Let’s learn how to use the phrasal verb ‘look for’ in our conversations.
Ben: We will talk about the phrasal verb ‘look for’ today.
Iris: That’s great, Ben. To look for means to search. I was looking for my glasses this morning.
Ben: You are right. “Look for” means trying to locate something. For example: Columbus discovered America while looking for India.
Iris: Got it. Another meaning of look for is to want something. If you are looking for a change, you need to work towards it!
Ben: Correct. This is similar to search for something, but you can also use it to mean desire.
Iris: ‘Look for’ is a really simple phrasal verb, isn’t it?
Ben : It is! And now I am looking for some sample conversations.
Iris : Here they are.
Milla: What are you doing Kate?
Kate: I’m looking for my cat.
Milla: Oh! It was around here just a minute ago.
Kate: There she is! What is she looking for in the lawn?
Kate: How is aunt Merry?
Milla: She’s better, but she’s looking for a new doctor.
Milla: Well, her doctor says she needs surgery and she doesn’t want one.
Milla: Look Kate! Mom sent you such a beautiful ring!
Kate: Wow, that’s so beautiful!
Milla: Yes, it is!
Kate: This is exactly what I was looking for!
