Is there a specific rule in order to use conhecer or saber (depending on the person you are talking to or about?) :)

Olá Ana,


Thank you for your message.


"to know" can correspond to either "saber" or "conhecer", here are some examples:


"She knows that special cake recipe." (Ela sabe aquela receita especial de bolo.)

"She knows him very well." (Ela o conhece muito bem.)
