| | Re: the use of 'how come' inside a sentence
I wouldn't teach 'how come' at all. If students came across it themselves, I would explain what it meant of course but I am surprised it is in a book as a phrase to be learnt; it is not particularly good English. I agree with you, Mark, that the examples you've quoted are particularly bad. My advice would be to use another book!
