As you will notice, the verbs apporter and emporter are formed of the core verb porter and a prefix. It is therefore important to know the meaning of both components.
The core verb porter means "to carry", or “to wear” an item of clothing.
In apporter, the prefix "a-" is used to emphasize the destination.
Apporter means "to bring" something to a place, leaving it there. It does not apply to people, only to objects. For people, we use amener. (Please refer to my video on amener/emmener).
Apporter also means to provide or to give (to give support, for example).
In emporter, the prefix "em-" is used to emphasize the starting point.
Emporter refers to leaving a place and taking something with you. It does not apply to people, only to objects. For people, we use emmener (Please refer to my video on amener/emmener).
