look forward

I don't really look forward to going to Santiago.

You 'look forward to' something that you are excited about that will happen in the future. Notice the following:

  1. I look forward to spring vacation every year.
  2. Are you looking forward to starting your new job?

'Indigenous' people are the people who are native to a certain area.  This word is used to describe the original people in a location, not the colonialists who moved there. Notice the following:

  1. This is a tradition which is practiced by the indigenous people in this area.
  2. There are almost no indigenous people left in this country.

if you're lucky

We can say 'if you are lucky' to mean that something would be good outcome or option, but might not be possible or happen. Notice the following:

  1. If you're lucky, you will get to see some wild animals around here.
  2. If we are lucky, we won't miss the flight.

manage

Yeah, I can manage.

If you can 'manage' to do something, it means you will be able to do it. Notice the following:

  1. How do you manage to take care of 5 children by yourself?
  2. I can only manage to make it to the gym 3 times a week.

glaciers

You have a lot of mountains, rivers, glaciers.

'Glaciers' are large ice formations that can be as big as mountains. Notice the following:
