People sometimes mistakenly write “looking forward to hear from you,” but this is incorrect. The correct phrase is looking forward to hearing from you.
The phrasal verb “look forward to” is always followed by a direct object, the thing you’re looking forward to. As the direct object has to be a noun phrase, it should be the gerund “hearing,” not the verb “hear.”
Just checking in is a standard phrase used to start an email (or other message) that’s intended to ask someone for a response or follow-up action in a friendly, informal way. However, it’s a cliché opening that can come across as passive-aggressive, so we recommend avoiding it in favor of a more direct opening like “We previously discussed …”
In a more personal context, you might encounter “just checking in” as part of a longer phrase such as “I’m just checking in to see how you’re doing.” In this case, it’s not asking the other person to do anything but rather asking about their well-being (emotional or physical) in a friendly way.
ASAP is an abbreviation of the phrase “as soon as possible.”
It’s typically used to indicate a sense of urgency in highly informal contexts (e.g., “Let me know ASAP if you need me to drive you to the airport”).
“ASAP” should be avoided in more formal correspondence. Instead, use an alternative like at your earliest convenience.
