    dream of or dream about

    Hello, Teachers.

    What's the difference between dream of and dream about?

    For example, which should be used in the following sentence?
    He's got the sort of money that you and I can only dream about/of.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dream about refers more to something that already exists, whereas dream of refers to something that is less likely to happen.

    But actually there is no strict rule here. They can be used interchangeably.
