Tricky English Made Easy is a series to help students clarify concepts which are often difficult for learners of English.
The use of BRING-TAKE-CARRY / FETCH-GET is problematic for students since, in many cases, the same verb for the different concepts can be used in other languages.
CARRY is the easiest of all to explain since it involves TRANSPORTING WITH YOUR ARMS.
The other verbs are best explained in the picture above (to download) in which I tried to make an explanatory diagram and in this excellent video by Vicki Hollett Simple English Videos:
Come, Go, Bring, Take, Fetch, Get: Learn English with Simple English Videos
You can download the picture below.
I hope you find this diagram as useful.
