    anxious to

    Hi RonBee,

    Thank you very much for your input.

    Here are the examples of keen and eager:

    He told me that he was keen/eager to help.
    What is the difference here?

    What is the difference between 'worried' and 'anxious' here?
    I'm worried/anxious about her because she is very sick.

    I am anxious to know the results.
    Can I say this if anxious means 'eager'?

    Many thanks

    You must look for clues in the sentence!
