    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me your preference for usage of more adequate words in the following sentence?

    I am concerned about the next test in French.

    I am worried about the next class-work in French.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    Smile Re: concernd or worried, test or class-work

    Hmmm... Interesting. Something tells me there's a slightly difference between them:

    I am concerned TO / OF / about the next French test.
    Sounds like a French teacher...a person who is in charge of teaching French.

    I am worried about the next French test.
    Sounds like a student who hasn't studied for the test.

    Am I right? I guess the prepostion will tell when they are diffent from each other.
