Bring/fetch/take

bring — to come towards the speaker, writer, etc carrying sth or accompaying somebody
fetch — to go and get something or someone and bring them back
take — to move or go with someone or something from one place to another (opposite of bring)

Note: In American English get is used instead of fetch.

Bring shows movement toward the speaker:
bring —-> speaker
Take shows movement away from the speaker:
speaker —-> take

Разница в глаголах зависит от места нахождения говорящего. Обычно take — это движение OT говорящего, a bring — K нему. Fetch обозначает движение OT и K, то есть пойти за чем-то и вернуться с этим обратно.
