do we say:
I am aware of something
I am aware about something
Hi, you need to say aware of something. We would not say "aware about" in English. Hope that helps.
Agreed with Brighton Belle. I can't think of any instance where one would say aware about.
Are You Aware about the Commercial law?
Are you aware about anxiety disorders?
Is it not correct to use 'about' in the senteces above?
I wouldn't use about in those sentences, and if someone handed me an essay with those sentences, I would mark them as something that needed to be corrected.
Aware is an adjective, and about is a preposition, and will not make sense in a sentence when used interchangeably.
Mindful is an adjective that bears a similarity to "aware". I want to avoid starting a new topic, so I'm bringing it up here. Can we say "mindful about"?
"of" is definitely the preferred preposition with "mindful."
Separate names with a comma.
