Why is"Nous NE souvenons de notre dernier concert"? Surely "nous NOUS souvenons de... is correct?

This relates to:
Se souvenir de, se rappeler (de) = To remember -

You are missing the second "nous" (the reflexive pronoun) as well as "pas" for the negation:

Nous ne nous souvenons pas de notre dernier concert.

Or, in the positive form (as you have correctly surmised):

Nous nous souvenons de notre dernier concert.

I hope that helps, -- Chris (not a native speaker).

The question was "Nous nous rappelons de notre dernier concert. = Nous ________ notre dernier concert. (We remember our last concert.)" This, didn't seem to really explain what I needed to do, but I answered "Nous nous souvenons de notre dernier concert". YOUR answer said "no", it should be "Nous NE souvenons de notre dernier concert"! Can you now see why I was so confused?!
