I can īt find the word in English
 
Hi, I would like to know how do you say in English "the student who is in charge of the class". Can anybody translate into english this?: El delegado de la clase o el encargado de la clase. Could it be "the master or the leader in the class or the teacher ...? Please, I need your help.

It does depend on the institution. Speaking as a teacher in a secondary school in England, we would have class reps (representatives) if anything at all, these days. If I split kids into teams for games, I allocate a team captain and I īve heard of schools with form captains. I think in primary schools, monitor is a possibility. Head girl and head boy (Hi Alex - long time, no see!) I think is a loftier position - maybe just one per school.

Thanks a lot. I think that "monitor" is the most suitable. I looked it up in the dictionary and it said "master".

an43,
A monitor has specific duties dealing with watching the other students for infractions, somewhat like a policeman. Your words "delegado" and "encargado" might carry this meaning, but I don īt think they necessarily do so. So, if the student is in charge of monitoring behavior, then "monitor" is the word you want. If not, then the others ī suggestions are good.
