Which means to remember? Both were used in the same lesson and each question would only accept one of the two.

What are the differences?

'I remember you every day', can be: 'Te recuerdo todos los días'. or 'Me acuerdo de ti todos los días'.

'Remember me', can be: 'Recuérdame'. or 'Acuérdate de mí.'

Recordar means to remember. However, recordarse means "to be remembered." http://www.wordreference.com/es/en/translation.asp?spen=recordar

Acordar means to agree, but acordarse means "to remember." http://www.wordreference.com/es/en/translation.asp?spen=acordar

So, I remember is either "me acuerdo" or "recuerdo." Either is fine. However, acuerdo and me recuerdo mean something else.

Acordarse (in the past or present)for example is (action)instantly: ❤❤❤❤, I just remembered I have to buy milk.

Recordarse(is always when you remenber in the past,usually from a long time ago.),the example is: Do you remenber when we was gone to school?

But acordar too,is when you agree something with other people,the example is: We just agreed on the project we had pending. In spanish the examples:

Acordar (memory): Mierda! me acabo de acordar de que tengo que ir a comprar leche.

Recordar (memory)

Recuerdas cuando ibamos al colegio?

Acordar (Always Business)

Hemos acordado el proyecto que teniamos pendiente.

If you have any questions, ask me.
