Hi Emma,

Thanks for the lesson your explanation is very useful to all of us.
Is there any difference in these sentences:
“I look forward to hearing …”
“I am looking forward to hearing to …”

Which one is better to use in formal writing I mean IELTS formal letter?

Saturday, April 23rd 2016

    That`s the same thing!
    “I look forward to hearing …”
    “I am looking forward to hearing to …”

    Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

    sorry, just copied your text
    “I look forward to hearing from you …”
    “I am looking forward to hearing from you …” (should be from, not to)
    The same meaning

    Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

    I think
    “I look forward to hearing …” should be used in a formal letter, “I am looking forward to hearing …” is kind of informal

      Hello Quan, I’m glad to know you’re Vietnamese.

    I am Anella from Kazakhstan. I would like to practice my English with you, of course, if you’d like to. I think in this way, we’ll improve our language skills, at the same time, learn different cultures. Besides, I know Russian too. This is my facebook https://www.facebook.com/shamyhanova.anel . Have a great day!

    Tuesday, May 31st 2016

    Tuesday, June 16th 2020

Hi Emma ! Of course you are goot teacher but this fucking lesson is TOO difecolt for me so I only got 5 from 10. (((

Saturday, April 23rd 2016

    We should be more polite to talk with teachers. It’s the first thing we must learn before we learn the others.

    Monday, April 25th 2016

      Sorry for my previos comment you’re right absolutly !!! Sorry for me teacher and sorry for me everyone (except the Russians).

      Saturday, April 30th 2016

        Dear friend we must be polite in all ours relatioships in the life and in this case is nos different

        Sunday, January 22nd 2017

    cuz u’are silly

    Monday, April 25th 2016

      No no, he is not silly at all! He is the very advanced idiot :)

      Monday, April 25th 2016

        ahaha yea dude, u made a good point

        Tuesday, April 26th 2016

          ı agree guys :D he is the best idiot in the world. this sentence is correct? haha :D

          Saturday, April 30th 2016

        yeah! totally agree, that`s a bad thing that a russian hates its own people )

        Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

          Absolutely right! But why we should bother to ourselves, when this guy, he can’t even type a good sentence about him, for instance: “I me worker” Wow! He needs a couple of good grammar lessons from you KevinKoch. Russian is the second language that I’m going to learn. Simply beautiful. :) By the way, he must stop googling everything he writes.

          Friday, May 20th 2016

Saturday, April 23rd 2016

Thanks for the lesson, Emma. That rules are not so difficult to learn, especially “look forward to -ing”. I just wonder why native English speakers often write “look forward to DO”. Does anyone have the clue to solve this question?

Saturday, April 23rd 2016

Very good lesson Emma. Now it is clear to undestand ‘to’ + ‘ing’. By the way, I got 9 out of 10. Thank you.

Monday, April 25th 2016

Do you have any class in Singapore?

Monday, April 25th 2016

Dear Emma,

What I think that and is more easy to understand that to+ing verb actually works as a noun For example, I will look forward to meeting you. Here meeting will work as a noun. is it right?

Monday, April 25th 2016

Dear Emma,
If I say, for example, I am apposed to live here, what does it mean then? is it wrong?

Monday, April 25th 2016

Emma explained very good this topic , I did 9 correct , it wasnt enough :)

Monday, April 25th 2016

These verbs are about activities, right?
Whenever I have to describe an activity, I’ll use the verb + ing, like running, swimming, etc

Monday, April 25th 2016

Could I say “I hope for ice cream”?

Monday, April 25th 2016

Monday, April 25th 2016

Hi Emma!
Nice lesson, but could you do a lesson on collocations?
How do you know what collocations follow certain verbs.
Thank you!

Monday, April 25th 2016


Monday, April 25th 2016

Hi Emma,
Thanks a lot for being a teacher here. It’s always very nice to see you. :) You know, for some reason the chemistry is very important … :) By the way – what kind of pink tattoo you have on your right shoulder? :)

Monday, April 25th 2016

Emma, finally, how far do you live from Toronto? :)

Monday, April 25th 2016

Very important and interesting lesson. Thank you Mam Emma.

Monday, April 25th 2016

Hi Emma,
I’d like to know that whether this sentence is correct: I am looking forward to my husband? Because You said after this phrasal we can use a noun but I am afraid this sentence is not correct yet.

