You probably already know that in English we have some verbs that are always followed by the infinitive - for example: want. And other verbs that are always followed by the gerund - for example: enjoy.

大家可能知道,在英语当中有些动词后面通常会跟不定式——例如:want这个词。其它有些动词后面通常跟动名词——比如enjoy等。

But we also have some verbs in English that can be followed by either the infinitive or the gerund and the meaning will change, for example: remember

然而,也有些动词后面既可以跟不定式也可以跟动名词,而且意思也会随之改变。比如说remember这个词。

Remember to bring your umbrella - where first you remember and then you bring your umbrella. This is commonly used when talking about the future.

别忘了带雨伞——首先是记住,随后才是带伞。这个用法通常表示未来状态。

I remember meeting my best friend when I was little - where first I met my best friend and then I remembered it. This is now a memory, so it's commonly used when talking about the past.

我记得我小时候遇到的最好的朋友——先是遇到了最好的朋友,然后是记住最好的朋友。这对于现如今来说是一段记忆,所以这个用法通常用来表示过去。
