BACK (TO): meaning and examples

Good morning.

Welcome to September, a month when many of us return to work or school after our holidays.

Today's expression is: back (to)

It means: to return. We often use it after the verbs go or come.

Example 1
I feel ready to go back to work after four weeks of holidays.

Example 2
I hope you come back to Barcelona soon.

Example 3
Can you come back* home when you've finished the shopping?

(*We do not use the proposition to before the word home.)

If you have children, you may decide to go to one of the back-to-school sales at a shop or a department store.
