Hi Alan,

Our guest is probably referring to this sentence which appears earlier in the test:

Look at these three words:

Take someone to the station and leave them there.

Bring someone with you to a party means accompany them or come with them.

Fetch someone from the station means go to the station and bring them back to your place.

can we use the word "HOMEWORK" with " S" ? Is there any case that people use "HOMEWORKS" - is it popular?

No, homework is usually uncountable. You can say 'homework assignments' instead.

I've never in my life put an S on the end of the word 'homework'.

It's an uncountable collective noun.

However, you can say 'homework assignments', for example.

thank you, but I really do see people using Homeworks. It's the name of a website, why??

The word 'homework' is wrong. If you use it as the name of a website that's a different story.

I would expect a website or company with the name "Homeworks" to be connected with the construction industry or possibly home furnishings.

If you post a link to the website you're referring to, nguyenngocoanh, I can be more specific.

Hi Sandrital2006,

Below is my understanding of your query:

homework: it is a word about class when you a student.
home duty:this word is aboubt work plan in your home everyday.
housework: it only is a work in your home, for example:cleaning, cooking.
house job: I think it maybe is a job about house,like for example:make someone repair you house's ceiling.

Do you agree with me?

Thanks.
