Hello! I'm Emma from mmmEnglish!
If I put these verbs in front of you, you'd probably tell me
that they're simple!
They're easy! You know them, right?
These are simple verbs.
But they are quite similar to each other.
It could be hard to decide which one to use, sometimes.
So in this lesson, we'll take a closer look
at the differences between them
so that you can feel more confident when you use them.
Am I going?
Or am I coming?
These two verbs both describe movement between the person speaking and someone else.
Or something else.
But the difference is in the direction of the movement.
When you use come,
the movement is from somewhere else
to where the speaker is.
And when I say somewhere else,
that could be the other side of the world,
or it could just be the other side of the room.
It doesn't matter!
What is important is the direction of the movement.
From somewhere, to the speaker.
So in this case, it's me.
So it's from somewhere, to the speaker.
Are you coming to our house for dinner tonight?
Are you coming to Melbourne next month?
Tell me when you're coming to Australia.
Go is usually used when the movement happens in the
opposite direction.
From, where the speaker is
to another place.
Are you going to Thailand for the holidays?
So here, the speaker lives somewhere else,
not in Thailand.
And they're not in Thailand at the time of speaking.
Are you going to Ben's party on Friday?
So that's from the place, where you are
or you usually are, to Ben's party.
Now if I was at Ben's party and I called you,
I could say,
are you coming to Ben's party?
So I'm asking if you'll move
from the place where you are, to Ben's party.
So I used come.
So far, so good, right?
Now you might be talking about another person,
someone who is not the speaker
or the listener.
You're talking about other people.
Or something else.
And this is where things can get a little tricky!
Because you can use either come or go
Look at this example.
My mum came to help me.
So this is simple,
because I'm part of this activity.
She came to me.
But here, my mum went to help my brother.
My mum came to help my brother.
Now both of these sentences are correct.
I could use either come or go.
But it depends on whose viewpoint I take.
Which person, who's involved in the activity
am I describing or giving information about?
You use go when you're using the viewpoint
of the person doing the action.
My mum went to help my brother.
My mum is doing the action.
And you use come,
when you use the receiver's viewpoint,
the person who is receiving the action.
My mum came to help my brother.
So my brother is receiving the action.
So we've used come.
Now these two verbs are made much clearer
with a door.
'Come in' and 'go in' are both ways to instruct someone
to enter a room or a building.
But, there's a difference!
So now both you and I are outside together.
So I can say to you, "let's go in"
Let's go from where we are,
to another place, or inside.
Or when I'm inside, and you're outside,
I can say "Come in"
Move from where you are, towards me.
Come inside the house.
Okay so let's change the context.
Are you coming to Sarah's wedding?
So this suggests,
that the speaker will also be at the wedding.
Are you going to Sarah's wedding?
Now this suggests that the speaker
may be not going there.
Or maybe they haven't decided yet.
Are you going to visit your sister?
So that's in a place that is away from the listener's
current place.
Are you coming to visit your sister?
And here, we're being a bit more specific.
The listener is in a different place.
But, they'll move to the location of their sister.
And probably the speaker too.
So there you have it!
Some really important differences
to keep in mind about the verbs, go and come.
You thought they were simple,
but maybe you learnt
a couple of new things about using them.
