On "Take A Seat"

It was in a small town where English is a language that is rarely spoken. We were giving a presentation to some school children. The presenter was ready to begin. Standing in front of the group, he said "OK. Could you all please take a seat," indicating that they should all just sit on the floor. All the children made they way to the corner of the room where some chairs were stacked. The next ten minutes were spent waiting for children to neatly arrange the chairs. You need to be careful what you say sometimes.
