Is "to GIVE classes" correct?

I've been told by a teacher (native - UK) it's WRONG (according to him, we should say "teach classes"), although I hear teachers (BR) say "give classes" all the time.

Is it right or wrong?
Many thx

Acho bem comum um professor dizer "I'm giving a class in writing skills", por exemplo. Esse "class" pode significar uma sessão única ou uma série de aulas, um curso.

thanks a lot :)
It is correct to say "to give a class". Maybe it is just not used in the UK, which I am not sure about.

One can use both, teach or give classes.
Maybe he´s afraid of using the word "give", so you don´t think you may think he won´t charge for them! :lol:
