English term or phrase: my homework
my name is baba,
I am 18 and i speak french.
baba
French translation:mes devoirs or mes travaux scolaires
Explanation:
these are the terms used! ¨je me suis préparé¨ has absolutely nothing to do with this sentence. Also, ¨devoirs à domicile¨ is a word to word translation if you used this term you'll probably fail!
Hope this helps

mon devoir


Explanation:
Voici la traduction littérale que vous trouveriez dans tout bon dictionnaire bilingue. Il serait utile d'avoir un contexte pour être sûr de l'exactitude de la traduction.
Bonne chance!

je me suis préparé(e)


Explanation:
Si il ne s'agit pas de devoirs...l'expression "I did my homework" signifie souvent je me suis bien préparé(e): j'ai lu les dossiers, je me suis renseigné(e) etc

mes devoirs


Explanation:
C'est comme ça que l'on dit...
==> faire ses devoirs (ce que l'on doit faire chez soi après les cours)
- "un devoir" serait plutôt un devoir sur table (en classe), donc un travail que l'on ne fait pas à la maison.

Je m'appelle Baba, j'ai 18 ans et je parle français.


Explanation:
I've given you the answer to your homework. don't forget you will be tested on this, too, so use it to study from. Also, please go back over your chapter(s), to make sure that this is the wording your teacher will be expecting--and that **you** need to learn. You have three verbs in this sentence: s'appeler, avoir (+ X ans), and parler. Look at how they end when used with *je*, and compare that with the endings for the infinitives [= name of an action] I just gave you. And look at the position of the verbs in the sentence.


    In case you haven't figured out, I am a French teacher. :-))
