Hi,

Can anyone help me please? What is the difference between "Savoir" and "connaître"? They both mean "to know" , but I think they're used in different contexts. Any help and/or examples would be much appreciated.

Savoir means to know:

a fact
how to do something

Connaître means to know
someone
to be familiar with someone or something

QUOTE
In the passé composé 
Savoir means to learn or find out.  Connaître means to meet someone for the first time. 
Ils ont su que j'ai gagné.  They found out that I won.  Elle a connu Luc à Rome.  She met Luc in Rome.
