I think this donut is delicious!

Today, lets have a look at think about and think that. These phrases seem similar, but have different meanings.

1. We use think + about + noun to show that some idea (noun) is in our mind.

  • When I lived overseas, I often thought about my family.
  • Maybe you are thinking about this grammar now!
  • I saw Jack today. He said he was thinking about you.

2. We use think + that + sentence to give our opinion about something or to state our belief about something.

  • I think that living abroad is a great experience.
  • Maybe you think that English grammar is easy to memorize!
  • Jack said he thinks that you are a nice person.

3. We can also use think + sentence (without that) and it has the same meaning as #2 above.

    • I think living abroad is a great experience.
    • Maybe you think English grammar is easy to memorize!
    • Jack said he thinks you are a nice person.
