"Could you kindly explain the differences between the two similar words: decrease and decline? I'm always confused about how to use them properly."

Vicky Huang

In this programme we explore the differences between the words 'decrease' and 'decline'.

Although they can mean similar things, there are differences.

For example, look at these two sentences:

He thought about it for a long time, then he decreased the offer.

He thought about it for a long time, then he declined the offer.

Do you know the difference in meaning?

Listen to the programme to find out.
