|Common Error: "Know" vs. "Meet," "See," and "Visit"|
|DON’T say this:|
|WHY?||If you know someone or something, it means that you have knowledge or information about them.|
If you meet a person, you see him or her for the first time. This situation can be called an introduction, since you introduce one person to another person.
If you visit a place or person, you interact with them in some way.
If you see a person or place, it's similar to visit; normally you interact with them, but you may just observe them.
|INSTEAD, SAY THIS:||-"I want to travel to France to see/visit the Eiffel Tower." |
-"I have never visited/been to/gone to New York, but I've heard it's an amazing city."
-"The Spring Social Meeting is a great way to meet new people."
-"Do you know Paul? He's a really nice guy." OR "Have you met Paul?"
-"I don't know French, but I do know German."
So, hopefully you'll know what to say now if you meet someone new or visit a new place. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to leave a comment or contact us. Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
