386. KNOW Y MEET

Estos dos verbos pueden traer confusión algunas veces.

Know es el verbo saber y conocer
Meet es el verbo conocer tambien...y allí el dilema....pero el uso de estos verbos es bastante diferente.

NICE TO MEET o NICE MEETING YOU o PLEASED TO MEET YOU  = ENCANTADO CONOCERTE

No se puede decir NICE TO KNOW YOU
-We are going to meet very important people  = Vamos a conocer gente muy importante
-I met my wife at the beach  = Conocí a mi mujer en la playa
-Where did you meet your boyfriend  = ¿Donde conociste a tu novio?

-Where can we meet?  = ¿Donde podemos quedar?

Como dije antes, KNOW es el verbo conocer y saber
-I know that girl  = Conozco a esa chica
-Do I know you from somewhere?  = ¿Te conozco de algun sitio?
-Of course you know me!  = Desde luego que me conoces
-I´ve known Susan since we were kids  = Conozco a Susan desde que eramos niños
-I didn´t know that  = No sabia eso
-What are you going to do? I don´t know  = ¿Que vas a hacer
-Do you know what you´re doing?  = ¿Sabes lo que haces
-We knew that you were working in China  =  Sabiamos que estabas trabajando en china


KNOW tambien se usa con los pronombres relativos HOW / WHAT / WHO / WHERE / WHOSE / WHY / WHEN + el verbo en infinitivo
-I don´t know how to change a tire  = No se como cambiar una rueda
-I wish I knew what to do  = Ojala supiera que hacer
-I don´t know who that man is  = No se quien es ese hombre
-They don´t know where to go tonight = No saben a donde ir esta noche
-I don´t know whose keys they are  = No se de quien son las llaves
-Nobody knows why she got so angry  = Nadie sabe porqué se enfadó tanto

385. The Apple tree and the bird

Aqui, otra historia para leer y aprender vocabulario. 
Para mejorar tu ingles hay que:

Leer libros en ingles
Ver peliculas
Escuchar canciones
Trabajar en un pais donde se habla en inglés
Y desde luego, hablar en ingles siempre que puedas, o en grupo o con un profesor nativo o bilingue.


After flying around from one place to another without stopping, the bird saw an apple tree and rested on a branch.


The apple tree didn´t seem to be very happy today, so when it saw the bird resting on its branch, it said: “Don´t you have another place to sit on?”
The bird jumped with surprise and answered:

Relax, I just want to rest for a short while.
What´s the matter with you Mr. Apple tree?”
And the apple tree answered: “My life is boring. I´m always here stuck to the ground and I can´t move. I´m just here for birds like you or other animals to come and pick my fruit”

The bird listened very attentively and when the tree finally stopped complaining, the bird told the tree:
“I on the other hand, think otherwise. I believe that your existence makes more sense than others.

Since you were small, you grew up to simply generously give your fruit to others without asking anything in exchange.
There can´t be a more full and happy life than yours!,” the bird told the apple tree.
You might be right, but I would prefer to be a bird”, said the tree.

“Birds are very wise. You accept things as they are. It doesn´t matter if it´s sunny or rains…. you fly whenever and wherever you want.
Not like humans who are always waiting for something to happen….and if nothing happens, they get depressed

The moral in this story is:
Just like birds and trees, it´s always better to accept and be grateful to what life has to offer.
This will make us all be happier

Vocabulary

384. Reading text:The Arrogant Lion

The mighty Lion woke up and felt like walking across his territory to have a look and see what was happening on his land.
He walked with his head held up high and roared very loudly so that everyone would know that the king and sole owner of the land had arrived to claim allegiance from everyone.



As the heat was rather stifling, the lion made its way to a nearby river to quench his thirst and of course not worrying at all that anyone would ever think of defying him.
While heading to the river, the lion came across a huge deadly cobra and asked it: 
“Tell me, who is the king of the jungle?”
“You without any doubt my master” answered the cobra as it began to flee as fast as it could in order to escape from the lion´s anger.

On arriving to the river, the lion saw a powerful twenty foot crocodile who was sleeping in a pool of muddy water.
The lion sacred the shit out of the crocodile and asked it: “Who is the king of the jungle?”.
Why the hell are you asking me that? You know very well that it´s you, my king”

The lion continued on his journey and saw that up ahead under a tree was the biggest elephant the lion had ever seen.


