Hello Sir!
Nice to meet you
What's your name?
uhhh...my name is Gregory
and uhhh how are you Sir?
Not bad...but uhhh
My memory is not what it used to be
I find I can't remember things as well as I used to
It's funny, though, you know
I can remember doing things when I was very young
But I can't seem to remember to do the things that I need to do
Ahhh, that's the reality of aging, I guess
Well, it's been nice meeting you Gregory
That old geezer said some very interesting things
He said, "I remember being a child"
" But I can't remember to do what I need to do each day"
In the first sentence, the first verb
'remember' is followed by a second verb "being"
This second verb is in the gerund form
In the second sentence the verb 'remember', or the first verb
was followed by the infinitive 'to do'
'Remember' can be followed by both a gerund and an infinitive
But in each sentence it has a very different meaning
First, let's look at 'remember doing'
When 'remember' is followed by a gerund
The action of doing happens first
and then you remember it
so you are experiencing a memory
Oh, here's Gregory now
Gregory, whould you be so kind as to tell us a few things you remember doing?
Let's see here
When I was a young lad I went to school
I remember playing stickball with my friends
By golly we had a great time
Also, I lived through the Great Depression
During that time I didn't have two pennies to rub together
I fought in the second world war
Okay, now let's take a look at these memories and uhhh
talk about them using 'remember' plus a 'gerund'
I remember going to school
I remember playing stickball
I remember playing through the Great Depression
I remember fighting in the Second World War
Now let's talk about the meaning of 'remember to do'
When remember is followed by the infinitive
The order of events is different
It means first you remember,
then you do something
First you remember that something must, or had to be done
Then you do it, or did it
Basically, you remember the task that must be done
Then, you do it
Hello Gregory
Could you please tell us some things that you must do in the next week
Let's see here, ahhh ummm
Ah...I've got it!
I uhhh need to take...need to take my medicine
I need to call my friend and family and uhhh
Oh yeah...I need to pay my bills
And it's uhhh my wife's 93rd birthday next week so...
I need to remember to buy her a present
All Right, now Gregory
Could you please give us an example sentence using the infinitive
Sure thing there Sonny Boy
I must remember to take my medicine
I must remember to call my friend and family
I must remember to pay my bills
and I must remember to buy my wife a gift
Before we go I'd like to give you two more patterns that
can be used with remember
First we'll look at remember followed by a noun
The sentence pattern is as follows
'Subject', 'remember' or 'remembers' then 'noun' or 'pronoun'
I remember that day
She remembers them
We remember your name
'Remember' can also be found by a noun clause or a wh- clause
I'll show you an example with a wh- clause
The pattern is as follows
'Subject', 'remember' or remembers'
then a wh- word
and a clause
For example, I remember who I wanted to see
She remembers what they said
We remember where we went last night
Or maybe if you were drinking last night you don't remember where you went last night
She remembers when she was a child
They remember why he told us to do that
I remember how they did that so fast
Well, that's it for this lesson
Have a great day!
