Synonyms of "Homework" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I have not finished my homework yet. and I still have not finished my homework. ?
A: @tomomama: Fundamentally they mean the same thing. However, the second sentence, "I still have not finished my homework" could be interpreted as you've been doing the homework for awhile and it is still not finished. Adding the word "still" is what would imply it's taking awhile to complete. As an example a conversation that could happen would be:
"Hey Tomomama, have you finished the homework yet?"
"No. I still have not finished my homework. It is taking a long time to finish."
Q: What is the difference between he is done his homework. and he has done his homowork ?
A: @tomm: He is done his homework doesn't make sense because "is" is present tense while the rest of the sentence is past tense.
Past tense = He has done his homework
Present tense = he is doing his homework.

Hope this helps !
Q: What is the difference between homework and assignment ?
A: Homework is usually school-related. It's a relatively small amount of work students have to complete at home after school to submit (or to prepare for) next class. Example: answering a series of math questions from a textbook.

An assignment is generally a larger task or project that involves more work to complete and it does not have to be school-related. It's a project, task or duty that formally gets assigned to you and usually must be completed by a specified date/time.

A "homework assignment" may imply a small assignment that is to be completed as part of a student's regular homework.

In school or college, "homework" is not always graded (it may be optional or simply recommended in some cases) however assignments are always graded.
Q: What is the difference between I have to finish my homework within 50 min. and I have to finish my homework in 50 min. ?
A: "In 50 minutes" would mean 50 minutes from now.

"Within 50 minutes" would mean that you have a time limit of 50 minutes to do it but you could start doing it later or whenever you want.
Q: What is the difference between I had my homework done by my friend. and I had my friend do my homework. ?
A: The only difference I noticed is that the first sentence is in the passive tense and the second sentence is in the active tense.

Translations of "Homework"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Anyway,do your homework at fast.
A: I would say “anyways, do your homework already”
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? this is my homework : I must do a piece of theatre... There are any mistakes in my introduction?
A: It is July 3rd, 1994, in Rwanda. It is the evening, and Amanda, a young Tutsi, is about to go to bed when she hears a sound from the basement.
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? I'd like to write about my homework. I attend lots of different classes but I have little homework. I just sometimes have to hand out a report. So it's easy. Is it correct? Please correct if there are some errors.
A: I think it would be best as,

"My homework is easy. I attend lots of different classes, but don't have much homework. I just sometimes have to hand in a report."

> I'd like to write about my homework.

When Japanese people write English, it is common for them to start with, "I'd like to write about..." or "I'd like to talk about..."

This is natural English, but it isn't a good habit. You should remove it.

Instead, when writing in English, it is better to start with your main point. In Japanese you usually put your main point at the end, but in English you usually put it at the beginning. You could start by saying, "My homework is easy," and then explain why from there.

> I attend lots of different classes but I have little homework.

This is OK.

However, it is a habit of Japanese learners of English to use "little" more often than native speakers do. Also, "a little" and "little" have opposite meanings in this context, and because Japanese people often forget to say "a," it can be confusing to guess what the person means.

I recommend using "I don't have much" instead of "I have little." It is more natural and less confusing.

> I just sometimes have to hand out a report. So it's easy.

This should be "hand in a report."

>Is it correct?

"Is this correct?"

>Please correct if there are some errors.

"Please tell me if I made any mistakes."
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? If I had had done my homework earlier, I would have been relaxed (I would be relaxed) is it strange??

Or
If I had done my homework earlier, I would have time to relax.
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? If I had done my homework earlier,I would be relaxed today. is it strange??
A: Well it's a little strange to say it that way, but try saying this instead "if I had done my homework earlier I would've been able to relax for the rest of the day" it's kind of long though.

Q: He insist me to do my homework myself.

1. Koataro: Excuse me, where is the book fair?
Clerk: It's in ballroom C.

2. Kotaro: Excuse me, where is the bakery?
Clerk: It's on the second floor.

3. Kotaro: Excuse me, where is the movie theatre?
Clerk: It's near the police station.

4. Kotaro: Excuse me, where is the nearest post office?
Clerk: It's on Queens Road.

That's how I would put it. I'm not sure about what the Japanese writing mean as I can't read it well but from the English text it looks like this is how you would answer it.

Hope it helps!
Q: Not having done his homework, his teacher was very angry with him. does this sound natural?
A: "Not having done his homework, his teacher was very angry with him" is in fact grammatically correct, but it means the teacher was angry with someone because the TEACHER had not done his or her homework! A classic case of the first "his" being assumed to apply to "his teacher" and not to "him"!
Think of "Not having had time to eat his apple, his teacher was very angry with him", which implies the teacher didn't finish the apple.
has written what is really meant here.
Q: I forgot to have been my homework. does this sound natural?
A: @cgraham5610

This is also unnatural. I forgot to (verb) my homework.
