What does LOOK FORWARD TO mean? | English class

646 ratings | 21773 views
What does “look forward to” mean in English? It means to think about something in the future with pleasure. To be pleased or excited that something is going to happen. The form and grammar rules are as follows. look forward to + noun phrase Example: "I'm looking forward to the weekend." look forward to + ing form (gerund) Example: Mark is looking forward to buying a house. We do NOT use the infinitive / base form of the verb: "I'm looking forward to meet you." (wrong) If the second verb has a different subject, we use the object pronoun. Example: "I'm looking forward to HIM visiting me next week." We do NOT use the subject pronoun: "look forward to" is very common in written English. We often use it at the end of a letter or email. It's a polite way of telling someone to do something. We use the present simple form: Example: "I look forward to your reply."

Hello Andrew! I am confused a little bit. On the 8th min of the video is shown such sentence as "Mark is visiting me next week." So can we use Present continuous in this case with the words for future tense "next week"? Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hi theacher ,May I ask something? "Good managers know that their job is to look out for their employees' interests, as well as those of the company. " In this sentence "those" refers to "company's interests" . But how?How can I learn deeply about this structure? Please give me some advice!

Hello Andrew ! The lesson of " look forward to " is very interesting and insightful. Strictly speaking, it is the first time in my career as an English learner that I receive an explanation of such expression. Thank you so much for your dedication and commitment in teaching the English Language worldwide. By and large, throughout the whole year, you have worked restlessly in providing us new video lesson every now and then. Great ! As we are near the season`s greetings, I take this opportunity to wish you a very merry Christmas and happy New Year 2018 filled with health, love, peace, happiness and prosperity. Please do relax, enjoy and have fun with all your loved ones. I look forward to seeing you next year with new resolutions. With the very best wishes, Yours, Fazil

I am looking forward to see another video very soon.
if you watched the video there's a small correction note of Crown Academy when you say:"forward to see" ("forward to seeing" is the correct).
I'm looking forward to SEEING .....(second form), .but it's better to say or write: I lOOK forward to SEEING.....but "look forward" is very common in written English, in this case I think is better to write your sentence so: "I hope to see another video very soon" because is not verified of a second video with this topic.
Don't forget to use the ING form - I am looking forward to *seeing* another video soon. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes. Andrew
roberto pisano (1 year ago)
I think the correct form is " to seeing " .
Silvio Filgueiras (1 year ago)
Thank you. I'm look forward to watching the next video.
It's a pleasure, Silvio. Small correction: I'm *looking* forward to watching the next video. (present continuous) OR I look forward to watching the next video. (present simple) Best wishes Andrew

Because of being frasal verb "look forward to" is following with "ing" form of the verb. I looked forward to your reply. I will look forward to your reply.
