Hey how can I remember your lesson if I can’t stop laughing while i’m listening to you ! Lol ^^

Could you please clarify with my example ?
If i stick a post-it note on my fridge,
- The post-it note will remind me to do something ?
- Thanks to the post-it note, i’ll remember to do something ?
- I can’t recall where i stuck this damn post-it note and what was written on it ?

Are my sentences all right ?

By the way, it would be so so amazing if you could do a entire lesson in a song, a song lesson ! Oh yeah !

Wednesday, May 1st 2013

    I’m sure I’ve made a mistake in my very first sentence, i should have wrote : How could i REMIND your lesson … ?

    Wednesday, May 1st 2013

      I think your first sentence is correct: “How can I remember your lesson?”…By the way, you gave three good examples…In my opinion they are all correct!

      Thursday, May 2nd 2013

        Thank you Janilza for giving your opinion :)

        Thursday, May 2nd 2013

          @lucyinthesky: what do you think are you very smart.If you think like that then this is not right place to showing your smartness over here,if you well known with every thing then why you trying to show your talent.

          Sunday, July 21st 2013

      Those three examples are correct, as far as I know. And I think the first sentence you wrote make more sense to me, which is “How can I remember your lesson…..”

      Thursday, December 26th 2013

    really good sentences they are gonna remember me the lesson all the time

    Thursday, July 25th 2013

Thursday, May 2nd 2013

Thanks James for this very useful lesson. I got 10 out 10 correctly. Greetings from Brazil!

Thursday, May 2nd 2013

So, correct me if i’m wrong. Recall is when someone ask us to remember something. Remind is like something that makes you remember something. that remind me my childhood, for example. To wrap things up:
(I can recall me you can’t recall me, you can just remind me, both makes me remember) is that correct?

Thursday, May 2nd 2013

    You’re basically correct but made few mistakes.

    Recall is an intransitive verb, so it cannot carry any subject (I cannot recall anything), but remind is a transitive verb, so it can carry a subject (it reminds ”me” my childhood)

    Wednesday, May 8th 2013

      oh yeah, that’s right, recall me doesn’t make any sense, but I can recall a memory right? for example, “I can’t recall the last time I wrote this”. “the last time…” is something that I’m trying to recall but I can’t so I “can” recall something, the problem is that “recall is usually used in negative sentences, So i can’t recall anythings at all. I know it

      Wednesday, May 8th 2013

      oh yeah, that’s right, recall me doesn’t make any sense, but I can recall a memory right? for example, “I can’t recall the last time I wrote this”. “the last time…” is something that I’m trying to recall but I can’t so I “can” recall something, the problem is that “recall is usually used in negative sentences, So i can’t recall anything at all. I know it’s confuse and maybe I’m wrong again, but I guess I did get the picture about how to use this and this is what matters right?

Hey, James! Why didn’t you make the lesson complete by comparing the phrases ‘remember + infinitive’ (= don’t forget to) and ‘remember+ gerund’ (= recall doing something in the past)? … Just a suggestion …

Friday, May 31st 2013

Thanks, that was awesome)))

Sunday, June 2nd 2013
