    להכיר, לדעת - both mean to know. But:
    להכיר - knowing people,places etc.
    לדעת - knowing facts and skills.
    אני לא מכיר את האיש הזה - I don't know this man
    אני לא יודע מה קרה - I don't know what happened.
    I see that you learn Italian too,there's such a difference in Italian: conoscere - להכיר
    sapere - לדעת
