Bring and Take
Bring and Take are very easily confused as their meanings are similar. To prevent confusing these two words, remember that Bring means to carry something towards yourself, while Take means to carry something away from yourself.
Example 1 (bring–correct usage)
- Bring the supplies to my house so we can work on the project.
Note that in the sentence above, the direction of the action is towards the speaker.
Example 2 (take‐correct usage)
- Take the supplies to your house so we can work on the project.
In Example 2, take, rather than bring, is used because the direction of the action is away from the speaker.
