  • Ah! She's awake.

  • - I'm Dr. House. - What? Wait, where

  • Who am I? Where am I?

  • You're in the hospital.

  • You're Becky.

  • And you're... pretty cool.

  • Wait, who are you? Who's this?

  • Have you got amnesia, love?

  • Becky, this is Kyle, your boyfriend.

  • What? No, no, no, I wouldn't date someone who wears sunglasses inside.

  • You haven't got any recollection of us together?

  • I got nothing.

  • You're the boyfriend!

  • Say something; jog her memory!

  • Yeah, yeah, I might have something. Um...

  • Remember me

  • Though I have to say goodbye

  • Remember me

  • Don't let it make you cry

  • - I do remember you! - Yes!

  • - Kyle. - Yes!

  • You're a douche!

  • - So cool.

  • Today's lesson is all about memory, and the most useful expressions that you can use for remembering things...

  • ... and... what was the other thing?

  • First, quickly, what's the difference between "remember" and "remind"?

  • These two verbs are always confused.

  • So, they both talk about having a memory inside your head, but "remember" specifically means to have and to keep a memory in your head.

  • Like, "If you go out somewhere, just remember to take your key."

  • Keep that memory inside your head; don't lose it.

  • And "remind" means that something or someone puts the memory into your head. Again.

  • I'm listening to our song right now. It reminds me of you.

  • So, in that situation, the song makes me remember; it gives me the memory of something.

  • It reminds me of the thing.

  • I remember your face when I listen to this song.

  • Alright, so, if you are like me, then every time you meet someone new, this happens.

  • Hello, how you doing? I'm Maria.

  • You alright? I'm Aly!

  • What was your name again?

  • Yeah, really, it's every time.

  • But did you notice, when you want to ask someone to repeat some information that maybe you forgot, we ask it like this:

  • Sorry, what was your name again?

  • I know, it's still your name now, but the verb, we make it past, because we forgot, and you told me in the past.

  • And also, notice, when we ask you to repeat something, we will add "again", like in these examples:

  • Sorry, my memory is terrible! What was your job again?

  • Oh, no worries. I'm a painter.

  • What did you do again?

  • Yes, it's still happening now, but that verb, change it to the past tense and add "again", because you're asking them to repeat themselves.

  • What was the next thing?

  • Sorry, I lost my train of thought.

  • You know those times when you have a thought and then you have another thought, but then you lose it and you forget everything?

  • In those times, we say that you "lose your train of thought".

  • So, right now, I... I just lost my train of thought. Sorry.

  • When you forget something very quickly or in a careless way, we say that that thing "slipped your mind".

  • "It slipped my mind!" For example:

  • Did you not hear any name? Or did you forget it? Or what?

  • I heard what you said, I just... it slipped my mind.

  • When we talk about remembering things, these are the most common expressions.

  • You don't remember my name? I told you f... five seconds ago.

  • It'll come back to me, I promise.

  • Remember the phrasal verb, "come back"?

  • It means "return".

  • The memory will return.

  • I just need something to jog my memory, and then I'll remember.

  • I came over here, I introduced myself... "Hello, I'm Aly..."

  • To "jog your memory", to shake your brain, to do something in order to help you remember something.

  • Now, when you're trying to remember something...

  • No, nothing, you just can't remember, we say these:

  • Oh, my God, it's⏤look, I believe in you; it's easy! What's my name? Maaaa...?

  • Sorry, I'm drawing a blank! My mind is a blank, sorry!

  • When you "draw a blank" or your "mind is a blank", it means there's no memory in there, it's nothing.

  • No, no, come on. Mariii...?

  • I've got nothing, sorry!

  • Now, when I have this facelook at that stupid face⏤I'm looking or I'm staring blankly at someone or something; it means nothing is happening inside here.

  • It rhymes with "Korea"?

  • Sh! Don't tell me. It's on the tip of my tongue. Um...

  • Something "is on the tip of your tongue".

  • The words are there, but you just can't say them.

  • You just need something to jog your memory a tiny bit, and then you'll remember.

  • Oh, ah! I had it, and now it's gone.

  • Yeah, no, I lost it.

  • Some of you want the more formal options, so let's talk about that.

  • To "have a recollection of" something or someone.

  • A recollection, it's a memory, but it's just a more formal word for memory.

  • Pronunciation:

  • Recollection. Re-co-llec-tion. Recollection.

  • The stress is here.

  • Recollection.

  • But that's a noun, and it works like this:

  • So you don't have any recollection of my name? Nothing?

  • Yeah, I have no recollection of your name at all!

  • A formal verb that you can use would be "recall".

  • Pronunciation: Recall.

  • That's a schwa. Re-call.

  • The stress is on the second syllable.

  • Recall.

  • If you don't remember, you don't "recall".

  • That's a more formal way of saying I don't remember.

  • And we use it like this:

  • Do you usually have trouble recalling names?

  • Well, weirdly, I can actually recall every one of my exes, because... well, it's actually easy, they're all called Maria; it's really weird.

  • Why are you angry? What did I do?

  • So, next time that you forget something in English, just remember this lesson, and...

  • I was gonna say something then.

  • This is embarrassing.

  • Uh, no, I remember, I remember!

  • Um, I've got a new "Papa Teach Me" e-book.

  • You can find worksheets on my favorite lessons, including this one, on my Patreon.

  • You'll see the link for that in the description.

  • And I'll see you in the next class, if I remember when that is.

Ah! She's awake.
