    Hello everyone!

    My first question is, is it possible to say: "I’m starting being worried about you"?

    And my second question is about the correctness of such a sentence: "You needn’t to spend your time with them"

    Shouldn’t it be like: "You needn’t spend your time with them"?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Kamil

    I’m starting being worried about you

    should be

    “I’m starting to be worried about you.”

    For the second one, you are correct, it should be

    “You needn’t spend your time with them.”

    Regarding the correction from

    "I’m starting being worried about you"?

    to

    I’m starting to be worried about you.

    As a matter of fact better would be:

    "I’m starting to get worried about you."

    I’m starting being worried about you

    should be:

    I’m starting to get worried about you / You´re starting to worry me.

    The second one should be:

    You don´t need to spend your time with them.
