Magoosh Comics: “Among” and “Between”

###
Announcement! As of August 1, 2019, the TOEFL Reading, Listening and Speaking sections will be shortened. The TOEFL will also make changes to its prep materials and scoring system. Because of this, some of the info in our blog posts may not yet reflect the new exam format. We cover all the changes here.

I recently wrote a post explaining the rules for using “among” and “between,” with examples and a diagram. If you review my post, you’ll recall the following rules:

  • “Among” and “between” are used to describe something that is shared by two or more things or positioned in the middle of two or more things.
  • “Between” is the only word you can use to describe something that is shared/positioned in relation to a small, specific group of things.
  • When something is shared by or in the middle of a large, more general group of things, it’s OK to use “among” OR “between.”

Once you’ve reviewed my original post and the above rules, read the comic strip below. This comic can help you really memorize and master the use of these two words!
