Do you ever confuse when to use go and when to use come? These two movement describing verbs are often used in similar situations, but confer two very different meanings.
In this episode of RealLifeTV, I’m going to tell you the difference between the verbs come and go and give you some examples, so you never confuse them again!
Remember that there is a transcript below to help you understand everything
Aww yeah! Let’s get started:
Aww yeah, RealLifers! What’s going on?
This is Ethan with another video for you.
So, today I’m going to talk about something that my students tend to have a lot of difficulty with, and this is the difference between two verbs – go and come.
Is this RealLife?
So, go is any action that is away from the speaker, whereas come is the opposite, it’s an action that is towards the speaker.
All right, so let me give you a few examples to help you clarify this difference so that you won’t make this mistake anymore.
Are you coming to the party?

3. We’re going to the restaurant.
We’re coming to the restaurant.
So, last, I just want to talk about the phrasal verb come over. When you use come over, you’re referring to your house. So, you might tell someone, “Hey, do you want to come over later?” But it’ s not necessary to add “my house.”
Another example would be, “Do you want to come over later?”
So, this is something that we, native speakers, use a lot, and it’s very useful for you to know that people refer to their house when they say “come over.”
