Bonjour Sally,


Vous allez bien ?

« Connaître » et « savoir » se traduisent en anglais tous les deux par « know » mais en français ils ne s’utilisent pas de la même façon !

Connaître c’est l’expérience, ce que vous avez déjà vécu ou vu (je connais Paris, je connais les parents de Julie )

Savoir c’est ce que vous avez appris, c’est la connaissance, ce que l’on a mémorisé (je sais nager, je sais parler allemand).

Bonne journée !
