Well

There are several uses for the word "well". One important use is to show that you are ready to finish a conversation. The end of a conversation might go something like this:

A: Well, I look forward to working with you.

B: Yeah, me too.

A: See you around.

B: Bye.

Some other examples of "well" used to end a conversation are:

Well, it's nice to have you back.

OK. Well, it was a pleasure meeting you.

I look forward to (doing something)

To "look forward to (doing something)" means to be excited about it. However, this is mostly a polite expression so it doesn't carry a really strong feeling of excitement. It does sound polite, though.

When you've just met someone in a business or formal situation, use the phrase "I look forward to ___ing" near the end of your first conversation. For example:

I look forward to working with you.

I look forward to doing business with you.

I look forward to meeting you. (Use this with someone who you've been writing to, but haven't met yet.
