    about / -

    ''We are concerned about whether he will get money.'' or ''We are concerned whether he will get money.'' (The first one is used in my book but I am not sure that this is correct.)


    Here is my example, which sentence below is correct?

    ''I am curious about where she is.'' or ''I am curious where she is''

    I have no English teacher, I try to improve my language on my own. Thanks for your help.

    Hello, Gorkem.
    The word you should use is not 'true' but 'right/correct'.

    Can it be rewritten as 'I am curious to know where she is'?
