I think, most students would enjoy performing one of Shakespeare's plays very much. That's why my friend Martin and I formed a drama group of our own; we're interested in acting. But we had difficulty choosing a play which we could perform. Last week we succeeded in picking a play that was suitable for us: John Priestley's "An Inspector Calls". We're glad that we're going to spend the following weeks on this play.
Can i rewrite the bold quote to that? I'm just a bit unsure whether my solution is correct.
We're looking forward spending the following weeks on this play.
(The Text contains already some rewritten parts.)
To clarify my question a bit: I knew the thefreedictionary.com Definition
look forward to:
To think of (a future event) with pleasurable, eager anticipation: looking > forward to graduation.
But I'm still a bit unsure, because
whether it should be "look forward" or "looking forward", although the latter one seems "more natural" to me. Additionally, the
Present continuousseemed more suited because the text focuses on the actual moment.
whether it should be "looking forward to spending" as suggested in the comments or "looking forward spending". The first version seems very unnatural to me (although I'm obviously not a native speaker) and the program "ding" from defines the "to" as optional
to look forward (to)
although i can't find that in one of the popular ones or on the website.
