What is the capital of Tunisia?

How to say “I look forward to it”?

In a formal way you can say something like:

“dans l’attente de votre réponse veuillez agréer mes salutations les plus respectueuses”

it means : I look forward to hearing from you

In a non-formal way, you can say this:

Je vais voir cela

This means that will will look at it, think about it.

J’y songerais

This means that you will think about it, but you are still uncertain.

The “less formal” way to say it is:

Je vais voir cela et je vous tiens au courant

This means that you will think about it and that you will contact him if things happen.

There is no real translation

In this case, “I’m looking forward to it” could also mean “I can’t wait to see it”. It is the way it will be translated into French, expressing the “I’m excited” idea, but in a more formal way. Here are a few examples of correct and formal translations :

Je suis pressé de voir ça


J’ai hâte de voir ça

or even

Je suis emballé par ça ! (this is quite unformal, to be honest.)

**EDIT : **
As Stéphane pointed in the comments, I suggest another, way more formal way to express this.

Je me réjouis d’avance

Where “Je me réjouis” expresses happiness, and “d’avance” refers to the future, when you get thing you are actually waiting for.

As a non-native speaker, I would say..Je serais vraiment content de le reçevoir. or ça sera mon plaisir de le recevoir. This means… I’ll really be glad to receive/get it. It will be a pleasure to receive it. Looking forward to something suggests the future… Also, I believe that a French teacher teaching everyday French said that something like ..Je l’attend avec impatience! or Je suis impatient de le reçevoir/voir Both suggest a sense of anxiously (in a good way; not worried) awaiting something/to receive/see something…I hope a native speaker can clear this up for us. Very interesting site!..
