    compete

    Dear teachers,

    The following is from my dictionary. Does it mean 'compete against and compete with' are exactly the same meaning?

    1. It's difficult for a small supermarket to compete against/with the big supermarkets.

    2. Turn the music down - I'm not competing against/with that noise.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Re: compete

    They are both good expressions. I can't see any difference in meaning between the two, and I'd say they're equally common.

    regards
