    Smile Of/About. I think of/ about. be informed about/of.

    Hello everyone,


    I just want to know the difference between both of these sentence.

    I think about/of leaving right now.

    Job applicants are informed about/of the results of the examination on Tuesday.
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    I am thinking about/of leaving right now. You can use "about" or "of" here.

    Job applicants are/will be informed about/ of the results of the examination on Tuesday.
    See the red parts above.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    For a start, sorry about the badly said question. But I want to know why you used of and not about in the second one. And are sounds much better than will be, I guess.
