Yes, I agree with the others: Bronsted deals with protons (H+), while Lewis deals with electrons. A tip is that Lewis Acids are e(L)ectron (A)cceptors, so just remember the LA, and you can figure out the rest of them! Hope this helps!
A Bronsted base is a proton acceptor, while a Lewis acid is an electron acceptor. One way to tell the difference is to count the number of hydrogen ions. If the number of hydrogens has decreased that substance is the acid (donates hydrogen ions). If the number of hydrogens has increased that substance is the base (accepts hydrogen ions).
