What's the difference between REMEMBER and REMIND?

vor 7 Monaten

Both words have different meaning and uses and they are both often confused by most English learners.

So what's the difference between the two of them?

Remember

Remember is when you think of a memory (a past experience):
  • I remember the first time I ever swam in the ocean, when I was 5 years old.
  • Do you remember what happened when Joe forgot to buy a present for his wife on her birthday?
  • I don’t think he remembers that we met 30 years ago.
Remember is also the opposite of “forget.” You can use remember to talk about keeping something in your mind:
  • Please remember to wash the dishes after you finish eating lunch.
  • I was already at work when I suddenly remembered I had a dentist appointment at 9:30. I called the dentist and rescheduled it for the next day.
  • I can’t remember her name. Is it Alice or Annie?


Remind

Remind is when a person or thing makes you think about something.
  • My mother reminded me to wash the dishes after I finished eating lunch.
  • The secretary reminded Mr. Greene that he had a meeting at 4:30.
  • Josh uses the calendar on his cell phone to remind him about important dates.
  • Our shopping list reminds us what we need to buy at the supermarket.
