Borrow and Lend

Published by My Lingua Academy on

Borrow” and “lend” often confuse English students. Even some native speakers make mistakes with these 2 words! Both words describe the action of somebody temporarily giving something to somebody else.

BORROW means that something is temporarily taken from another person.

Ex: Sally borrowed her dad’s car last night.

Simon borrowed 50$ from Sarah.

LEND means that something is temporarily given to another person.

Ex: Dad lent his car to Sally last night.

Sarah lent 50$ to Simon.
