Siediti composto / siediti composta


Explanation:
In questa espressione inglese si intuisce la richiesta di un educatore / genitore a comportarsi nel modo corretto.
La traduzione letterale "Siediti in posizione eretta" potrebbe essere la traduzione corretta per una istruzione impartita durante una lezione di ginnastica.
