Homework Help: FRENCH

Posted by E.G. on Tuesday, March 31, 2009 at 6:17pm.

I know that "prendre" and "emporter"(for portable items) both mean "to take" but somehow I have the feeling that they are not synonymous.
Is it correct to say:
"je prends un livre de la table"(I take a book from the table)
but "j'emporte un livre à l'école"
(I take a book to school).
"Je prends un verre de l'eau"
(I take a glass of water)
"j'emporte un verre de l'eau à ma mére".
(I take a glass of water to my mother.)
Thank you!
