    remember when

    Hi, I have a question and need your help. I know that "I like it when S +V" or " I like when S +V" are both are okay and the meaning is the same. Then, how about "I remember it when S +V?" and "I remember when S +V"

    Either way is fine and the meaning is the same? Thanks in advance.

    Re: remember when

    Hm... all my teachers said that "I like when..." is wrong. There has to be "it" - "I like it when..." - as an object.

    Re: remember when

    A lot of teachers do say that; informally, both 'like when + <subordinate clause>' and 'hate when + <subordinate clause>' are common.

    On the other hand 'I remember when + <subordinate clause>' is much more common than 'I remember it when + <subordinate clause>' - although in some contexts this might be acceptable.
