Hi, thanks you for watching this One Word English lesson. In this lesson you are going to learn only one word, which you can later use in many different ways.

Today we’ll be exploring the word Look. It may seem a simple word, related to seeing something like “look at that!” But in English we use this word to create many other meanings. Let’s learn some of them.

Look at this girl

Why does she look so upset? Because nobody is looking after her!

Her parents usually look up to each other but today they are having an argument

She looks forward to helping them to make up

Ok, now let me explain what the word look means in these sentences

In the first phrase we have to uses of look: “She looks upset” means “She appears upset”

“Nobody is looking after her” means “Nobody is taking care of her”

The second phrase: “They usually look up to each other” means “They respect (or admire) each other”

So when you add “up to” to “look” you get the meaning “to respect”

The third sentence “She looks forward to helping them to make up” means “She wants to help them to make up and she is waiting for it”

Pay attention at the preposition and the –ing ending in the verb that goes after “look forward to”. We look forward to something or to doing something

Repeat these sentences after me:

She looks so upset because nobody is looking after her

Her parents usually look up to each other but now they are having an argument

She looks forward to helping them to make up

And now you are ready to answer my questions:

Why does the girl look so upset?

Are her parents looking up to each other now?

What does she look forward to?

How does the girl look?

Ok, so now you know that you can use the word look in different forms: look after for take care, look up to for respect, look forward to for want or wait and finally simply look for appear.

Let’s think of situations when this word will work.

Wow, she looks horny (appear), I bet she’s looking forward to seeing someone tonight (wait)

She looks after her body really well (take care)

This sunset looks beautiful (appear)

The boy looks up to his grand-dad (respect)

Try to notice these kind of situations in real life where you can use the word look. For example when you are waiting for something you can say: “It’s summer, I really look forward to going on holiday!”
