Bonjour Chris !
Very good question, thank you very much !
The lesson needed to be clearer on which structures are used with either verb.
Savoir is usually followed by a clause with a conjugated verb (know where he goes, what I'm doing ...) or an infinitive (know [how] to do something):-> Ils savent à quelle heure le magasin ferme. (They know at what time the shop closes.)
Connaître is followed by a noun (know <something>):-> Ils connaissent l'horaire de fermeture du magasin. (They know the shop closing time.)
These precisions have been added to the main lesson.
Merci et à bientôt !
