    I wonder who she is.=I don't know who she is.

    I wonder who she is.
    I don't know who she is.
    A Chinese teacher of English told me that the above two sentences have almost the same meaning.
    Do native speakers agree with the Chinese teacher of English?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: I wonder who she is.=I don't know who she is.

    In neither sentence does the speaker know who 'she' is. However, it is only in the first that the speaker expresses curiosity about who 'she' is.
