Hello Paco,

Thanks a lot for greate information.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Paco you wrote look up to=respect. But shouldn't it be like that look up to=visit or call or get well

And looked up in dictionary you said. To me it should be look something up therefore I looked the E-J dictionary up.

Excuse me but or else do i know wrong?
