  • Hi, everyone. Dan for BBC Learning English here with a

  • quick explanation of the difference between

  • 'remember' and 'remind'.

  • Now both 'remember' and 'remind' are verbs of memory,

  • but they are not the same.

  • 'Remember' is about having a memory and has

  • two verb patterns.

  • Number one: remember + (verb)ing is used

  • when you remember something from the past.

  • For example:

  • I remember saying 'Hi, everyone'.

  • See?

  • Number two: remember + full infinitive is used when

  • something is to be done in the future.

  • For example:

  • I must remember to do my shopping later.

  • However, 'remind' means 'make someone remember'.

  • Its verb pattern is

  • remind + somebody + a full infinitive verb.

  • For example:

  • You must remind me to do my shopping later.

  • Something can also remind someone of something.

  • For example:

  • This cup reminds me of my other cup.
