  • How to Describe Excitement in English
    Are you ever so happy and excited about something that you can't contain your joy? In this English lesson, we will explore eight different ways to express your excitement for something you're going to do in the future. Let's dive in!
    One way to convey your excitement is by saying 'I'm pumped.' This phrase is a slightly informal and slang way of expressing anticipation for something thrilling. While you wouldn't use this phrase in a formal document, it's great for casual conversations. For example, if you're eagerly looking forward to the first market day where you'll be selling flowers, you might say, 'I'm pumped about the first market day.'
    When you know you're going to do something exciting but still have to wait for it, you can simply say 'I can't wait.' This phrase expresses your eagerness and impatience. Similar to 'I'm pumped,' you can end the sentence here or specify what you can't wait for. For instance, if your birthday is coming up and you're thrilled about it, you might say, 'I can't wait for my birthday this year.'
    Anticipation can build up as you eagerly wait for an event. While waiting for your birthday, you might imagine the fun you'll have, such as having a campfire outside and inviting your siblings over. This excitement can be described by saying 'I'm looking forward to.' This phrase expresses your enthusiasm and anticipation for something in the future. For example, 'I'm looking forward to my birthday. It will be a really good time.'
    Another way to convey excitement is by saying 'I'm so excited about.' This phrase emphasizes your enthusiasm for a particular event or experience. It's a simple and straightforward way to express your anticipation. For instance, if you're excited about going on a trip, you might say, 'I'm so excited about the trip.'
    Sometimes, your excitement can be contagious, and you wish to share it with others. In such cases, you can say 'I'm bursting with excitement.' This phrase vividly portrays your boundless excitement and enthusiasm. It conveys the idea that you're so excited that it feels like you might burst with joy. For example, 'I'm bursting with excitement about the concert.'
    Your eagerness for an upcoming event can also be described by saying 'I'm counting down the days.' This phrase expresses your anticipation by highlighting the passage of time until the awaited event. It reflects the excitement building up as you count down each day. For instance, if you're looking forward to a vacation, you might say, 'I'm counting down the days until my vacation.'
    Sometimes, the anticipation becomes overwhelming, and you can't contain your excitement. In such instances, you can say 'I'm on pins and needles.' This phrase vividly conveys the idea that you're feeling excited and anxious at the same time, as if you're sitting uncomfortably on pins and needles. For example, 'I'm on pins and needles before the final exam.'
    Lastly, another way to express your excitement is by saying 'I'm thrilled to bits.' This phrase portrays extreme joy and excitement. It conveys the idea that you're so thrilled that you feel as though you're in tiny pieces. For instance, 'I'm thrilled to bits about the promotion.'
    In conclusion, there are various ways to describe excitement in English. Whether you're pumped, can't wait, looking forward to, bursting with excitement, counting down the days, on pins and needles, or thrilled to bits, each phrase captures the joy and anticipation we feel for something exciting in the future. Now, go ahead and use these expressions to share your excitement with others!
  • Subtitles section
  • So I'm sure there are times when you're really happy because you're excited about something you're going to do in the future.
  • In this English lesson, I'll teach you eight different ways you can talk about that thing that you're going to do.
  • Ways to talk about that thing that you're excited about.
  • So tomorrow is the first day of market.
  • We're going to go sell our flowers for the first time this year.
  • And earlier today, Jen said, I'm pumped.
  • I'm pumped about the first market day.
  • And that's the first phrase I want to teach you.
  • When you know you're going to do something exciting, you can use that phrase to express that excitement.
  • Now, this is a little bit informal.
  • It's kind of slang in a way.
  • When you say I'm pumped, it's not something you would write in a formal document.
  • But if there's something that you're really excited about, something that's going to happen in a few days, you might just say I'm pumped and you can end the sentence there.
  • Or you can say I'm pumped about and then describe the thing that you're pumped about.
  • Usually, when you know you're going to be doing something exciting, you have to wait.
  • Maybe it's a few days from now and you have to wait.
  • And another phrase we use to express the excitement is to say I can't wait.
  • And again, you can end the sentence there, or you can say I can't wait for and describe the thing that you're waiting for.
  • I have a birthday coming up in a few months.
  • I never say exactly when it is.
  • And I can't wait for my birthday this year.
  • It will be really fun.
  • We'll probably have a campfire outside.
  • I will invite my brothers and sisters over and it will be a really good time.
  • But between now and then I have to wait.
  • And if I was to describe my excitement, I would say I can't wait for my birthday.
  • So I have to admit I cheated a little bit for this video.
  • The next phrase is the phrase I can hardly wait.
  • And it's almost the same as the last phrase, but I wanted there to be eight phrases.
  • And this seemed like a good one to teach you as well.
  • And by the way, it's not just some random phrase.
  • It's very common.
  • When you're excited about something in the future, you might say, I can hardly wait.
  • Maybe your birthday is coming up and you can hardly wait for your birthday.
  • What this means is you do have to wait, but you're so excited, the waiting is really, really hard.
  • You really want that birthday to come.
  • You can hardly wait for your birthday.
  • So in a recent English lesson, I talked about how the school year is ending and I'm looking forward to summer vacation.
  • In a few weeks, school will be over.
  • And that's the phrase I would use to describe my excitement right now.
  • I am looking forward to summer vacation.
  • I am looking forward to the school year being done.
  • I still have a lot of work to do, but as I do my work each day, I have a little bit of excitement.
  • I have to kind of try not to be too excited.
  • I have a little bit of excitement because I'm really looking forward to the end of the school year.
  • So this next phrase is a little bit of a boring one, and it's probably the most common way to say you're excited about something.
  • And it's the phrase to be excited about something.
  • We sometimes use the word for as well in English.
  • You can be excited about something or excited for something.
  • Here's a good example.
  • Next year, I will watch basketball.
  • I like to watch the Toronto Raptors.
  • I am excited for next year.
  • I am excited about next year.
  • Apparently there will be a different head coach and maybe a few different players on the team.
  • So interchangeably again, for and about, I could say I'm excited for next year.
  • I think it'll be amazing.
  • I'm excited about next year.
  • I think it will be really cool.
  • This next phrase is kind of formal and kind of old fashioned.
  • So you won't really use this in an English conversation, but you might read it in a book or you might hear it while watching a TV show.
  • It's the phrase eagerly anticipating.
  • So imagine there's a couple and they are going to have a baby.
  • Maybe in a month, they're going to have a baby.
  • So you might hear them say, we are eagerly anticipating the birth of our child.
  • So it's again, very formal.
  • You won't really use this in a conversation, but you might hear it or you might read it somewhere.
  • So it's good to know.
  • So I've probably mentioned a few times that school is almost done.
  • And one of the phrases I might use in this situation as well is that I'm counting the days.
  • I'm not sure exactly how many days there are.
  • It's really just a figure of speech, but definitely because I'm excited about the end of the school year, I'm counting the days.
