Difference between konas and scias? Is it like to know a person versus to know a fact? As with conocer and saber in Spanish.
Jes. The verb to-be, "koni", which means "to know" is used in speaking of persons, languages, places, etc. "Koni" always has a direct object. "Scii" means "to know" in the sense of "to be aware," "to have knowledge" is not used in speaking of persons. http://a-complete-grammar-of-esperanto.t.ebooks2ebooks.com/49.html
