I was talking to one of my friend about a student who came in to our class and took an extra chair away. My friend corrected me and said, "you mean a spare chair?" and I replied, "yes we have so many of them in our class and they're taking up alota lot of room." I didn't ask him if there was any difference between an extra chair and a spare chair.

I looked up the words and I don't see any difference at least in this context! Was he right to correct me? Is there really a difference?

If as a student you need a chair and you wonder if some are available in other classrooms and you go knock at the door of one, what would you say?

I wonder if there is an extra chair I could borrow.

Or

I wonder if there is a spare chair I could borrow.
