Look, if you're trying to teach preschoolers what the difference between a prepositional phrase and a subordinate clause is, you're going about this wrong.

3, No you can't. At my last job, I was required, quite often, to send emails out to all 200+ employees, nationwide. My boss took me to the side, after I had sent out my third one, and said I needed to word the emails as if a five-year-old was reading them. Apparently, an employee freaked out because she didn't know the difference bewteen "advice" and "advise." Sadly, that was just one of the hundreds of reasons. Ugh!

For all we know, OP could be using advanced technical terms or words that people don't . Instead of saying that people should take notes of what they are saying with pen or pencil to be able to remember it later, OP could be saying "You should inscribe this correspondence with the writing implement of your desires to enhance your ability to recall the things I have instilled later."

Actually yes, OP should make it simpler. It's their job to teach, not pontify fancy jargon over people's heads. That requires keeping with the students' pace.

I understand how you feel, but you have to learn your audience. It will make you a better teacher and trainer... and perhaps better at your own job. It may suck now, but it will payoff in the end.

Nothing like intellectual snobbery. Not everyone is intelligent as you but the point is they're on some sort of training or education course with you so they're trying to learn. Maybe give them a little more credit and respect instead of making fun of them for being stupid? No?
