  2. Teacher Bryan is very anxious about the results of two of his students.
  3. We have just started making enquiries about him.
  4. I have already told you what I feel about the appointment.

**A less frequent use is as a synonym of round or around: –

**About can be contrasted with on, which focuses on more specific and detailed content: –
