A couple of possible corrections:

1) In the Ittekimasu section under Phrases, the section reads:

"This phrase (ittekimasu) is used whenever you leave the house to go somewhere (to school or work for example). This phrase is used like 'I'm off, see you later' in English. People to whom you say it will answer 'Itterasshai.' It literally means 'I come and go', so it conveys the idea that you are leaving for a moment only. You’re leaving, but you will come back."

The way its worded, it looks like it says "itterasshai" means 'I come and go.' The sentence "People to whom you say it will answer 'Itterasshai'" should be placed at the end of the paragraph to avoid confusion.

2) The definitions for "yoru" in the vocabulary are "to pay someone a visit" or to "visit someone." These definitions don't really seem to fit with the example text "kaeri ni suupaa ni yorimasu" or am I not understanding it?

Thanks your questions Clinch.

1) Yes you're right.

2) Yoru means also "to drop in", "to stop at", "to come near".

"kaeri ni suupaa ni yorimasu" means something like "I'll drop by the supermarket on my way home".

That makes much more sense. :)
