The difference between lend and borrow is the following.

Lend means to give something and borrow means to take something.

For example:

Could you give me some money, please? / Could you lend me some money, please?
She took some money from me. / She borrowed some money from me.

Hi, my name is Joanne, from H.K. passionate to improve my English to a native level.

Thanks in advance!

Though I am clear with difference of borrow and lend, but in the sentence it states" remember to bring it back", then I assume he lends the book to someone. :lol:

Hi Joanne,

Thanks a lot joining our forum. Yes, the person who borrows a book usually has to give it or bring it back. If you lend a book to somebody, you hope to get the book back. Let me know what you think.

Regards,
Torsten

Hi,

The correct sentence is John borrowed a/the book from me.

And your question should read Is this correct?

Regards,
Torsten

Hi,

Both are acceptable. (2) is more specific as it refers to the sentence.
