USE OF SABER
In order to express the idea ‘to know (a fact/idea/concept)’, Spanish uses the verb saber.
•Yo dónde está Marta.
•Yo no dónde está Marta.
•¿Sabes mi nombre?
(Notice that this is different from the verb conocer which means ‘to know (a person)’ in the sense of ‘to be acquainted with’.)
SABER
(yo)(nosotros, -as)sabemos
(tú)sabes(vosotros, -as)sabéis
(él/ella/usted)sabe(ellos/ellas/ustedes)saben
