French question

Hello,
I wonder if anyone can explain the difference between emmener and amener? When I look them up in my dictionary, they seem to be synonyms and mean exactly the same thing but obviously there must be some difference or there would be no need for two words… My teacher, non-native speaker of French, couldn’t explain the difference.

Edit: The answer is here:
