Do you not have a textbook? Or Revision Guide?

and by the way episodic memory is a memory store for personal events and includes memories of people objects and behaviour. A strength is it is good when remembering important stages in your life, however memories from this store have to be retrieved consciously with effort.

Semantic memory is a long term memory store for our knowledge of the world. This includes facts and our knowledge of what words and concepts mean . A strength would be that students can learn about the words and have good vocabulary. A weakness is that memories need to be recalled deliberately.
Hope that helps