And of course the lion asked the elephant the same question.
Instead of pleasing the lion as the other animals had, the magnificent elephant wound its trunk around the mighty lion and threw him against a tree with a loud thump.
More surprised than hurt, the lion said; “Okay, I understand why you did that, but there´s no need to get so angry simply because you don´t know the answer”

The moral is that this often happens in everyday life.
There are people who are very arrogant. They think they are the cream of the crop and they believe that they are always right, but if someone thinks differently….. it´s always the other people who are wrong.

Vocabulary
Mighty  = poderoso
Woke up  = se despertó
Felt like  = le apetecia
Have a look = echar un vistazo
Head held up high  = cabeza bien alta
Roared = rugió
Allegiance  = lealtad
As = como
Rather stifling  = bastante sofocante
Quench  = saciar
At all  = en absoluto
Defying  = desafiar
Heading  = yendo hacia
Came across  = se cruzó
Flee  = huir
In order to  = para poder
Scared the hill = le pegó un susto de muerte
Why the hell = porque diablos
Wound = enroscó
Trunk = trompa
Threw him = lo lanzó
Thump = golpe
No need  = no hay necesidad
Get so angry  = enfadarse tanto
They are always right = siempre tienes la razón
Wrong   = equivocados
Moral  = moraleja
Cream of the crop  = creme de la creme 

The Tokens sing " The Lion sleeps tonight"

382. REMEMBER OR REMIND

Si tu primer idioma es español, entonces tendrás dificultades al usar "REMEMBER O REMIND"

Cuando dices: "TE ACUERDAS?" (DE ALGO), ENTONCES SE DICE: "DO YOU REMEMBER?"
Cuando dices: "RECORDAR A ALGUIEN QUE TIENEN QUE HACER ALGO, SE USA: 
REMIND + OBJECT PRONOUN
REMIND ME = RECUERDAME  / REMIND HIM = RECUERDALE / REMIND THEM

TAMBIÉN SE USA "REMIND" CUANDO UNA PERSONA TE RECUERDA DE ALGUIEN
- You remind me of someone  =  Me recuerdas de alguien
- Your mother reminds me of my mother  = Tu madre me recuerda a mi madre
- Susana reminds me of a girl I knew at school  = Susana me recuerda a una chica que conocía en el colegio
- Doesn´t he remind you of Pablo?  = ¿No te recuerda a Pablo?
-You forgot to remind me to set the alarm  = Te olvidaste de de recordarme de poner la alarma

REMEMBER ES MAS UN VERBO DE ACTIVIDAD MENTAL PORQUE TIENES QUE RECORDAR ALGO QUE TIENES QUE HACER O ALGO DEL PASADO

El OPUESTO DE "REMEMBER" ES "FORGET"


*WILL YOU REMEMBER TO BUY SOME WINE?  DON´T WORRY, I WON´T FORGET

-I still remember when we went to Dublin  = Aún me acuerdo cuando fuimos a Dublin

-Don´t you remember you have a dentist appointment?  Thanks for REMINDING me. I nearly forgot =  ¿No te acuerdas que tienes una cita con el dentista? Gracias por recordarmelo. Casi me olvido.

SI DETRÁS DE REMEMBER VA OTRO VERBO, EL VERBO VA EN GERUNDIO
-I don´t remember hitting my head on the table when I was young  = No me acuerdo pegarme de golpearme con la cabeza en la mesa cuando era joven
-Do you remember going to London when we were children?  = Te acuerdas haber ido a Londres cuando eramos niños?
-Susan doesn´t remember receiving the report  =  Susan no se acuerda haber recibido el informe
- I don´t remember telling you that  = No me acuerdo haberte dicho eso

CON REMEMEBER TAMBIEN SE USA "WHAT / WHO / WHERE / HOW / WHEN  + EL VERBO EN INFINITIVO O CON EL VERBO EN PASADO
-I don´t remember what I have to say  = No me acuerdo lo que tengo que decir
-Do you remember who to ask about the car?  = ¿Te acuerdas a quien preguntar sobre el coche?
-We don´t remember to go for the meeting  =  No recordamos done ir para la reunión
-Do you remember how to go to Juan´s house?  = ¿Te acuerdas como ir a la casa de Juan?

-I don´t remember where I left my car = No me acuerdo donde dejé mi coche
-I don´t remember who bought me this sweater  = No se quien me compró este jersé
-I don´t remember who called  = No me acuerdo quien llamó
-She can´t remember where she bought the shoes = No se acuerda donde compró los zapatos
-Will you remember where you parked the car?  = ¿Te acordarás donde aparcaste el coche?

REMIND SE USA PARA RECORDAR QUE TIENES QUE HACER ALGO Y SIEMPRE SE USA REMIND + OBJETO
