Borrow vs Lend - English Grammar - Teaching Tips
In this video Linda discusses the difference between two words that are often confused: borrow and lend. Because the two words have similar meanings it makes it hard to identify the correct word, especially for non-native speakers. The difference is solely down to perspective. Borrow is a verb that means to receive something from someone with the expectation that you will return it to them. While lend is also a verb, it means to give something to someone with the expectation that they will give it back to you. Therefore, you need to make sure you use the right word depending on the perspective.
