    assign designate

    Hello, can you help me with how I should use assign or designate?

    For example, which word between assigned and designated best fits into the blanks in the following sentences?
    A room was ______to soccer players.
    This monument was ______ a UNESCO world heritage.

    Re: assign designate

    I think 'assigned' in the first sentence and 'designated' in the second sentence. Am I right?

    Yes, a room would be "assigned to," but "designated for."
