    wait for/to

    Goodevening,

    I would ask if it was possible saying "I will be waiting for doing sth", instead of "waiting to do sth", for example in an informal context.

    Thanks

    Re: wait for/to

    I am not a teacher.

    No, it isn't.

    You can be waiting for something, but not waiting for doing something.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
