    about that thing?

    Dear All,

    Can I use "About" at the beginning of a sentense?
    Example: About that thing, I have an opinion that....
    or I must use: Regarding to that thing, I have an opinion that ....
    Related to that thing, I have an opinion that ....
    With regard to that thing, I have an opinion that ...

    Thanks in advance,

    Phoenix

    Re: about that thing?

    They are all OK.

    I wouldn't use 'Related to'.

    Re: about that thing?

    I might use '(While) on that subject, I ...'

    Informally, I'd say, "Talking of X, I...'

    Thank you very much.
    Your answers help me a lot.
    I will not be confused while using them any more.
