What is the correct way of commanding students in school assembly conduction, "step out from your line and come front" or "step of your line and come front" which one is the correct one?

"Step out from" or "step of" ?

  • You don't need from. Using out implies the motion involved. "Step out of (the) line and come forward." Use forward as this indicates motion.
