Hi, I’m Dan from BBC Learning English and today I’m going to tell you the difference between those two confusing words history and story.

Both words are used for a description of events. So that makes them the same, right? Wrong! They are not the same.

History is the description or study of past events based on fact, often to understand their consequences. 'Christopher Columbus arrived in America in 1492.'

A story is the description of a series of real or imagined events, often to entertain people. 'After arriving in America in 1492, Columbus and his crew were attacked by a giant man-eating T-Rex dinosaur!' That didn’t really happen! It’s just a story.

So, history is a description of past events based on fact and stories are descriptions of real or imagined events, often to entertain.

用法总结
