I’m looking forward to hearing from you

Here’s another chant, this one created on the spot in Paderborn at Benteler (for Akademie für Sekretariat und Büromanagement).
Hi ladies :-) !

Snap your fingers to anchor the +ing in your memory.

I’m looking forward to seeing you
I’m looking forward to meeting
you
I’m looking forward to hearing
from you
I’m looking forward to talking
to you.

Why? “To” is a preposition here, and prepositions are followed by +ing

I’m looking forward to +ing (informal, expresses feeling)
I look forward to +ing (more formal expession)
Look forward to +ing (informal email)

CU!
cul8r! See you later

language focus: verb + preposition + -ing
