Hi Dmitriy!
1) In this situation, we would say "my friend is looking forward to summer vacation." We usually use "look forward to" in more formal situations. For an example, in a phone call with a potential employer we might say, "I look forward to meeting with you in person to discuss my qualifications for this job."

2) We could say that a "fire may break out in the workshop." For something to "break out" means that it begins suddenly. A fight can break out or begin suddenly, a war can break out, or a riot can break out.

3) In this situation, we use the phrasal verb "to take out" to talk about removing something from somewhere. For instance, Pavel took out his wallet to pay for dinner. We could also say, Pavel took his wallet out (of his pocket) to pay for dinner.

4) "do without a hammer." "He used a stone to hammer in nails" or to "hammer nails into the wall."

Thank you for all your sentences!

Thanks Darya! I look forward to our English lesson too.
On the second sentence it is better to say, "When I see that I have run out of coffee in my kitchen, I am disappointed." Also, consider the verbs "notice" or "realize" as good alternatives to the verb "see."
On the third sentence, we don`t usually say that we "have a tragedy." It is more natural to say that "there has been a tragedy," that "there was a tragedy" or that "a tragedy occurred."

You`re right, it is difficult to turn down a friend in need. Hopefully you could work together to solve your problem.
