Do we use the structure "help yourself at home" in English?
My English teacher said that this sentence was very common in spoken English but I don't think so. Could you please help me figure out the answer?
Thanks in advance!
Is the phrase different from Make yourself at home?
Yes.My teacher meant 'make yourself at home". That's why don't agree with her.
"Help yourself" and "Make yourself at home" are two very common AmE expressions, and have a similar meaning, but "Help yourself at home" is definintely not.
