    could

    Hallo,
    yesterday I read the phrase "All that could be comming to an end". Is this phrase correct or rather "All that could come to an end"?

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hello Lutz, and welcome to the forum.

    Both are possible, but there's a potential slight difference.

    The first refers to something happening now, whereas the second could refer to something in the present or the future.

    Note that you can also say "I look forward to your answer".
