Student or Learner
Could you please explain the difference between these two expressions?
Thank you so much
- To look for somebody or something.
- To look out for somebody or something.
"To look out for" means to take care of them.
I went to the park to look for my friend when I discovered that she wasn't at home.
My brother is younger than me so I always look out for him.
However (!) - you can also say that you are "looking out for" someone, if you are watching to see if you can see them.
I sat in a café and looked out for my friend because I'd heard she was in the area.
