    Why would anyone "send" you homework?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Suppose that I have a friend and he is a native English speaker. He is also a teacher. He always email me some homework to do.
    But yesterday, he forgot to email it to me.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    not a teacher

    Bearing in mind that 1 and 5 are identical, they all look OK to me.

    Re: Yesterday, you forgot to send homework to me

    Your suggestions are all grammatically correct but I would prefer "You forgot to email me my homework yesterday."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
