Conocer vs Ser



Conocer vs Ser

In this article, we are going to help clarify the difference between conocer and ser, two verbs which mean to know in Spanish.

Though both verbs mean to know, they are used differently when dealing with different contexts.

 

Conocer

Conocer is used generally when you are saying you personally know or are acquainted with a certain, person, place, or thing.

 

Ejemplos- Examples

Conozca a Juan- I know Juan.

Conozco ese libro- I know that book

Conozco Nueva York- I know New York

 

Conocer is more used when you are talking more subjectively than objectively.

Conocer is again things you know from experience or personally, including people, places, and things.

 

Saber

Saber is used generally for factual things, or objective things, rather than from subjective things that depend on one's personal familiarity.

¿Sabes qué hora es?- Do you know what time it is?

¿Sabes la respuesta?- Do you know the answer?

¿Sabes si está lloviendo ahora?- Do you know if it is raining now?

 

Generally, saber means to know facts, or factual information. Conocer is to know something personally or subjectively.
