    To “assure” a person of something is to make him or her confident of it. According to Associated Press style, to “ensure” that something happens is to make certain that it does, and to “insure” is to issue an insurance policy.

    assure 既意思係「向sb 保證」

    通常後面都會加pronouns

    另外通常都係用響passive voice

    ensure 則唔會加pronouns

    而且係active voice

    ....講解得唔係好details...你去yahoo 字典,比較下d例子, 可能會清楚d
