Bring or Take?

The verbs bring and take are often mistaken because they both describe the movement from one location to another.

The main difference is that bring describes movement toward someone or something:

I’ll bring some tea.

Pam brought a friend to the party.

We should bring a camera to the picnic with us.

On the other hand, take describes movement away from someone or something:

Take the empty cups back to the kitchen.

Take the rubbish to the bin.

I’ll take the dog out for a walk.
