    To look forward to

    Hello everybody,

    May I write this kind of sentence: "I'm looking forward to visiting Roman Baths, to strolling in its luxurious gardens, to becoming acquainted with Bathonian people, and above all, to working with you" ?Is it correct to put clauses one after the otheras I did?
    Thank you very much for your help.

    Re: To look forward to

    As a list of the things you are looking forward to, yes, it's possible to write them one after another, separated by commas. However, you should say "the Roman Baths", I've never heard "Bathonian" used, and I'm not sure if they luxurious gardens you refer to are part of the Roman Baths or simply gardens in the city of Bath. Also, remove the comma after "people", move it to after "and".

    To clarify, this is how I would write your sentence:

    I'm looking forward to visiting the Roman Baths, to strolling in the luxurious gardens, to meeting the people of Bath and, above all, to working with you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