Tuesday, April 26th 2016

Bonjour Emma, I have a question do we say
I hope to eat ice cream
I hope to eating ice cream
Thank you Emma, you teach very well

Tuesday, April 26th 2016

    I’ve the same question. I’ve got a bit confused with the rule: verb + preposition + verb(ing) because it seems to not apply in “I hope to eat ice cream”.

    Friday, April 29th 2016

      hi,Jessy Vian!I think you don’t mind me answering.In this case ‘to’ isn’t a preposition but a part of the infinitive.

      Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

        Thank you very much, Anton :) It makes sense, “hope” is a verb always followed by the infinitive, so “to” in this case is not a preposition. Sometimes is difficult to know if “to” is a preposition or not. Thak you once again :)

        Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

          My pleasure!

          Tuesday, May 3rd 2016

    I hope to eat ice cream

    Saturday, June 25th 2016

I got 100!!! It’s incredible. just a coincidence.

Tuesday, April 26th 2016

Once again “to” and verb with “ing”

Hi Emma,

Thanks for the video.

I wonder when you use “ing” after “to”, is that a form of gerund, which change a verb to noun or it acts as a second verb as you call?

Thanks in advance,

Sunday, May 22nd 2016

I have a specific question about these cases:

1. The path to creating vibrant city centers is clear.

2. The path to create vibrate city centers is clear.

1b. Could the path to creating happy people be simple?

2b. Could the path to create happy people be simple?

Why is it correct in both forms? I know it’s not a gerund. I know it works fine, but how can I explain it to my students?

Please help!

Monday, May 23rd 2016

    In my opinion in the sentence 1 “to” is a preposition- the path to, just like in “the way to capital”. “Creating” is gerund.
    In the sentence 2 “to” is an auxiliary, just like “to run, to be, to go”, and it is a part of the verb.

    Thursday, January 4th 2018

yah! thank you for your help. I’m looking forward to watching from you

Saturday, June 25th 2016

Emma, I do not know if understood everything, I am still confuse. May I ask: Does always it will follow an “ING word” after a Phrasal verb? I am asking because “get used to” and “look forward to” are, or is it just for those phrasal verb which the ending is with the preposition “to”?

Friday, March 24th 2017

10/10 thank you, I understood!

Wednesday, March 29th 2017

Thank you Emma for your great explanation. I have just only one doubt. At the beginning of your video (2′ 04″ ) you said that whenever there is a preposition between two verbs, the second verb should be in the ing form. My question is: Isn’t there any exceptions to this rule? For what cases this rule applies to?

Thanks in advance

Friday, October 5th 2018

Good job Emma. Thank you so much for it.

Friday, October 19th 2018

Hi Emma! Thank you so much for this lesson and all the work of all the team. I have a question. In the dictionary, it’s written: “To be committed to doing [sth] = to be dedicated to doing [sth]; To be committed to do [sth] = to be obliged to do [sth] ”. So in the quiz, in question 3, shouldn’t we have the two options? : “I am committed to ______ hard.” Shouldn’t we have the possibility to answer either “I am committed to work hard” (it’s more an obligation), or “I am committed to working hard” (it’s more a choice, a commitment)? I look forward to receiving an answer, in order to learn more about this lesson.

Tuesday, October 23rd 2018

Teacher thanks your nice teaching

Tuesday, October 30th 2018

Thanks so much Emma.

Friday, November 2nd 2018

Thank you so much, I’m looking forward to leaning your lessons.

Tuesday, November 13th 2018

Hi Emma, Thank you very much for your helpful explanations. But I have a doubt: how about ‘used to’ for example: I used to lived in Chile. Is ‘used to’ a phrasal verb?, if so, why we do not use ING?. Thank you Emma for your consideration of this question.

Tuesday, November 20th 2018

Thanks, Emma for teaching,

Sorry about that I say; in the first sentence, [meeting] is the noun, isn’t a verb,
And in the second sentence [living] is an adjective.

Friday, December 28th 2018

Thanks Mrs. Emma!

Saturday, April 18th 2020

Hi Emma,
I think the main issue is we don’t know the phrasal verb with to. As you know it has a special meaning of the phrasal verb, but we just think that it is a verb and then plus to. Could you have a lesson special for talking in phrasal verb.

Wednesday, May 6th 2020

Hi Emma.Thank you for explain it clearly !
