“The teacher called on me for the hardest question.”

To “call on” someone can mean to ask them for help, or ask them to do something.

In a classroom, however, it’s what the teacher does when they ask you to answer a question. This meaning is probably more useful in everyday life.


誰かを「call on」とは、助けを頼む、何かをするように頼むことです。
