20135月中旬,媒體報導國際知名吉他大師艾瑞克克萊普頓( Eric Clapton )的女兒即將於該月下旬分娩。換言之,他將要當外祖父了。媒體還說:

 

He is looking forward to his new role.

(他在期盼著他這個新角色。)

 

英文成語look forward to意思是「期盼」。必須要注意的是這裡的to是介系詞後面一定要接名詞或動名詞。日常英文常出現這個成語。再來看以下例句:

 

I look forward to your visit.

(我期盼你的來訪。)

 

Many readers look forward to his new novel.

(許多讀者都在期待他新的小說。)

 

I look forward to returning my hometown.

(我期盼回到我的家鄉。)

 

She is looking forward to going back to work.

(她盼望回去工作。)

 

She is looking forward to her husband’s coming back.

(她在期待著丈夫回來。)
