    Cool write /write down

    Hello!

    In this case, can we interchangeably use the verbs "to write" and "to write down"?:

    -I'm going to write/write down these words on the board.

    Thank you
    W

    In general we "write" or "write up" on the board. We "write/write it down on paper" and we "write/write it up on the board".
