Hello again. I hope you are having a nice day.

Today we will review the differences between the verbs LEND and BORROW.

Meaning: To give someone something for a limited time, expecting they will give it back to you later.

Structure: to LEND someone something OR to LEND something TO someone

Can you lend me money for a taxi? I left my wallet at home.

Meaning: To receive and use something that belongs to someone else, and agree to give it back to them later.

Can you believe that? Mark borrowed money from me again, this time for a taxi. He never lends me money when I ask, but he always asks me for money!

Have a good day!
