About the sentence

to hand sth in

When you hand something in, you give something to someone who is an official or in a position of authority. If you find a wallet in the street, you would hand it in to the police. When a student finishes their work at school, they hand it in to their teacher.

This phrasal verb can be used when you decide to leave your job - you hand in your notice. In this case, you give your resignation letter to your boss or manager.


Notice the structure 'before doing sth'. With before/after, we can use a noun, a gerund or a clause. e.g. Before lunch/before eating lunch/before I eat lunch.
