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 return here.

So, for example, I'm 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 we will return there.

For example, I'm at work now and tonight I will go back home.

I am not at home now, but tonight I will go back. Half the circle.

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

Gone back’ means that we have left somewhere to return to a previous location.

Sorry! She’s not here now – she’s gone back home to collect some documents.

After we ‘go back’ somewhere, we might return to our original location. We can use ‘been back’ to show that our journey is completed.
