Today I want to talk about another common mistake. Often, English learners can get confused when using “COME” and “GO.”
As an example, I will ask you a question:
Which one of these is correct?
1) I am going home.
2) I am coming home.
And the correct answer is…
…both 1 and 2 are correct!
Of course, both are not always correct. It depends where the listener is located.
If the speakers are in 2 different locations, then use COME.
If the speakers are in the same location, use GO.
It’s fairly simple really. Of course, practicing is the key to improving your English. So, practice often. Then you’ll know where you’re going… and where you came from!
