    FR: I remember when

    How do you say, "I remember when"? Is it "Je me souviens quand"?

    Re: Se souvenir de/quand

    No, that would mean you remember something when you do something else

    Colloquially, you could say Je me souviens de quand j'ai fait etc... but it would sound better to say Je me souviens du jour où/de la période où/du moment où/etc...

    Re: Où or quand?

    A related question...

    Je me rappelle la fois où.....[nous sommes allés chez ton oncle].
    Je me rappelle la fois que...
    Je me rappelle la fois quand...

    I am pretty sure that the 1st one is fine, but I am wondering if either #2 or #3 are also possible

    Re: FR: I remember when

    Hi,

    sounds like the only correct answer to me Quand would be understood colloquially, but it sounds uncommon. I mean, if someone wanted to use quand, then they'd leave out la fois : Je me rappelle quand nous sommes allés... As for que, it's definitely incorrect and uncommon

    Je me rappelle la fois ...
    Je me rappelle quand...
    Je me rappelle la fois quand...
    Je me rappelle la fois que...
