Hi Mintoo,

Because the verb in French is 'penser à '.

I've been meaning to ask but please let me know if Lawless French or KwizIQ has a lesson that lists many of the verbs that require à?  It is not always obvious to me as a student.  Many thanks.

when you say "think about sb" in french, it is "penser à qn"

hence why it is a qui, not de qui
