    I'll drop you home.

    Hi teachers,


    I'll drop you home. Is it correct or we have to use "at" before home?
    Can I also use "get" in place of "drop"?


    Many thanks.

    It's correct. You could use "at" before "home" but most native speakers (BrE) wouldn't. If you change "drop" to "get", you will change the meaning. I could say to someone "I'll get you home" and I might mean "I'll pay for your bus fare" or something similar. If I say "I'll drop you home", I mean "I will drive you to your house".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
