    Bonjour,

    Je pense que vous parleriez: J'attend avec impatience de vous voir.

    Je suis Americaine et je ne suis pas certaine. On qui parle français couramment sera sûr.

    J'espère

    In southern France you would say "Je me languis de te voir".

    Ou plutôt "Je me languis de te revoir" car ce serait le sens de "again".

    Plus simplement j'aurais dit :
    "J'ai hâte de te revoir."

    Ou encore "Il me tarde de te revoir".

    For me "J'ai hâte...." and "Il me tarde...." sound like something a character from a Proust novel might say. The English is very current and rather informal. I'd imagine more "Je meurs d'envie de te revoir" or, for example, if you have a date fixed for Sunday, "Vivement dimanche !"

    I agree with Dear Prudence and Wild Bee : 'J'ai hâte de te revoir' or 'Il me tarde de te revoir' is day-to-day/usual wording and sounds appropriate to me here.

    Seconded. Also: Je suis impatient de te revoir.

    Well, the thing is that in my region, Haute Provence, we use from time to time "il me tarde de...", this is not that formal...
    Cheers!
