"I look forward to hearing from you" vs "I'm looking forward to hearing from you."
Hello,The following is about "I look forward to hearing from you." and "I'm looking forward to hearing from you." and its differences.How would you opine on that? Do you agree or not?"Actually, the register has nothing to do with it! The difference is how the speaker perceives their own words: an action seen as a whole/accomplished (I look forward...) or continuing (I am looking...). Unless very self-aware or possibly an English teacher, an ordinary native speaker will be unable to explain their choice between the two and so the difference between a mental impression (I look forward) and a mental activity (I'm looking forward). In such cases, attempting to explain these subtleties to your students may prove counterproductive, unless of course they're advanced enough to handle it. It is my policy, that until then they're perfectly fine knowing there is no real difference there."
