This is an English language lesson to practice using the word ‘Remember’ with a gerund and with an infinitive.


Remember + a Gerund means that you did something and you can recall the action

I remember talking to you last night.

I remember crying as a child

I remember going on holiday

I don’t remember being born

I remember seeing the robber enter the bank

I don’t remember watching that movie



Ths means that you have a plan to do something.  This is likely to be used in questions or instructions.

Did you remember to lock the door?

Remember to buy some groceries at the supermarket

Remember to tie your shoelaces

Did you remember to finish your homework?

Remember to feed the cat before going to school

Did your remember your grandmother’s birthday?

Remember to call me when you arrive

  1. I just could not go away your site before suggesting that I really loved the standard information an individual provide for your visitors?
    Is going to be back often in order to inspect new posts


  2. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
    text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured
    I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers
