech goes on well. Meanwhile, this motion shows our respect for the teacher or the leader. What is more, talking to them until the meeting or class is over provides us with enough time to prepare for our statement that they have said something incorrect. As a result, they will take our statement seriously.
