Hello everybody!
I need a little help.
Can someone please explain the difference between "think of" and "think about"?
Thanks in advance.

Hello,
a double click on think will open a dictionary. Even if you don't understand the French translation, the examples will give you a good clue.
At first sight, think about it means reflect upon it.
I have been thinking of you is more about feelings.
Think of can also mean invent, or don't forget to....

Hello to everyone
There is slight difference between think of and think about.
think of = have a specified opinion of.
Think of is used with these nouns as the object: excuse, explanation, number, retirement
think of/about = consider the possibility or advantages of.
Think about is used with these nouns as the object: retirement, situation, wording

think of\ about examples:

I thought of you immediately when they said they wanted someone who could speak English.
He was thinking about the time he spent in the army.
It still upsets him when he thinks about the accident.
Most people can't be bothered thinking about their retirement - they're too busy concentrating on the here and now.

I appreciate your reply.
in summary you're trying to say; think of = how you view or observe a thing
think about= a longer or deeper 'thought' about a person or thing.
Am I right?
