"how come you went to school without your coat today??"
"how come" is used to ask how or why something has happened and is super informal but used on a daily basis in the UK. You can usually replace the word "Why" with "how come"and it will mean the same thing. It is a fixed expression so doesn't become "how came" etc, the expression is always "how come" whether you are talking about the past, present or future.
"how come you didn't do your homework?"
"how come your learning russian?
"So how come you missed the train?
Now it's your turn! Try using "how come" in a sentence and I'll correct any mistakes 😁😁😁😁
