Is a radiator fan switch the same as a radiator fan motor? on 1998 Toyota RAV4

My mechanic suggested I need a new radiator fan switch, is that the same as a radiator fan motor? His English is a little bad...

No they are not the same thing, the motor is what spins the fan, the switch turns the motor on and off.
