Student or Learner
I am in a sad plight. Once I had raised one question which is,
I have heard about him.
I have heard of him. What is the difference of these sentences? I raised this question to the forum and I got the answer and I could understand the difference.
The thing is here in one private institute, I am teaching Spoken English for the little children. Today I taught my students differences of these sentences. Somehow Management knew this and scolded me left and right. They told me both are same meaning and no difference. I have been asked the explanation for this, otherwise I may lose my job. Sir, kindly give me a prolonged answer for this.
