Agreed :). Just as a friendly note/tip - "Non posso aspettare" is used more for I literally cannot wait any longer. "Non vedo l'ora (di)" is used for I can't wait because I'm so excited. Happy language learning :)

Exactly! Non posso aspettare is never used as an idiom for expressing expectation.

When the subject of the action eagerly waited for is the same speaker (i.e. he/she who is waiting), the construction is:

  • Non vedo l'ora di + infinitive

  • Non vedo l'ora di leggere i racconti. = I can't wait to read the stories.

Instead, when the subject of the action waited for is not the same speaker, this other construction is used:

  • Non vedo l'ora che + subject + verb (subjunctive)

  • Non vedo l'ora che Duolingo pubblichi i racconti. = I can't wait for Duolingo to publish the stories.

Otherwise, especially when the verb is intransitive, or the passive voice is used, an alternative construction is:

  • Non vedo l'ora che + verb (subjunctive) + postponed subject

  • Non vedo l'ora che siano (or vengano) pubblicati i racconti. = I can't wait for the stories to be published.
