Remind vs. remember #2 (permalink) Mon Nov 01, 2004 16:27 pm   Remind vs. remember
 

Hi Simone,

You can remember something that has already happened and you can remind somebody about something that is going to happen in the future.

Please, remind me to give you the key to our new office.
I can't remember talking about the upcoming conference.

Also, the verb remind can be used as in the examples below:

This song reminds me of an old friend I used to have many years ago.
This picture reminds me of the trip to Milan which we took last year.
