Hi learner,
If you look forward to something it means that you expect something in the future with excitement and pleasure. If you use a verb after, it is always a gerund (-ing form). For example:
I'm looking forward to seeing you/ hearing from you, etc.
It means that I want to see you/ hear from you very much and I expect this with excitement.
Hope this helps.
Daniela

In the expression "look forward to", the word "to" is a preposition, Mantser.
