Near and Close
Hola!! cuando usar Near y cuando Close? Thanks.
I am near the kitchen; I am near to the kitchen; I am close to the kitchen. All the same
I am near to my mother (I am standing next to her) I am close to my mother (we love each other and talk every day)
The end is near (set phrase), never the end is close
Don't stand so close to me (common), Don't stand so near to me (much less common)
Hold me close (hold me tightly), never hold me near
