    Re: look/looking foreward

    Hi Maja, and welcome to Using English.

    I look forward to and I am looking forward to both mean about the same, but some feel that the first one is more formal.

    Note that you need the -ing form after it or a noun.

    I look forward to meeting you.
    I am looking forward to our trip.
    He is looking forward to receiving that new book he ordered.
    She looks forward to your visit every year. -- For repeated action, only the simple present works.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
