    Hi,

    In the sentences:

    I am concerned with your problem. / I am concerned about your problem.

    Is there any difference in meaning between them ?if so what does each sentence mean ?

    thanks

    Re: concerned with / concerned about

    Yes, there is. ‘Concerned with’ means ‘took part in or had to do with’. 'Concerned about’ means ‘worried about’. You should now be able to see the difference in meaning between the 2 sentences.
