    s`inquiéter pour = be worried about
    s`inquiéter de= be worried of
    c`est vrai?

    Moi, je ne dis jamais to be worried of. Je peux dire "I'm worried for someone" ou "I'm worried about someone or something".

    Quelle est la différence entre s`inquiéter de et s`inquiéter pour?

    Hi Vina. I don't think you can say "s'inquieter pour" at all.

    Vina,
    "s'inquiéter pour" certainly exists = to be worried or concerned about someone.

    "s'inquiéter de" = to worry about / to see to something

    Désolée - "s'inquieter pour" n'est pas dans mon dico.

    True, all dictionaries do not have it....
    But Larousse has...

    Thanks, risingsun. I am using a Larousse DFC, but I think I need a bigger one!
