Would there be a lot of difference in meaning between these two sentences below?
anyone can cook
everybody can cook
Thank you once again.
I would say that "Anyone can cook" means that it is possible for any person to learn to cook, but that "Everybody can cook" means that all people know how to cook.
In a more restricted sense, if this is said in a kitchen or a classroom, then any person there is allowed to cook OR everybody there is allowed to cook.
Context is all!
So am I correct to assume that to lower-intermediate EASL learners in a classroom there won't be any difference at all.
(I'm sorry I'm a bit slow tonight)
thank you anyway, Anglika
