Hello. Is it mistake in first task - “do you know Alyssa” instead “do you remember Alyssa” ?
Hello Ransom 'Do you know Alyssa?' is also grammatically correct here, but is not as specific as 'Do you remember Alyssa?' In general, we say 'Do you know ...?' when we don't know if the other person has met the other person. In this case, Charles knows that Julian met Alyssa, which is why he says 'Do you remember Alyssa?' instead. All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
