  • I love EngVid and JamesESL. I also love Mr. E.

  • Hi, James from EngVid. This is one of our viewers, a handsome young man. He works for

  • American Apparel. I'm lying. He likes jackets, shirts, and whatever. He just reminded me

  • of something I wanted to teach you today. And this reminds me that I'm hungry. Hungry.

  • Actually, I brought... to help me remember. So what's the lesson today? Well, today's lesson

  • is on memory. Memory, I have many memories. Memories, like we were - Barbara Streisand?

  • Great song. I don't recall when I first heard it, but it does remind me of when I was younger.

  • I do remember it. I used three words about memory, and I'm sure

  • you've heard these before and you're thinking, "They're all the same". James or JamesESL,

  • lesson #1: "same" and "similar" are different. These words are similar, but they have - well,

  • they have something in common. And we're going to look at... "In common" means

  • something that is familiar, like family. They have something in common, and we're going

  • to talk about it right now. Each word "recall", "remember", and "remind",

  • starts with the same two letters, "re". "Re" -- see Mr. E is like "re" -- Mr. E, what is this?

  • Mystery, get it? If you're new, that's the joke. Every lesson is a mystery. "Re" in Latin

  • -- or... I can't remember if it's Greek -- it stands for back or again. That I recall, and that

  • is correct. So you think about "report", "repair", "redo". They all have to do with doing something

  • again, or bringing it back, return, come back. In this case, each one has something different.

  • We have back and again with a call, back and again with the mind, back and again with member.

  • But it's not member. In English, "member" has a specific meaning. It's an adult meaning.

  • Some of you will and laugh I'm sure and you'll go, "He's talking about his member."

  • Anyway, "remember". In this case, it's memory, because "er" means "something", usually for

  • a noun form. So go back to memory. Now we're going to break it down. If each one means

  • back and again, what does each word mean? They're similar, but not the same. Let us investigate.

  • I recall beginning the lesson with a song. I will come over here. "Recall" -- it comes from call.

  • When you make a call, excuse me. I've got to call someone. Check the number first, okay?

  • Call: "Yo, what's up?" "Yeah, I'm going to need a bag of crack,

  • one bag of coke... sorry! Don't forget: put $50.00 on the horse." This is the wrong call.

  • But the joke of it is, I'm active. In order to make the call I have to do something. The

  • call will not happen unless I do something. When we talk about "recall", "do you recall

  • this?", we are asking you to activate your memory by looking for stored information.

  • Something you have learned that occurred in the past, which is not something you keep

  • around, because it's not necessary all the time.

  • It could be something where you see someone do something on a Monday, which doesn't seem

  • important at the time, but then on Friday they might say, "Hey, do you recall where

  • I left that file?" They're saying, "Please, go back in your memory, like really search

  • and see where I left that file. I need to find it now." Okay? So that's what we recall,

  • it means to actively search. Someone says, "I don't recall." - "I'm looking actively.

  • I'm really trying, but nothing's coming." What's the next one? Well, "remind", re-mind.

  • "Mind" is what we have between our ears. Most of us, if you're watching this video I'm sure,

  • you have a great mind, and you're a fantastic human being. Remind, remind me. Well, once

  • again we get call or back. And notice it says back to. It means something comes back to

  • your mind, okay? So when you remind me of something you're going to say, "Hold on, that's

  • the same as the other one." You just remember and you're like... Here's your mistake, son.

  • Or here's your mistake, daughter. Yeah, let's stick with here's your mistake, son. Okay,

  • when you recall, you go into your head, and you bring back the memory. No one can make

  • you recall, but remind is different. Remind means bring back to my mind and it's usually

  • something outside. I'll ask you to remind me of the address you

  • have to go to at the end of the video, right? You need to remind me. You cannot recall me.

  • You can't do it, it's impossible. But you can remind me, and we'll do it at the end,

  • so it's something outside of me. So when I need to remember to talk to Mr. E,

  • I put a marker in my ear like this. And when I need groceries from the store, I put

  • a marker like this. Of course, the police pick me up every week, because they think

  • I'm crazy, but it does remind me, "don't do this in public."

  • Something outside brings back a memory to me and it makes me remember something, okay?

  • So you can remind me. I can remind myself by doing something special and that helps

  • me bring something to my mind, so I can remember. I've talked about two words and I keep using

  • the same word all the time. Have you noticed what it is? **Do you remember which word I

  • used in September?** It's "remember". Yes, I can't sing, and all these artists I sing

  • when I sing their songs, I get letters saying they're going to sue me and I have to stop.

  • But I can't, I must dance. All right, "remember". I keep saying "remember"

  • to explain these, and we talked about remember has back or again. It has both things. Something

  • comes back to my memory or I bring it up again. Remembering is simple. The memory is there.

  • It's active. It's waiting. It's waiting for you to use it.

  • I remember. I don't have to recall it, because it's here. My name I remember. I got it a

  • long time ago, but I use it all the time, so it's here. Mr. E, I remember him, unfortunately.

  • That's why every video he's here. All right, I don't have to recall him. No one reminds

  • me. I remember him. So we say "remember" for something when it's

  • ready for use in the memory. Like I say, "You need to remember this." Okay, get it ready

  • for use. Or it's waiting to be used. Come on, let's go.

  • Here's another little one. This is for free, because I like you, I really do. Actually,

  • the whole video is for free, so don't worry about it. Okay, we also say "remember to"

  • and we add the "to" because it's a little bit more and it's actually funny. It has nothing

  • really to do with memory. Well, it does, but it's more than memory which the other two

  • don't have. And that's what makes "remember" different from the other two.

  • It has two distinct meanings, okay? It means to do something you promised to do or needs

  • to be done. And I'll add the word "to" after it, so it won't be just "remember". You'll

  • see this, it'll be "remember" - sorry, let me go up here - "remember to" and I'm doing

  • it now. "Remember to explain it to the students", right?

  • So "remember" by itself is just memory, but "remember to" means I have an obligation of

  • some type. "Remember to close the door before you leave." I'm not just saying remember it.

  • That's not going to be good. You leave the door open. Police going to your house: "There

  • was a robbery. Somebody forgot to close the door." You go: "I remembered it. I just didn't do it."

  • That ain't good. We have a video on "ain't". And if you haven't seen it, you should go

  • and see it. Sorry, just go see it. Anyway, "remember to" means you have an obligation

  • that you need to do, okay? So if they add "to", it's a little different. It's not just

  • memory. It involves action. So, let's remind you of the lesson before we

  • go, okay? It's a short lesson, but hopefully a good one for you. You'll recall we started

  • the lesson with the word "recall". Bring back information that you have, stored away.

  • And then I wanted to remind you before I left, of the website you'll go to, which I shall

  • do. And if you remember, there are two meanings for "remember". I have done more than my duty.

  • And Mr. E will be happy with me, all right? Good? We've got them down. Don't forget to do

  • the quiz. Need I remind you where you must go? Do you

  • recall what I told you? Probably not, because I haven't told you yet, so it would be impossible

  • to remember. But we'll do it now. To work on your memory and other things... we should

  • do a video on memory! Woo, boys and girls! Go to www -- that's just to remind you -- eng

  • as in English, vid as in video, which I'm sure you remember, because this isn't your

  • first time and this isn't your first rodeo, right? www.engvid.com I do recall when I was

  • first starting out in this business and Mr. E and I were just strangers...

  • **strangers in the night**...
