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).
