Bring or take?

Bring or take?Hello there,

How are you? Are you enjoying the summer?

One thing we love doing during the summer is camping.

Do you like camping? It is very nice once you are there, but getting ready to go camping can be quite a lot of work and that’s the part I do not like…

There are so many things to bring.

Or should I say to take?

Well, deciding when to use to bring or to take is not as difficult as it seems. It all depends on whether you are going or not, and this is what you are going to learn today.

Both verbs have very similar definitions generally meaning to move something or someone from one place to another, so when to use which?

Let me give you an example…

One thing you should not forget when you go camping is a lantern.

Bring or take

And if you and your friends are going camping you should also remember the batteries, so you would tell them…

Please remember to bring the batteries.

But, if your friends are going camping and you are staying home you would then say.

Please remember to take the batteries.

Easy, isn’t it?

To bring means to take something with you from one please to another and have it with you when you arrive.

So, if you go camping this summer, please take all the things you will need and bring back some nice memories of the trip…
