    [HELP] My question about Verbs!

    Dear : Teachers

    I have a question with the verb "WAIT". Plz look at my example :

    I just can't__________the winter so i can go skiing again
    A - wait for
    B - look forward to
    C - expect
    D - await


    The answer of this example is A(According to the keys of the book). Why? In my opinion, the answer D is correct.
    Can u explain for me the reason why we chose the answer A? Thanks u very much. Sorry for my bad English!

    THANKS FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTION. :D

    Re: [HELP] My question about Verbs!

    I'm sure there are better answers than this, but I've never heard "await" used in the negative (just can't await). In fact "I can't wait" (or "I just can't wait") is practically a fixed idiom.

    I'm sure someone else will come up with a better response.
