    "He gives many homeworks" sounds a bit strange, doesn't it?

    I support Carly. The normal US phrase is "assign homework".

    Is "set" British? Perhaps this is another BE/AE difference.

    Hi Carly and GeorgeA
    Yet another of those little differences that keep us all entertained...
    penguin's suggestion sounds better to my ear ...

    Vorschlagset [BE] / give / assign [AE] a lot of homework
    Kommentar
    I agree that 'set' is BE. In AE, students might just say 'give,' though 'assign' is also fine.

    @susi: If you want to get a good grade on this homework assignment, you should remember that 'homework' is not a countable noun, so it can't be plural. (-:
