Freeform Writing Exercise B1
That's an excellent question!
"abîmer" -> to damage / wreck something concrete
Il a abîmé mon sac à dos = he damaged my backpack
Quelqu'un a abîmé mon vase = someone damaged my vase
"gâcher" = to spoil / ruin something (not tangible)
Tu gâches mon plaisir = you spoil / ruin my enjoyment
Elle a gâché l'anniversaire de tes enfants = she ruined your kids' birthday
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
gâcher is also more like "spoil" in English.
