  • Welcome back to BBC Learning English!

  • I'm Sam and today we're looking at the difference between come back and go back.

  • They both mean to return, but we use them differently.

  • We use come back when we return here.

  • So, for example: I am in the BBC building now.

  • Tonight I will go home, and tomorrow I will come back here - like a full circle.

  • We use go back to mean that we return there.

  • For example: I am at work now, and tonight I will go back home.

  • I am not at home now, but tonight I will go backhalf the circle.

  • So, please come back to BBC Learning English for more videos!
