ARE YOU "LOOKING FORWARD" TO YOUR HOLIDAY?
The expression "looking forward to" is something that Spanish people don't use very often when they speak because there is no real Spanish equivalent.
The general definition is: "esperar con ganas". We use it a lot at the end of more formal letters or emails: "I am looking forward to hearing from you soon" but you can also use it when you are speaking: "I am looking forward to the football match tonight".
So overall it is a very useful expression that is well worth remembering. Notice that when you have a verb that follows the expression we use the gerund (ing form): I am looking forward to speakING to him".
Hope that helps!
