In this lesson, I show how I used the phrasal verb – looking forward to – in one of my videos, and then give more examples.

Looking Forward To
In the example I gave, I said the following:
“… So, we’re going to go to Europe in two weeks…. I’m really looking forward to my holiday but I’m not looking forward to the journey.”
This means that I was excited about my holiday but wasn’t excited about the journey.
Here are four more examples:
- “He’s looking forward to starting his new job.”
- “I’m looking forward to going to the beach next week.
- “I’m looking forward to the beach.”
- “We’re not looking forward to it.”
Notice that when we use this phrasal verb with another verb we use the gerund (starting, going).
