When do you use saber versus conocer in Spanish?

This question can confuse many Spanish learners because both of these verbs translate as "to know." These two verbs cannot be used interchangeably, however! They correspond with specific situations that may not register as differentiable for English speakers.

This is one of the many reasons that language-learning fascinates me: differentiating between saber and conocer results in a different understanding of knowledge than in English, where we only use "to know"!
