Hello,

I would like to know what is the difference between sure and certain.

Sure : it's about personal opinion
Certain : it's about facts

That's sound correct ?
If anyone has better explanation and could help me.

Thanks

    I always thought the difference was in style rather than in meaning with sure being less formal than certain.

    Anis, I'm not aware of such a difference between the two, and I use them interchangeably. I think it is a matter of preference more than anything else, as henrylee mentioned in post #2.
