You started by say 'How do we ask a student ...'How do we normally a ask a student to go to their seat during the class. If he's not sitting at?
Get onto your seat.
Go to your seat.
Go and sit on your bench.

Not correct idiomatically means that this is not how we use the language to ask people to sit down.
We use 'please' whenever we make a polite request, regardless of age.
That's why we specifically say please sit on the chair.
'On a chair' does not mean 'standing on it.' Your rear end, a book, a sleeping cat can all be on a chair, but they are not standing on it.Not. On a chair means standing on it. In a chair means seated.
Ok I understood. Thanks for detailed explanation. And what about get into your seat.'On a chair' does not mean 'standing on it.' Your rear end, a book, a sleeping cat can all be on a chair, but they are not standing on it.
'Sit on a chair' means that your rear end is on the chair.
'Stand on a chair' means that your feet are on the chair.
I have no problems with the suggestions, I just want to know the possible ways of saying that and also where I can use those in what circumstances all for only learning purpose and to avoid mistake.What's the matter with "Please sit down (again)?' We suppose that the student will go back to his seat, bench, or place on the floor.
I do think manners and courtesy are important because they are part of the culture the language is used in. I have noticed that Asians (people from the Indian subcontinent) tend to speak English very peremptorily. For example being told to "Sit down!" can be annoying if you choose to react to it.
If people are used to ordering food and drink using the imperative idiom acceptable in their own language, they might find that the serving staff don't respond readily. "Give me two beers!"
It's often seen here on the forum: "I want to know ...". How about "I'd like to know, please?"
