    What's your question?
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    That can be any number of things. Perhaps you mean "Large and intimidating", or maybe "Seems more important that it is"?

    "Loom large" is heavily overused and has perhaps already become a cliché. If you want that cliché go ahead and use it. Otherwise you should probably prefer "look large".

    How can you prefer one two-word phrase over another if you have no idea what it's there for?
