    *Not a teacher

    I would say:

    I can help you learn English.

    Without in.

    Re: help in ??

    Actually a student was asked the question " who helps you in study at home ?". The answer she gave was " My mother helps me in study at home.".

    I just wanted to know if the question asked by the teacher and the answer given by the student are gramatically correct?

    The conclusion I drew after reading the replies on this thread is that there is no need to say in study. We can say " who helps you with studying at home or who helps you study at home?'.

    Please comment.

    sorry.......with studying doesnt make any sense here , I feel so :-S...can it be " who helps you with studies at home?'
