    be at home

    Hello, I'd like to ask my friend in an email who might have returned from his holiday if he is at home. I'm not sure what sentence and time to use.

    1/ Are you at home yet?

    2/ Have you been at home yet?

    Which sentence is correct?
    Or would a native speaker use a different sentence?

    thanks a lot.

    "Are you home yet?"

    Possibly British speakers say "Are you AT home yet?" but Americans say
    "Are you home yet?"
