    Default someone new

    I'd like to know the difference "someone new" and "someone you don't know".

    Thank you in advance.

    i don't know what is your native language but in spanish that sentences means:
    Someone new---> Alguien nuevo
    Someone you don't know---> Alguien que no conoces

    Someone new is someone you don't know, but you could use it in a different way. A new person at work might be someone new, and this sounds more natural.
