REMIND vs. REMEMBER (REVISION): meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Today I wanted to remind you of the difference between the two verbs remind and remember, which we originally featured in a Daily Vitamin in January 2005, and reviewed again in February 2007.

Remember means: to have an image in your mind of a person, a place, or something that happened in the past.

Example 1:
I remember my first kiss; it happened when I was 10 years old.

Example 2:
I'll always remember the first time we met.

Remind means: to help someone to remember something that they have to do or to help them to remember an event from the past.

Example 3:
Can you please remind me to call my mother tomorrow.

Example 4:
Please remind James to bring his laptop computer to the presentation.

Notice that you always remind someone, but you remember facts or events.
