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?
