    Hello Mariana,

    I would be more than happy to meet you at the TESOL Convention; it is such an exciting event.
    I mean I hope we will find each other in the middle of all those participants.
    We keep in touch and really hoping to meet you in Denver.

    Hi there,

    I think the usage of "I am looking forward + ing" right? It should be
    'I am looking forward to being ... not 'to be'.

    Regards,

    Hiya

    I never meant to offend you. Just pointed out your your mistake. We always learn out of making mistakes. 
    Thanks for being so polite!

    Thanks so much, Shiva, for the nice note.

    What Shiva says is so important. We do learn from our mistakes.

    I'm studying several languages and always hope that people will help me get better privately so that I can ask a private question if I still don't understand what the error was.

    Best wishes,

    Charles
