Difference between “приготовить”, “подготовить”, etc.

Asked by Omar on May 29, 2018


What is the difference between the verbs
Готовить, приготовить, подготовить, готовиться, приготовиться и подготовиться
And what cases "падежи" come after these verbs


Hello! Готовить means "to prepare" or "to cook". Приготовить is the perfective aspect of this verb in both meanings. Подготовить is the perfective aspect of the verb готовить, but only in the meaning "to prepare". Подготовиться normally implies the process of preparation, приготовиться implies the result, "to get ready".
