- For Teachers
MacMillan English Dictionary, true:
1. The students are excited and the same holds/ is true for the teachers.
2. It rains a lot in the northwest, and that seems especially true of Cumbria.
Dear sir, would you tell me what the difference is between be true for and be true of? The following is my understanding of the two expressions, am I right?
In sentence 1, the students don't include the teachers, so we use be true for;
In sentence 2, the northwest includes Cumbria, so we use be true of.
