Okay, so these verbs are very simple verbs, OK? To go home, to come home, to get home and to return home.

Very simple verb collocations with HOME, but very careful. As I said, you don’t use the proposition TO.

⚠️ We always use them without TO:

Remember to practise them and see whether you can get it right. But remember, don’t use that proposition TO.
