Using home

Posted by Manjusha; You are here: Home > Practical English Usage > Using home

At home means ‘in one’s own place’. No article is used before the expression.

At is often dropped.

Home (without to) can be used as an adverb referring to direction.

There is no special preposition in English to express the idea of being at somebody else’s home. We often express the idea by using at with a possessive.
