Explanation:
Hola. Ahí va la mía: "Atráiga (llame) la atención del alumno sobre este punto preguntándole si existen ejemplos parecidos en su propio idioma". "Pointer" puede ser varias cosas (pista, consejo, indicación, indicador, ejemplo,...) pero en el contexto de la enseñanza yo me inclino por "ejemplos", quizás "indicadores". Suerte :-)

Haga que los estudiantes se den cuenta de este punto preguntándoles si existen ejemplos similares en su propio idioma.
