Spanish (URGENT)

posted by .

I'm learning about the irregular verbs "Conocer" and "Saber"

The teacher told us how to differentiate between the two and when to use which.

But I still find it very difficult to know when to use which one.

Can anyone help? Are there any tricks or tips that will help?

Muchas Gracias!

    Both conocer and saber mean "to know" but not in the same sense and they are not interchangeable.

    Saber is to know information, a fact = either knowledge or ignorance about something.

    Conocer is to be or not to be acquainted with a person, place or thing.

    Yo sé dónde está Susana. = I know where Susan is.

    Yo conozco a Susana. = I know (have met) Susana.

    Saber lo vas a usar cuando haces una pregunta por ejemplo: Quisiera saber cuando entras a la universidad.

    Conocer lo vas a usar por ejemplo cuando tambien haces preguntas Quisiera conocer a tu verdaderos padres?
