Hi Guys,

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.

P1 + LOCATION = COME –> P2 + LOCATION

 

If the speakers are in the same location, use GO.

go and come 1.5

P1 + P2 + LOCATION1 = GO –> LOCATION2

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!
