There’s a secret I want to tell you: home, downtown, here, and there don’t need prepositions with movement verbs! Easy to remember, right?
I hear this a lot: “When I go to home, I…” <-incorrect English makes teachers sad
Just remove the “to” and it is right: “When I go home, I…” <- correct English makes teachers happy
Here are some other examples:
- I came to downtown -> I came downtown.
- She flew to there. -> She flew there.
- He rode his bike to here. -> He rode his bike here.
Now you know. Go home, or take the train downtown, and tell your friends about it!
