Bring vs Take | Ask Linda! | English Grammar

In this video, Linda breaks down the difference between the usage of “bring” and “take”.

The terms “bring” and “take” are often confused as both words describe the movement of something from one location to another.

The word “bring” describes the movement of something toward a specified location.

For example:

Can you bring some snacks to the party tonight?

“Take” on the other hand generally describes the movement of something away from a location, such as here:

Do you want to take any leftovers home?

So next time you’re unsure think about the direction of the movement and it should be clear which word to use.

That’s it for today. See you next time!
