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:

1. Remember + verbING is used when you remember something from the past.

For example: I remember saying 『Hi everyone’ – 『Hi everyone’ – See?

2. Remember + full infinitive is used when something 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 + 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.
